FSBO in Wallingford, PA

Imagine having it it all:  nature and the city, comfort and convenience, affordability and design.  Award-winning schools, the library, the art center and a train to the city mere steps from your front door.   A view of the trees from every window extending to a beautifully landscaped yard offering room to roam and entertain.  A lively small town moments away.  Space.  Four bedrooms and a den kind of space.  Oh, and a separate home office or art studio or guest house kind of space.  And did I mention the architecture?   Imagine that your 1958 mid-century modern fantasy by Irwin Stein (a student of Paul Rudolph) is currently featured in an exhibit at The State Museum of Pennsylvania and has been published in the NY Times, Atomic Ranch, Philadelphia Magazine, Avanti Magazine, Houzz, Apartment Therapy and Curbed.  Imagine sitting in your incredible living room — complete with 24’ ceilings and walls of glass, in front of your three-sided fireplace — happy and content.  Imagine having it all.

HISTORY/ARCHITECTURE
This Mid Century Modern Wallingford, PA home in the suburbs of Philadelphia was designed in 1958 by Philadelphia architect Irwin Stein (born 1930) for Morton and Elsa Wachs. Stein studied under Paul Rudolph at the University of Pennsylvania and worked in the office of notable modern architects Oscar Stonorov and Frank Weiss.  Dr. Wachs, a dentist, was beginning his career and commissioned Stein to build a 2-bedroom house with attached dental office.  Nearly a decade later, the Wachs family had expanded — and Dr. and Mrs. Wachs once again turned to Stein to design an addition to the home.
ABOUT THE AREA
This home is located a half block from the SEPTA train, which takes commuters into Philadelphia in 30 minutes, a block to award-winning Wallingford Elementary School and a block to the local library.  Nearby Media, PA offers conveniences like coffee shops and restaurants, Trader Joe’s, banks, drugstores and locally-owned businesses….plus the charm of a small town with its holiday parades and community events.
