One of the prettiest streets and most sought-after neighborhoods in the borough of West Chester is host to this historic three-story brick twin, the epitome of "Home Sweet Home." Built circa 1900, this beautifully maintained property charms from the curb with a cottage garden and the period aesthetic that carries throughout the home. Note the mansard roof with scalloped shingles, plus dormer windows with decorative eaves and handcrafted porch railing, all attractively painted to highlight the Victorian style. Follow the brick path to the painted porch over the marble doorsill and explore the interior, with original hardwood floors, doors, wood trim, and ornamental grates throughout. The foyer leads to a parlor-style living room where a gas firestove lends even more charm. Next, the dining room invites cozy family meals prepared in the all updated eat-in kitchen where you'll find quartz countertops, a butcher-block island, new cabinets, and a stainless steel downdraft range. Just behind the kitchen you'll find a full bath, laundry, and a mudroom that takes you to the back porch and brick patio complete with arbor, decorative fencing, and established organic perennial gardens featuring carefully selected native plants. Find your two-car garage just off the alley, then when you're ready to return indoors, descend to the full partially finished basement. A separate space here makes a perfect office, but endless possibilities abound on this level for all manner of work and play. Back on the first floor, take note of the high ceilings before heading to the second floor. Here you'll find three lovely bedrooms with plenty of natural light, one with a built-in paneled wardrobe, and a hall bath with the bead-board and claw foot tub & new shower surround to be installed that are appropriate to this home's architecture. From here, take the turned staircase to the third floor to find two more bedrooms, with wide-plank floors and a treetop view. This home's history and beautiful interior create the ideal platform for today's furnishings and modern lifestyle in a desirable, walkable location just moments from parks, schools, and downtown West Chester's restaurants, boutiques, and nightlife. Walk to West Chester University to take in lectures, theatre, concerts and dance. Family-friendly and full of culture, this neighborhood is yours to call home!
