Does your home make you happy or do you find yourself dreaming of finding new digs?
Scientific evidence spelled out in an article entitled “The Psychological Cost of Boring Buildings” suggests we can live happier and healthier lives if we are surrounded by interesting architecture and vibrant settings.
So we compiled a list of the top five homes in Montgomery County you can buy right now that could turn that frown upside down.
1. 1129 Mill Road Circle, Rydal $875,000
You may feel like you’re climbing into the heavens (or descending into an aquarium) as you scale the dramatic floating staircase surrounded by cheery aqua-colored walls.
If sunlight is your smile-maker, then the sun-drenched family room will make your cheeks hurt and vitamin D levels skyrocket. This 4200+ square foot French Colonial has it all –even a wet bar to serve your guests Dom Perignon. I’ll be waiting for my invitation.
2. 200 Deaver Road, Wyncote $399,900
If you thrive on being unique then this converted carriage house may be your oasis. The 100-year-old home offers more than 3700 square feet of living space, blending old charm and modern conveniences.
But it may be the sprawling master bedroom that lures you to sign the 30-year note. You’ll relish the large walk-in closet, spa-like master bath and the cupola/skylight over the bed which allows warm light to stream in.
Oh and the elementary school is only a block away, so sleep in -if it’s not too bright.
3. 1108 Chestnut Lane, Flourtown $949,000
If you’re only happy with a golf club or ping pong paddle in your hand, then this stately Georgian with a putting green and table tennis room may be worth pulling out the cool million stashed under your mattress.
If you don’t have that much saved up for this 6960 square foot, 5-bedroom estate then perhaps your in-laws could pitch in. After all, they’ll lay claim to the second floor in-law suite. What could make you happier? Click to see the putting green and Elvis painting.
4. 929 Limekiln Pike, Ambler $399,900
It’s no secret that connecting with nature helps our overstressed brains. That’s why this modest 2-bedroom ranch which sits on nearly 5 acres makes the list. Relax in a hammock amid the towering trees or feed the fish in the backyard pond and stream.
Inside, the updated kitchen retains its rustic charm. And the wall of windows in the great room gives you a priceless view of your serene surroundings twelve months a year.
5. 105 Cedar Street, Jenkintown $269,900
If being part of a small town near a big city is more your style then this twin has your name written on it. It’s located in the very walkable borough of Jenkintown, close to many restaurants, shops, theater, bakery and soon-to-open brew pub.
The 4 bedroom twin isn’t completely updated but it has charm and LOCATION!
