Remarks: Envision life in a handsome vintage Colonial! Most unusual about this home is its design, the back portion beginning as a farm house around 1790-1800. This lofty site was used as a lookout for the battle of Germantown & its Market Square! This (otherwise) 1850's home provides three really generous sized Bedrooms and a Guest/Family Room, each with private-access Bathrooms and abundant areas for family & guests -1st floor Library & 2nd Floor Family/Guest Room. Handsome fireplaces grace both the Living Room and the Library. Note the Dining Room's built-in corner cabinet for all your showpiece dining sets and the accents provided by the room's wood wainscotting and crown molding. This large cook's Kitchen has two easy-to-use wall ovens in addition to the full complement of Miele appliances, incredible counter space, and ample storage/display areas. A tucked-away Powder Room and dual access to the covered back Porch completes the 1st Floor. Upstairs are two Bedrooms, both of which have doors opening to Bathrooms. In addition, the Main Bedroom has its own Dressing Room. The expansive Family/Guest Room is a special room. The ceiling was removed and it now features a beamed/vaulted ceiling and a small loft area, This naturally bright room not only has windows on all but one short wall, the evening views looking towards Center City are delightful. This room connects to a Laundry/Clothes closet and the Jack 'n Jill Bathroom it shares with the 2nd Bedroom. The 3rd floor is a Bedroom suiote with a unique & tasteful spacious Bathroom and Bedroom with built-in dresser drawers & closet. The basement features storage aplenty and houses the gas-fired utilities & circuit breaker box. Outside, the back Porch is a great way to spend evenings - trying to imagine that this beautiful setting is in the heart of a City! This house is one that you will make good use of all the rooms. Come visit & discover the many original touches that remain - calling buzzers, transom windows, delicate ballustrades, walk-up skylight and much more!
