Description

Rare opportunity to own this Pristine Historic home situated in the Callowhill Historic District. This all brick home comes with 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and is an end unit that has been lovingly cared for. Originally deeded to William Penn's son, the original home, where the kitchen is located, was built in 1795 with the addition coming in 1810! As you enter the foyer, you will immediately notice all of the architectural details this home has to offer. There are stunning hardwood floors throughout the home, which have been kept in pristine condition. The formal living room has a beautiful fireplace with a very detailed mantle and is flanked with built-in cabinetry. The formal dining room is adorned with crown molding and chair rail and looks over the terrace and large garden. Cooking will be a delight in the updated kitchen with custom cabinets, a center island with seating, farmhouse sink, tile backsplash, recessed lighting, a Viking gas cooktop range, refrigerator, built-in microwave, bamboo flooring and a gorgeous beamed ceiling. There is also access to the large, private courtyard. The second level greets you with three bedrooms, one with built-in bookshelves, and another with a fireplace and built-in cabinetry. There is a full, updated bath with a double vanity and lovely glass shower with tile. The third floor holds the primary bedroom with a beautiful cathedral, beamed ceiling, built-ins and its own full, updated bath. Storage is not an issue as there is plenty of closets and an exterior shed and full basement. The yard is completely fenced for tons of privacy and has a brick patio and lots of trees and beautiful perennial flowers. The home comes with 10 ft. ceilings, central air, some replacement windows and tons of history.
