Steep in Boyertown history the home at 103 N. Reading Avenue is truly a perfect example of why Boyertown is "A Special Kind Of Place" Built in the late 1800's the home consists of 2900 sq ft. and has been meticulously maintained with all the originality and features that were installed when the home was originally built. 10 foot ceilings, 19-8 foot windows with original interior shudders, original woodwork, pocket doors, frets, 2 fireplaces surrounded with imported English encaustic tile work. The home was one of the first to have electric/gas lighting in Boyertown and all original fixtures. The Butler pantry is original with ice box, dumb waiter and floor to ceiling cabinetry. The original inter phone is still in partial working order. The bathroom has the original claw foot tub, floral inlay porcelain washbowl, parquet oak flooring and oak wainscoting on the walls. Three large bedrooms are the mainstay of the second floor each one individual in its appearance and features. Windows, lighting, stain-glass and closets abound reminding you that this is a special kind of place in each and every room. The third floor boasts 3 more rooms with yet more windows and stain glass. The highlight of the third floor is a stunning room to the very front of the home. With 12 hours of sunlight this is the perfect art studio, music room, dance studio or private reading room. In all there is 6 rooms that can be bedrooms, office, study, study whatever your desire. While the home is a reflection of days gone by, there have been many upgrades to make this a contemporary place to call home. The kitchen is completely renovated with newer appliances, custom white cabinetry, corian countertops, dishwasher and microwave. Directly off the kitchen is a powder room. The rear servant steps lead to what at one time was the maids quarters and has since been transformed into the laundry room with a full shower right off of the second floor main bathroom. The exterior of the property is also a wonderful expression of the time period from when the home was built. The 4 story tower is the main attraction to the home both inside and out. The tower can be seen from the basement up thru the first, second and third floor of the home topped on the exterior with a Victorian fenerol. The front pillared porch has been rebuilt along with the second floor porch to the rear of the home. The side and rear wrap around porch with removable glass panels are original to the home. This and so much more
