Proudly perched high in scenic Worcester township sits a grand, brick Victorian home which has been graciously restored to it's original splendor and is surrounded by gardens and stone retaining walls. Old world charm is abundant as sunlight streams through the leaded glass and stained glass windows showcasing arched doorways, beautiful built ins and millwork. The detached 2-car garage with unfinished 2nd floor (great possibilities) is tucked into the handsomely groomed landscape with lovely perennials which is a gardener's delight. The main brick walkway leads you up to the impressive 30 paned stained glass door. The newer large wrap around deck and patio provides a retreat from a long day or to enjoy a cup of coffee at sunrise. One of the original residences built at the turn of the last century, this grand Victorian offers a significant amount of original Queen Anne Victorian details, now with modern amenities. Inside, the original oak parquet & inlaid floors are remarkably beautiful. The entry foyer showcases the fantastic detail on the staircase spindles & balusters and the large leaded glass windows. Double doors lead into the large living room with a rounded bay window nook and original fireplace, while pocket doors provide privacy to the library with custom bookcases and a delightful arched gas burning fireplace as the central focal point. The dining room offers original wainscoting, a large bay window and opens into the kitchen. The kitchen has been expanded & renovated to include state of the art appliances, stone countertops, cabinetry with frosted glass, and a full size wine fridge. The first floor is complete with the inviting sunroom addition and updated powder room. The entire 2nd floor was redesigned in the late 90's to double the size of the master suite to include a large closet, sitting area with cathedral ceiling and enormous windows, French door leading to a balcony and back staircase to the kitchen. The laundry was also relocated with an additional cedar closet/storage space. All bathrooms were updated along with the electrical system. The 3rd floor retains many vintage charms, including the recreational room, with an 1890's Shermann Bordeaux billiard table, antique fixtures, and cathedral beamed ceiling; a 3rd bath and additional bedroom or office. Wonderful location, just minutes to historic Skippack Village with quaint shoppes and restaurants.
