Imagine yourself sitting in a gently rocking chair on the front porch of this 1890 stone Victorian semi-detached home in picturesque Springtown, one of eastern Pennsylvania's most delightful historic villages. This is where Americana meets The Good Life, from the vintage front door and other classic architectural details, to the new bamboo floors and renovated kitchen and bathrooms. The quintessential "parlor" and formal dining room radiate off the front hallway, with an eat-in kitchen at the rear, complete with granite countertops, pantry closet, newer range, vintage built-in cabinet, and a side porch to the sweet cottage garden that extends back to Silver Creek. The full basement is dry and large, with washer and dryer as well as a convenient door to walk out to the back yard, fenced in for furry friends. Three comfortable bedrooms and a renovated full bath comprise the second floor, and the third floor has both an unfinished attic area (with built-in shelving for storage) as well as a possible fourth bedroom/office/craft room in the finished area with plentiful closets. A short walk will take you to the Springtown Post Office, where neighbors catch up on local news, or to the Springtown Inn where friends gather for a refreshing drink and delicious meal. Just 10 minutes to Hellertown and I-78, 15 minutes to Quakertown, 10 minutes to the Riegelsville bridge to NJ, and 75 minutes to downtown Manhattan, this pastoral location makes for an easy commute to the Lehigh Valley as well as major points east, west, and south. This singular home offers an excursion into yesteryear and the opportunity for a lifestyle rarely encountered these days. Whether a full-time residence or a weekend getaway, 3174 Walnut is just the place to enjoy it!
