Property Description

A charming 1878 Victorian three-story row house in what many consider the best block in Lancaster. Located in the heart of Chestnut Hill District, it's a short walk to Lancaster's Central Market and the vibrant downtown area. It has a lovely, wide front porch and is one of the few properties in the city with a front yard. Starting at the top, it features an entire third floor Master Bedroom ensuite, complete with coffee/ wine area, linear gas fireplace, walk thru closet, double trough sink, heated tiled bathroom floor, separate toilet closet and laundry, plus a glass shower. Second floor has two bedrooms, a full bath with tiled floor, and library/ home office. The library/office features a rolling ladder and two light-filled architectural skylights. Off of the office is a lovely side balcony, and there is also a quaint back stairway, with its uniquely handcrafted metal hand rail. The first floor front of the house has an entrance vestibule leading to a large open living room with parquet wood floor. Next on the ground floor is the formal dining room, which can seat 8-10 people for a dinner party. The large kitchen features all stainless-steel appliances, a center island with sink and a counter for dining. A small mudroom area located next to a half bath and a first floor laundry room (yes, a second laundry room), opens up to a family room with vaulted ceiling, and working gas fireplace. The large windows overlook a lovely garden with its central fountain and a raised patio area. The side yard is wide, with dry-laid brick; a perfect place for outdoor dinners cooked on the built-in gas grill. The basement is semi-finished and has a wine area, a shop area, and exercise room, with plenty of space for storage. The home has original wood floors throughout, the two full bathrooms are tiled. The cooking and heating fuel is gas. There is a rubber roof on the 2nd and 3rd floor. The third floor is accessible via an exterior mounted steel ladder. There is central air conditioning throughout, and a whole house fan.
