    4 BED, 2.5 BATH JENKINTOWN BEAUTY Graceful Elegance, there's really no better way to describe 501 Cheltena Avenue and it's not just the structure itself. She sits comfortably on a corner, atop a hill overlooking a lush green expanse with a backdrop of tree covered hills to the rear of the home and one of Jenkintown's most beautiful and well kept streets to the front. The current residents have owned and lovingly maintained this 1922 beauty and the 1/3 Acre lot upon which it rests for the past 40 years and are now turning it over for new memories to be made. Through the stately front door you're welcomed into the formal living room. A wonderful space for entertaining friends and sharing a glass of your favorite Burgundy accompanied by the calming wood burning fireplace. Beyond the living room is a different sort of 'escape room'. This library/study/den/reading/meditation/room immediately lowers one's blood pressure about 20 points. The rear view mentioned in the introduction is here in full view. When replacing all of the windows in the home (fine quality, historic wood windows) the owner had a large custom window installed in the rear wall exposing the sweeping back yard and patio. To the right of the entrance is the formal dining room with crown moulding and double windows looking out to the front garden. Continuing through the dining room is a relaxing family room ready for you to put your feet up and binge stream your favorite shows or take in the game of the day. I don't know about you, but I love a breakfast room. Not a breakfast bar, or breakfast nook. Breakfast deserves better!! This one connects the rear of the family room and the kitchen and is the sister view of the aforementioned library. A convenient and charming powder room has been thoughtfully added to the breakfast room. From here we complete the ground floor back in the well appointed kitchen featuring granite counter tops, with a door to the deck and back yard. The dry walk-out basement currently features a workshop area and storage. Though there is currently no direct access to the garage, which sits below the house, I believe access would be attainable. Upstairs is the spacious master bedroom with two large closets and built-ins. At the end of the hall is a nicely sized bright white bathroom with subway tiles and a jacuzzi tub. Something not often seen in homes of this era is a laundry room, this home has one right where you want it near the bedrooms with plenty of space for linens and cleaning supplies as well. There are two more bedrooms on this floor, one of which leads to a finished third floor dormer suite. This suite could be configured a number of ways. Currently the very large center room is used as a bedroom with an exercise area though this could also be used as a sitting area/tv space. There's a full bathroom on one end with a clawfoot tub and on the other end is what could be a bedroom or office or it's current use, storage. There are four storage areas in the eaves. If you're still awake and reading this you should just call your realtor and make an appt. The roof was replaced around 2009 with architectural shingles, all windows were replaced with high quality 'historic look' wooden windows with the exception of the dormer which has vinyl. The heater was replaced in 2010 and the water heater was replaced in 2020. Jenkintown Borough is a small walkable community with fine restaurants, bars and boutique shops on about 1/2 a square mile with its own highly-rated school district ( Jenkintown Elem, Middle & High Schools. There are many community events throughout the year (Arts Fest, Summer Music Series, Parades, Santa visits, Chili Cook off, et al) There are many opportunities to volunteer and become part of the community. This home is a 16 min walk to Jenkintown/Wyncote Regional Rail Station, 12 min to Noble S 11 min walk to the schools and 13 min walk to Town Square. Showings 4/23,24,
