People don’t go to Gladwyne to find fixer-uppers. No, this Main Line neighborhood is known for its mega-mansions that seek eight-digit price tags whenever they hit the market. That’s what makes this midcentury modern home on Monk Road, listed for just $349,900, so appealing.
Built in 1958, it’s clear that this 4-bedroom, 2.5-bath home was once pretty great. Or, as the listing puts it, “cutting edge.” It sits on the edge of the Schuylkill River, tucked away among the trees. Even more interesting is that it’s located less than a mile on the same road as the jaw-dropping Linden Hall, which is on the market for $16.5 million.
But back to this fixer-upper. It clocks in at 1,648 square feet and sits on just under one acre. It’s three stories, with the entrance on the second level. A staircase leads down to the living room, which has a fireplace and built-in seating that faces the floor-to-ceiling windows.
There’s no doubt the home needs significant work. Some of the floorboards have been torn up, and the kitchen and bathrooms have certainly seen better days. But there’s also no doubt that the home has plenty of potential—it just needs the right owner to bring it back to life.
Up to the task? The seller will wait two weeks from its listing date (February 28) to review offers.
