This iconic West Chester twin was painted by local artist Philip Hill for a WC Public Arts banner that proudly hangs across from the historic post office on Gay Street as a shining example of the beauty of borough architecture. Set above a tree-lined street, it’s a picture-perfect Victorian that offers the best of borough living, with its old-world charm and location just half a block from Everhart Park. You’ll love being in the heart of everything, from the Turk’s Head Music Festival to PorchFest to the Restaurant Festival and so many parades and concerts in between, front and center for all of the fun activities the borough hosts. Walk to town or watch the world go by from your front porch, just a few steps up from the sidewalk. Or head to the pretty fenced-in backyard and patio for a barbeque, with two parking spots conveniently located behind a gate and accessible from Wollerton Alley. Inside, this home is the ideal pallete for your décor, a backdrop of high ceilings, wide moldings, large windows, beautifully-restored pumpkin-pine floors and site-finished white oak floors throughout most of the house. The front living room is a showstopper, with its curved turret windows and a wall of built-ins. This main level also offers a dining room with another windowed turret, roofed in copper, plus a French door to the side walkway, and a bonus room that could function as an office or laid-back family space. There is a spacious kitchen addition with plenty of room for cooking and festive gatherings. It features a butcher-block bar and a built-in banquette, plus a slider to the back yard with views of its lush perennials and trees. A full bath is adjacent to the kitchen. Up a sweeping, curved staircase to the second floor are two grand bedrooms. One is facing the street and featuring the same curved turret as the formal living room. The other has an exposed brick wall, updated full bath “en suite” and a dressing room, which, bright and sunny, could also easily function as an office or nursery. A third bedroom, another updated full bath with exposed brick, and a full laundry room are on the third floor. What’s more, this house has a state-of-the-art boiler, newer hot water heater, and new gutters. And so much more! Don’t miss the opportunity to settle into this spectacular home and enjoy all that borough life has to offer! Listing agent is related to seller and seller is a licensed real estate broker.
