1121 Park Avenue, Bensalem.

From the curbside, 1121 Park Avenue, Bensalem, looks like a cute little cottage, perhaps something seen on a side street in a Jersey Shore or Cape Cod resort town.

But closer inspection — possible from just taking a few sidesteps into the driveway — reveals a huge footprint of a home, thanks to a 2017 renovation. The work has resulted in a five-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom, three-car garage, salt-water-swimming-pool-in-the-yard opportunity.

.

.

The additions, however, haven’t resulted in a stuffy, unwelcoming space, which is evident from a look at the living room.

.

.

That sense of upscale but comfortable extends to the master bedroom.

.

.

The main home is augmented by an in-law suite, to which just as much attention has been paid to blend amenities with practicality, without sacrificing aesthetics.

.

.

The houseful of people this home accommodates will need some space to recreate, and the plot offers plenty of that. The deck is an ideal summer-entertainment spot; the yard can handle numerous kids’ activities; and the salt-water pool will be a joy to everybody.

.

.

The current owners of 1121 Park Avenue, Bensalem, are asking $889,900 for this big gift in a seemingly small box.
