1053 Swathmore Drive is a wonderful home in the sought-after Mount Paran Parkway neighborhood. This neighborhood is known as a haven for families, thanks to a single entrance and five culdesac streets, where a sense of community pervades and generations of children have roamed freely among the quiet streets.

The current owners of 26 years have made a real showplace out of the home and 1-acre+ yard. In 2004 the original 1955 home was totally rebuilt and expanded by architect Brian Smith.
