    Description

    This is your chance to own one of the most unique properties in the area. This charming home with separate guest house in the borough features a stately brick and masonry exterior with cedar shake roof peeks out over the walled perimeter, beautifully adorned by wrought iron accoutrements and built-in lighting. This property is an architect's delight, as the charm of yesteryear continues inside. The gorgeous custom kitchen features an intricate tile floor, glistening granite countertops, and dark cherry cabinetry with elaborate built-ins providing an astronomical amount of cupboard and storage space. Stained glass inlays and built-in wine racks perfectly complete the ensemble. The formal dining room features soaring 10-foot ceilings with tall windows, and the shadow-boxed wainscoting perfectly accompanies the custom built-ins throughout the room. Beautiful glass double doors open to a stunning marble parlor, with lavish stained glass windows greeting you as you enter. The living room features deep marble window sills and more custom stained glass throughout. The second floor features three ample-sized bedrooms, each with double closets. A master bedroom suite comprises the third floor, featuring a large tile master bathroom! The basement is completely finished with an outside entrance and kitchenette, providing even more living space and opportunities to entertain. The basement was previously utilized as a children's daycare, and can still be used as such if the new owner would like! Choose your perfect comfort level in each area with efficient ductless air conditioning units throughout the home! Back onto the main floor, you'll find the step-down family room featuring skylights and exposed beams with well-placed track lighting and a wall of illuminated stain glass windows lovingly recovered from a former church. A brick accent wall and cozy wood or coal burning fireplace stove perfectly completes the setting. Double doors lead to the rear covered deck with custom hardscaping complete with brick pathways that lead to your very own courtyard. As you enter, you'll need to remind yourself that you are not in a European villa! Beautifully accented by mature, high-end, plush landscaping and ivy along the walls, you'll bask in beauty next to the awesome in-ground pool, complete with sliding board and golf putting green area. Custom landscape lighting perfectly accents and lights up the courtyard so the fun can continue after dark. Adjacent to the courtyard is the detached guest house, which is an ENTIRE SECOND HOUSE on the same property! Featuring a large master bedroom, full hall bath, a living room, bonus room, large eat-in kitchen and upstairs storage, this could perfectly serve as in-law quarters, guest house, or offers rental potential! The large living room provides plenty of living space, and the huge bonus room provides plenty of storage and multi-purpose options! The second floor features a small bonus room with a clipped ceiling, perfect for a play area. Unfinished storage areas provide plenty of storage opportunities as well. When you~re not relaxing by the pool, enjoy the efficient central air conditioning throughout the guest house! There is plenty of parking at this prime in-town location with a large front driveway with covered carport, allowing for 4+ cars as well as a back-alley driveway providing an additional 3+ spaces! This home is a rare gem that you truly must see to believe - historic charm with all the modern functionality for modern-day living tucked away in popular Downingtown. Located in the perfect location in Downingtown - across from East Ward elementary, walk to restaurants, walk to parks, and take advantage of everything Downingtown Boro has to offer. Award winning Downingtown Schools and STEM Academy!
