One of West Chester's classic homes is now available and located in the N.E. quadrant of town just a half block off Marshall Square Park. The main entrance across a full-length covered porch enters a traditional early 1900's vestibule. The center hall opens to the dining room and front parlor with pocket doors leading to a second sitting room. A very nicely finished powder room is at the back of the hall. The updated kitchen with breakfast bar, two sinks and ample work space leads to the back enclosed sunroom with built in pantry/drop zone, wine storage and French doors to the enclosed yard and flagstone patio. The upper floors are accessed by hardwood staircases with "fainting seats" on the landings. The second floor has 3 bedrooms the laundry closet, and two baths, both nicely updated. Main bedroom has a large walk-in closet. Third floor has 2 bedrooms with Jack and Jill bath also nicely updated. Wood and tile floors throughout. Almost unheard of in town, the home has an immaculate, full, mostly finished basement with a wet bar and refrigerator, office space and flex use space, plus three large storage closets, all utilities, and an outside entrance. Central air, of course!
