Just off tree-lined Green Lane, across the street from Fairview Park and tucked behind blooming perennials sits 4440 Dexter. This handsome stone Victorian twin oozes character and charm. The delicately painted front porch is wide and inviting and an ideal place to enjoy a cool fall evening chatting with neighbors. Enter into a sun-filled living room with hardwood parquet floors, 12' ceilings, lovely arched transom windows and thick molding and then find a formal dining room perfectly suited for family meals and spacious enough for large dinner parties. The heart of the home is always the kitchen. It is here that you'll enjoy entertaining, hosting and gathering. Dinner parties begin with cocktails in the kitchen and then move out back to the spacious yard, perfect for fire pits and lounge chairs. Upstairs you'll find three sunny bedrooms with brand new wall-to-wall carpeting and a full bath on the second floor and two additional bedrooms plus smaller den with refinished hardwood floors and roof deck potential on the third. Ideally situated exactly between Manayunk and Roxborough, you'll love the delightful bistros, gourmet food shops, friendly cafes, fine restaurants, and local pubs of Manayunk's Main Street and Roxborough's Ridge Avenue. If you are a nature enthusiast, you know this location is second to none. Spend your weekends walking or biking along Kelly Drive or hiking through Fairmount Park and the Wissahickon. Perfectly located a stone's throw from the regional rail, buses and major transit (Route 1 and I-76) and Center City is just 15 minutes away.
