The Royersford Unicorn; An almost mythical dwelling that only appears on rare occasions for the chosen rightful ownership to capture! If you're in the hunt for a custom pre 1900's period single that's architecturally gorgeous, has been pridefully crafted over 30 grateful years of ownership, and is nestled in mature landscape among a historic/revitalizing community within Spring Ford District; then welcome home to 518 Walnut Street! This victorian bungalow is overwhelmingly expansive featuring 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, multiple hobby spaces, and a 3 car garage with opportunity above. It's not the macro highlights that will only capture you though; it's the attention to detail and craftsmanship that will have you have you swooning walking through this home. A stunning stone front entrance featuring a porch of many memories accenting the Saint Peter's Quarry Stonework and hidden in mature landscapes. Entering the foyer; your eyes will be drawn to the 9 plus foot ceilings, glass front built-ins, iconic hardwoods/woodworking, and gentle light from large windows with highlighted stained glass accents in areas. The dining space situates a classically tiled gas fireplace and flows seamlessly into the living room creating a well balanced area for hosting. The eat-in kitchen on the rear of the home is a highlighted space on it's own right-Featuring abundant natural light, granite counters, gas cooking, breakfast nook, and pantry/storage space. There are two substantial bedrooms and a massive bathroom with tile floors, corian vanity with a double sink, and large stall shower to complete our main floor tour. Walking up the curved wooden staircase, we turn the corner to a tranquil tub setting in the second bathroom. You can almost smell the relaxing candles and hear the gentle music as you envision yourself climbing into the classic tub after a long day at work. The front bedroom is the largest of the four bedrooms and has a walk-in closet you can get lost in. The main bedroom located at the rear of the home features fantastic view points from the balcony overlooking town towards the river and neighboring town. This primary bedroom suite hosts a recently updated full bathroom, closet nook, and maintains a kitchenette as part of the previous legal duplex use. This unique home offers so much potential, including the ability to earn rental income if it is updated with today's local code standards in mind. The rear of the home offers additional outdoor space with the recently roofed pergola and wood fireplace on the rear multilevel deck. The full walk up 3 car garage on the rear of the home is accessed from Washington Street via a shared driveway. The owner planned his stained glass workshop above the garage but found his basement hobby space to be preferential. Accessing the hobby lobby from the rear entrance, we walk down a small flight of stairs into an artist's sanctuary. The finished space is amplified by the pointed stone wall, daylight from the windows, half bathroom, and wood stove. The stained glass studio/workshop is accessible to the front of the home within the basement. The laundry room and mechanicals complete the adaptable basement amenities. Please take a look at all the wonderful and motivating opportunities Royersford Borough has to offer as it continues it's defining revitalization. Will you be the new owner of this local legend?
