Highly sought after beautifully maintained Santaluz townhome in Sycamore Walk with attached two car garage! The high ceiling entrance welcomes you to a living room with hardwood floors and fireplace. The kitchen includes a gas stove and large island with granite countertops. Upstairs are two bedrooms as well as the master bedroom, which has a private balcony with a lovely landscaped view. Outside the front door there is a small private patio space with turf, just steps to the community pool and clubhouse!

Wow! Sometimes we experience things that we just want to rave about immediately to our closest family and friends. I just came back to my office at the Piazza Camino Del Sur shopping center in Verrazzano after stopping next door at Marlene’s Tea & Cakes to grab something to carry me through my morning. Tea and cake for breakfast, you ask? They have more than that. I thoroughly enjoyed my coffee and breakfast sandwich, which by the way, is freshly made in their bakery.
Opened in February, Marlene’s Tea & Cakes is a welcomed treat to the Santaluz neighborhood. As soon as you step inside, you already know it is going to be something distinct and out of the ordinary. From wall to wall and tea to cake, every inch of this elegant escape is reminiscent of a French café and patisserie. Your experience is enveloped in detailed care and ambiance. Afternoon tea and delectable sweets and savories are served at each table on fine china beneath chandeliers. There is also a private cozy dining room that can be reserved for a small party of your favorite people, little or grown-up.
Marlene’s can also bring their exceptional experience to your private catered events, including customized menus to match your own signature custom colors. If you are on the go as I was this morning, Marlene’s sends you off with your fresh brewed beverage and eats warmed up just right. It is the small thoughtful touches that mean the most, and Marlene’s is right here in our community giving back with 5% of all cupcake sales going back to the Willow Grove Educational Foundation.
Marlene Spawton is the proud owner and culinary talent...
