Property Description

Welcome to 402 Gayley Street in Media Borough, also known as the Fussell home, with a great provenance. This historic, well-maintained 5 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths, Dutch Colonial from 1890 has an abundance of charm with modern updates, hardwood floors throughout, crown moulding, wall sconces and 9 foot ceilings. This home has a great curb appeal with a hill like setting. As you walk up the stairs notice the solar cell lights on the steps before you open the gate and walk onto the fantastic big porch where you can relax and enjoy the quiet surroundings. Before you enter, pay attention to the beautiful front door with an antique door knocker and the gorgeous custom made stained glass inlay. Inside, notice the grandness of the living room with the 9 foot ceilings along with custom built cabinetry surrounding a gas fireplace, this room flows into the dining room with wainscoting, a big bay window and a stunning big chandelier, adding elegance to this formal dining room. In the back you’ll find the modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances, maple cabinetry, quartz countertops and an island with room for bar stools. There is a half bath conveniently located by the door to the backyard. Right outside the kitchen, there is an area to enjoy cocktails and room for barstools. Then enter the charming, fenced in backyard. This one offers great privacy and has a stone patio, for relaxing or entertaining, with light strings in the trees to enjoy evenings in this oasis. An added bonus are the solar cell lights on the steps and the retainer wall. Upstairs, you’ll find three bedrooms and a freshly updated bathroom with beautiful grey and white floral tiles, a stained glass window and wainscoting. The third floor has two additional nice size bedrooms with painted hardwood floors. The walk out basement has been updated with new carpet and tile and is a great entertainment area, or a tv room, with a wet bar. Additionally, you’ll find a full bath as well as laundry on this floor. Walk out the basement and you’ll find beautiful stepping stones and steps leading up to a door that will take you into the backyard, or walk the other way to the front of the house. In the front of the house, there is parking space for 2 cars and, next to the parking area, there is a plaque from Media Borough council commemorating this beautiful, historic home.
