    Property Details

    Welcome to elegant and stately Riverview Farm Estate. This stunning home, originally part of a 100 acre dairy farm, stands on close to 3 acres. This Colonial Revival style home built in 1916 features 6 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 3 half baths. The front driveway leads around the side of the home to a large circle drive and continues out to the back driveway (and second address: 412 Riverview Rd). The front to back entry includes a grand, extra wide stair case and is flanked by an expansive formal living room and formal dining room. The living room boasts a wood burning fireplace, original built-ins, and two sets of French doors leading to an outdoor covered patio area with an additional outdoor fireplace. The mood is set in the gracious 1st floor formal dining room by its gas fireplace. There is also a first floor office with fireplace and a large family room with a fireplace that matches the scale of the room. The family room is adjacent to a 2nd covered patio that overlooks the heated, in-ground pool. The kitchen and butler~s pantry with its quality original built in cabinetry have been updated with beautiful granite countertops and backsplash(2019), updated appliances, and new fixtures. This part of the home was originally the private quarters historically used for in-house staff that could easily be utilized as an au pair /in-law suite and features a back stair case to a private area with a bedroom, sitting room, and updated full bath. The 2nd floor continues with 2 additional guest rooms, one with private half bath, a cozy sitting area with large fire place, and doors that lead to large balcony. There is a large bedroom that connects to the master bedroom, perfect for a nursery. The master bedroom features another fireplace, large walk-in closet/dressing room and private beautiful ensuite (updated 2015) with heated flooring. This floor is complete with a hall jack and jill full bath (updated 2015). The back staircase leads to the 3rd floor featuring a grand ballroom with high rounded ceilings, large dormer windows, and a fire place. This level is complete with a private bedroom, additional bedroom (currently used as a gym), and half bath. The full basement is partially finished with ample storage and huge laundry room w/ 2 washers and 2 dryers. The professionally landscaped grounds feature an in-ground heated pool and pond. This home is truly filled with amazing character and history, original wide plank hard wood floors throughout, and original wood work everywhere you look; it~s a perfect blend of history with all of the right updates and upgrades. It was originally designed by Mr. Emmons and built by Carroll Thayer and took 3 years to build. In addition, there is a detached stone 3 car garage with apartment. The prime location near the Ville is within walking distance to Swarthmore's restaurants, shops, Swarthmore College, and train station plus offers a rare opportunity to own a slice of history.
