Welcome to this amazing mid-century modern home designed by interior designer and original owner, Davey Greenberg, who studied under the renowned Frank Lloyd Wright. 918 Frazier Road presents an opportunity to claim a true Rydal gem in Abington Township. This lovely home is situated on just over a half-acre with manicured landscaping and mature canopies.
Not your average mid-century, this home features numerous Wissahickon Schist elevations beginning with the main wall as you enter from the 2-car carport. The flagstone floor flows in multiple directions as you enter the home. Head to the right towards the dining room passing the breakfast-bar with glass tile counter and hidden under-counter storage. To the left are three convenient closets disguised as a work of art. Just beyond where the flagstone ends and where the black walnut floors begin is an expansive dining room and living room with vaulted ceilings and a wall of glass comprised of massive sliding doors, each leading to the full-length main level covered deck. Give a little push on the wall as you pass from the dining room to the living room to expose the hidden bar. The center piece of the sprawling living room is a double-sided, wood burning fireplace with flagstone hearth. Had you continued straight when entering the home, the gorgeous flagstone spills into a more intimate living space on the back side of the double-sided wood-burning stone fireplace where a floor-to-ceiling glass wall combines with a southerly exposure for your light filled enjoyment. A half bath with marble countertop is located just off this living space before climbing three stairs to the living quarters. The primary bedroom is located to the right at the south side of the home. This massive primary suite was constructed through the combination of two of the original bedrooms plus an addition to house a large primary bathroom and laundry area. The primary suite showcases windows facing both east and west, two walk-in closets, plus a water closet with stall shower, grab bars, and a granite shower seat. The larger bathing room includes a sky light, large Jacuzzi tub, double sink with granite counters, Brookhaven Cabinets, a laundry closet, built-in ironing board, linen closet, and a cedar closet. Two more bedrooms, an additional linen closet, and a large hall bath with a shower over tub are located down the hall.
The kitchen delivers an abundance of counter and cabinet space, plus a stainless-steel dishwasher, double sink with disposal, double wall ovens, a fantastic pantry, and a 5-burner gas stovetop with classic vent hood mounted on an exposed brick wall. Connecting the kitchen with the deck is a light-filled breakfast room surrounded by windows with built-ins and another skylight.
The lower level provides roughly 600 square feet of additional living space. This space is currently configured as a game/recreation room with ample storage, multiple rooms, and a spacious full bath with stall shower. With walkout access to the lower-level patio, this partially below-grade space would be well suited for an Au Pair suite conversion or fourth bedroom.
This location provides the best of both worlds with a low traffic neighborhood situated just minutes from Abington Friends, Alverthorpe Park, and the convenience of shops and dining of both Abington and Jenkintown. Less than a mile from Septa’s Rydal regional rail station and the West Trenton Line for an easy commute to Center City.
