Single Family Detached
UNIQUE HOME SEEKS A UNIQUE NEW OWNER !!! No cookie-cutter used here but a mid-century modern, architect-designed, 1950s classic waterfront stunner with a steel framework & a bomb shelter. Built into a gently sloping 1.9 acre, partially wooded lot that has 175 feet of creek frontage, in-ground pool, hot tub & an upside-down layout. This striking design hits all the "modern" notes popular with architecture in 1954 even with the historic Cold War touch of a bomb shelter that now serves as the laundry room. You enter the home across the large stone patio next to the double carport from a driveway that can hold 3 or 4 additional cars. From the street that ends at the driveway, the home looks like a one-story with its living room, dinning room , kitchen and main bedroom all on that floor. But the surprise is the the lower level on the creek side of the house with its 3 large bedrooms, family room, full ceramic tile bath, laundry room & utility/storage room that leads out to the hot tub & in-ground pool area. Beyond the fenced-in pool area is the lush, wooded frontage along the Pompeston Creek which flows west & empties into the Delaware River less than a mile away. The front door opens into the seating area of the fully renovated modern kitchen with lots of cabinet space, granite countertops, tile floor & stainless appliances. The rest of the main level features hardwood floors, exposed brick & stone walls with original mahogany built-in shelving & room dividers. The main bedroom has two large closets & an on-suite bath that also opens opens to the kitchen's seating area. The large living room has picture windows with the front lawn on one side and the view of the pool & creek front on the other. The main bedroom and dinning room also have creek views. Go down the graceful wooden staircase and you're in the casual family room as large as the living room above with a picture window out to the hot tub & pool area. The laundry room features high-end cabinetry, large sink a washer/dryer custom built into what was the bomb shelter. Situated in quaint Riverton Boro just a block away from a park & recreation area & two blocks from NJ Transit's Riverline. There's lots of local, small store shopping in Riverton & nearby Palmyra with larger shopping centers along route 130 in nearby Cinnaminson. Its a beautiful bike or stroll from the home to the Delaware River to the west. Easy access to Tacony-Palmyra Bridge, I-95, Center City & NE Philadelphia.
