Description

Located on an Historic Landmarked Street of brick homes and sidewalks in the heart of Lancaster city, this elegant, 3000 sq. ft. townhouse is an unusual find. The original, 19th century solid wood doors open onto a tiled foyer and a second set of doors. Beyond these doors is a gracious home, characterized by generous spaces, high ceilings and an abundance of natural light that pours through the tall front windows in front and the bay windows in the dining area. The living room, with its 11-foot ceilings and original marble fireplace is inviting and grand. The dining area is located next to a generous, open kitchen with marble countertops and floors and a large island with room for guests to sit and talk. Beyond the kitchen is a sunroom overlooking a private, lush garden. Because of its unique layout, this recently renovated home is comfortable for two people, and, at the same time, it can easily accommodate large groups. An elegant staircase leads up to the second floor and the primary bedroom with high ceilings, a light-filled sitting area, balcony and a large marble bathroom outfitted with a soaking tub surrounded by bay windows and a large, tiled walk-in shower, in addition to double sinks. Down the hall and up two stairs are two additional bedrooms joined by a jack and jill bathroom. Up yet another flight of stairs is a dramatic guest suite. Here a bedroom spans the front of the house, and three large windows look out on green trees and the street of historic homes. In addition, there is a separate large sitting area and a private bath with a claw-footed tub. From the kitchen, a stairway descends to the basement to a brick wine cellar with arched openings. Beyond is a full, dry basement which has an unusually high ceiling, making it a perfect place for a workshop or additional storage. It is accessible by a separate stair to the outside.The neighborhood itself is charming and walkable. A short walk through a quiet neighborhood of original brick homes lined with window boxes leads to two of the best coffee shops in Lancaster. Also within easy walking distance are the original Lancaster market, restaurants, art galleries and shops. The home comes with a rented off-street parking space. In addition, there is a large, rental parking area behind the house.
