Incredible character and charm combine in this delightful, one-of-kind stone single in a lovely East Falls setting. The home was built in 1929 by Lawrence Washington, a descendant of George Washington, and modeled on Washington's headquarters in Valley Forge. It offers the authentic charm of a Pennsylvania country residence. The pretty living room is exceptionally large with a fireplace and built ins. There is a formal dining room and a recently updated kitchen with plenty of cabinets, granite counters and all new stainless appliances. The sunny, comfortable family room, just off the living room, is super appealing with stone walls, slate floor and lots of open-out windows. This room opens to a lovely patio and deep backyard with well tended lawn and plantings. Upstairs there are four bedrooms including the expansive main bedroom, three additional bedrooms including one with an adjoining sun room and one which is reached by backstairs, two full bathrooms, one new and the other updated. There is also a finished basement. The house is in great condition with a recently painted exterior, new front roof(rear roof is just 10 yrs old)and brand new central air. There is a detached oversized one car stone garage. The setting overlooking Vaux St is exquisite offering privacy and lovely views. The location couldn't be more convenient close to trains, the expressway, Kelly Dr and other major arteries. Center city is 15 minutes away. The property is pristine, well priced and the seller is highly motivated!
