This gorgeous riverside home on Indian Lane on the banks of the Schuylkill River just north of Norristown in Eagleville is the perfect opportunity to own a great vacation getaway that is close to your home.

A gorgeous riverside contemporary home in Norristown is the perfect opportunity to own a great vacation getaway that is closer to home than anything similarly outfitted in the Poconos. Sandy Smith unlocked the property’s assets in Philadelphia Magazine.

Although the structure was built in 1956, its current owners have done a great job in keeping it updated and contemporary.

They installed vinyl plank flooring in the main living spaces. This design choice is not only easy to maintain, but it also allows the nearby folding doors and windows to remain open without fear of warping the floorboards.

The kitchen was also recently remodeled and now features bar seating around the center island and top-of-the-line appliances.

The living room retains its 1950s style but has now got some extra flair with a curved metal staircase installed in a turret adjacent to it. The primary suite faces the river and offers stunning views.

The home also gives the new owners the option of living on any one of a number of levels, each with distinct views.

The property, sitting aside the picturesque Schulykill River, is listed for $799,000.
