    Property Details

    Built at the turn of the century, this distinct Victorian is filled with unique, well preserved original details that simply cannot be replicated. A classic foursquare home, 314 Lafayette Avenue, was designed by Samuel Milligan, a noted architect working under the Swarthmore Improvement and Construction Tracts and was built alongside 310 Lafayette. Note the photos of its construction in the pictures. With the improvement of the rail line in the early 1880s, homes along the Media-West Chester line became desirable suburban retreats for people who worked in Philadelphia. Notice the grand, expansive feel as you walk up the original flagstone steps to the large, wrap around Porch buffered by Azalea and Rhododendron bushes, ferns, and Dogwood trees. Enter the Foyer through the massive original door. This is a Center Hall Colonial with a 4-square layout and the original wood staircase. The Living Room features large, original windows'¦don't miss the waves in the glass they authenticate their age built in shelves, and an abundance of natural light. The original wood floors run throughout this entire 3 story home. Opposite the Living Room is the Dining Room that flows directly into the Retro Kitchen, waiting for you to add your own updates and personal touches with a Laundry and Powder Rooms directly off it. Take the staircase up to the second and the third floors where you'll find 6 ample sized bedrooms, 2 hall bathrooms and a 2 Storage rooms. Exit the first floor from the Kitchen's covered back door to access a large yard and detached 2 car garage. The Garage has a loft space with electric. And the yard wraps around the entire home, giving you a sense of true privacy. With over half an acre of land. Located a heartbeat away from Swarthmore's Borough Hall and Library, COOP food market, the Swarthmore College campus, Thatcher Kid's Park and all the interesting and new restaurants, coffee shops and stores in town. It's only a short walk to the Swarthmore Regional Rail train station and conveniently located near I95 and 476.
