Description

Back in1921 Garnett M. Deck built a "cabin in the woods" of Ambler. He and his wife Blanche raised six children there and opened the local hardware store that still operates on North Main Street. Three families have owned this magical place since it was built+G-the Deck+GGs, the Betts+GG and the Quinn+GGs. Now it+GGs your turn to buy the Lodge and start making YOUR memories. The house has 2100 square feet of living space, a pond, an +-+ acre open playing field, a pickle ball court, and another 1 +-+ acres of ground with hundreds of mature trees. Come and sit on the huge wrap around porch and experience firsthand the beauty of nature all around you. And come wintertime you will be living in front of the two-story stone fireplace in the great room!The recent owners have made the three bedrooms downstairs into +G+themed+G- rooms for an Airbnb experience. You could continue offering that rental opportunity or easily reclaim the rooms for your family. Its unique design combines rustic with vintage and many modern amenities. The second floor is ready for the next renovation...perhaps a master suite with great views of the property. At the Lodge you have the best of both worlds...a quiet and private island away from the hustle and bustle and yet only a few minutes+GG walk to Ambler's fine restaurants, pubs, live performance theater, independent film house, food co-op, retail shops and the regional train line taking you to Doylestown, Philadelphia and New York! This is a one-of-a-kind home, and this is a once in a lifetime chance to own a piece of Ambler history and live in the most unique and special spot in the area!+G+I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."-Henry David Thoreau
