Description

This house has been lovingly taken care of & restored over 22 years w/this owner. The raised main level accessed by steel front steps provides the house w/extra privacy. The house features the original, restored hardwood floors. The seller also restored the chestnut & old growth Southern pine trim in the house back to its original unpainted beauty. The newel post on the staircase was reclaimed from a mansion in Philadelphia. The light globe fixtures in the foyer & hallway half bath came from a drug store that is over 100 years old. Entering the living room, you see the original, gorgeous exposed-brick wall. LED or incandescent recessed lights on dimmers highlight the gas fireplace in the raised brick hearth. Dimmers have been added throughout the house that allows you to tailor the light to your mood. The four ceiling fans are of mid-century design & bring a nice mix of new with the old. There is plenty of light & room for entertaining your friends & family. The separate dining room features a gorgeous brick wall & George Nelson mid-century ceiling bubble lamp. The kitchen has been completely renovated w/quartz countertops, white cabinets, Italian gas stove, German Liebherr refrigerator & beautifully restored pine hardwood floors. While the kitchen is new & modern, it also features original & period details like the exposed brick chimney & two hanging kitchen lights above the island which are solid brass from a turn-of-the-century railroad station. The house features high ceilings w/main level at 95 and upper level at 811.The large back yard is fully enclosed w/a horizontal wood fence & features both a deck & separate fire pit area.

The backyard has extensive perineal landscaping, a peach tree (which produced over one hundred peaches in 2023), a blackberry bush & subtle exterior lighting. There is also an outdoor dog wash station for your furry friends! The 8 commercial garage door provides secure off-street parking.
