Located on Timber Lane in Devon, this 2-story, early American-styled, brick home is part of the exclusive Shand Tract, one of the most picturesque neighborhoods in the country. The builder, Robert Narrigan, built this house for his personal residence but ended up selling it to Eugene Jaeger MD, son of the well-known brain surgeon who founded the Department of Neurosurgery at Jefferson Medical Hospital. This house features not only a flat, 3/4-acre lot at the highest crest of the lane but a sizable building envelope off the living room side of the house for a large addition. With the traditional 4 bedrooms, 2- 1/2 baths, this home also offers the easy potential for a 5th bedroom and full bath over the garage. Graced with a large kitchen featuring a fireplace and raised hearth that opens to a lovely slate patio, this property also has an elegant foyer, dining room and living room with another fireplace and built-in bookshelves. All these rooms and all the bedrooms have gorgeous hardwood floors. Recently added is a second-story sun porch where you can enjoy a cup of tea on a late afternoon while looking over a forest of beautiful trees. The lower level of the house features a music studio and traditional photographic darkroom with a sink and built-in paper safe. As far as the neighborhood, you cannot wish for more. Convenient to local elementary, middle and high schools, route 202, Lancaster Avenue, the Devon train station, The Devon Horse Show, two post offices and several shopping centers (including a Trader Joes), 674 Timber Lane is also an easy commute to Center City and the Philadelphia Airport.
