Iconic. Historic. Coveted. The Ingleneuk is like no other. From it's beginning as an investment property called The Thatcher house (Swarthmore's first Mayor was a resident), to the world renowned Ingleneuk Tea House, 120 Park is now a home, office, and apartment. Entering the MAIN HOUSE from the mahogany wrap-around porch with bead board ceiling, you'll especially enjoy one of the features of the original home: its intricate, hand crafted fireplaces with hand carved mantles, antique tiles and amazing cast iron Fire backs in the Dining & Breakfast rooms as well as the Foyer. The turreted side of the home houses the elegant formal DINING ROOM with recessed lighting and antique chandelier Imagine entertaining here with original curved windows overlooking the front garden! A lovely BREAKFAST ROOM opens to the well-equipped KITCHEN which has been at the heart of the home for dozens of large events. The kitchen features Stainless steel appliances, a Granite island, Cherry cabinets and is completely open to the FAMILY ROOM. Here you'll find French doors, a new gas fireplace and an entire wall of Cherry shelving. The LIVING ROOM can hold the largest of family gatherings and also has a gas fireplace and French doors out to the porch. On the 2nd floor of the Main house, you'll love the MASTER SUITE with original curved windows, walk-in closet, lush Master bathroom featuring separate Shower and Jacuzzi tub, marble tiling and extra-wide vanity. There are 2 more bedrooms and a hall bath here too. BUT THEN, what a treat to have an entire SECOND WING, where a large reception room/BEDROOM, 2 OFFICES and a conference room are accessed from the side of the house. A full bath is here as well. Travel up the back stairs and find a complete apartment with kitchenette, laundry room, living room, deck, bedroom and full bath. The second wing has access to each floor if desired. Finally, the third floor includes a carpeted landing and several very large storage rooms. OUTSIDE enjoy a flagstone patio with mature plantings, parking for several cars and a 2-car garage. Utilities include 4 separate gas heating and air conditioning units, 2 gas hot water heaters, Basement French drain and 2 sump pumps, 1 with battery back up, hardwood flooring, new wall-to-wall carpeting. Convenient to all Swarthmore has to offer: train, shops, Borough hall and schools. Don't miss this opportunity.
