    Description

    Charming, well-built reproduction style Cape house on a spectacular, secluded, 1.3-acre lot in West Goshen Township! A peaceful country-like setting yet close to the vibrant civic life of historic downtown West Chester, this unique, fully refurbished 1992 Cape Cod, reproduction style (1860s) home features Greek Revival architectural details, custom millwork and antique hardware with modern amenities. Efficient floor plan with 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, there is 1,760 SF of living space (first and second floors) + 1,144 SF of bright, fully painted, walk-out basement space with heating and A/C for use as a rec room and work shop or gatherings and parties, essentially adding another 1,144 SF of usable space for a total of 2,904 SF. This property is pristine and ready for the vision of its new owners! The main floor offers a beautiful living room with coat closest, custom staircase and two wide openings to the kitchen and dining area, the kitchen features brecciated marble floor and cherry cabinets, the dining room is open to kitchen with fine window views of the rear property, hall bath, ample closet storage and two bedrooms with generously sized closets. The recently completed second floor offers two spacious bedrooms with lighted kneewall and dormer area storage, an updated full bath and walk in closet. Handsome oil finished oak hardwood floors can be found throughout along with custom 6 panel doors and 150-year old, antique, cast iron rim locks on all doors, fitted with white porcelain knobs (matching sets and fully restored). Seller is offering a lifetime guarantee on all antique hardware. Freshly painted both inside and out in period colors that are soothing and fitted to the character of the home. While there is presently a crushed gravel parking area for two cars, the sellers have invested nearly $14,000 on civil, surveying, stormwater infiltration testing, and architectural design fees to develop complete, full-size plans for a large L-shaped addition with garage and new driveway. These will be provided to new owners. The 1.3-acre lot with private backyard and park-like setting is spectacular featuring various mature trees, which include: Dawn Redwood, Purple Beech, White oaks, Mossy cup (blue) oak, Red oak, Willow oak, Sycamore, Tulip poplar and more! The grounds are officially registered with the Wildlife Federation (NWF) as Certified Wildlife Habitat and the sellers spent years planting Sanctuary bird gardens with native plants carefully selected to attract songbirds, including: Eastern bayberry, Sweet spire, Witch hazel, Arrowood viburnum, Dogwood, Franklin tree (rare), Highbush cranberry, Trumpet honeysuckle, various berry bushes, coneflowers and more. This is truly a nature lovers paradise, particularly for bird watchers! There is space for sledding, gardening, campfires and retreating from a stressful world. There is also a large 12+GG by 18+GG shed with Cedar wood siding, eaves and trim with 4 windows that can be opened. It is freshly painted with electric service, lights, and numerous outlets. There is also generator hookup in the west side addition connected to transfer box in basement. Located within 5 to 10 minutes of West Chester, Exton (including train station to Philadelphia), and major highways such as Routes 202, 100, and 30. Award winning West Chester Area School District! In 2013, Money Magazine voted West Goshen as the 10th best place to live in America. Ranked for 6 straight years. This property is for the discriminating buyer looking for a unique place to call home that offers remarkable attention to detail and a nature lovers paradise!
