Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

Very desirable location in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of West Lancaster. This home has had tons of character since it was built in 1890 and the recent remodeling had retained that character while bringing the home up to par with today’s amenities. Some of those improvements include incredible custom kitchen with granite counters, built-ins, and Cafe appliances by GE. When you enter this home, you are met with a spacious, open floor plan with high ceilings, and gorgeous refinished hardwood floors! The Living and Dining areas flow nicely into the kitchen and through to the mudroom/half bath and access to the private back yard and patio. The second floor contains the ensuite Primary Bedroom and Bath. This bedroom features a lovely sitting area/nook and hardwood and is bright and sunny! The well appointed Primary Bath has marble floors, custom vanity, huge glass enclosed shower and access to a large walk-in closet. Continuing down the hallway on this floor, you will pass the laundry closet and then into the front bedroom. On the third floor, there’s a landing area with enough room for an office or sitting room and is central to the two bedrooms and full bath up here. There’s plenty of room for entertaining in the private backyard, completely fenced and perfect for a warm Summer get together! Or hang out on the lovely front porch to enjoy the character of this neighborhood! !!Seller is currently leasing a parking space next door. Long term lease is available for buyer!!
