    Description

    As you walk up to the front door, admire the handsome 1860+GGs architecture. Enter the foyer, an early version of a storm door, then a large living room with hardwood floors and an original fireplace conveniently converted to gas welcomes you home. Glimpse views of the shady and cool marble floored terrace, perfect for al fresco dining, through the large rear window. A reading nook with custom bookshelves and cabinets for extra storage, and garden views of the hanging flowers beckons. Next you+GGll find a full sized dining room overlooking the terrace with a deep sill bow window. Enter a hand-made swinging door into a fully equipped kitchen with an induction range and oven which converts to a double oven, and lovely views to keep the cook happy. Finally, a bonus room offers a powder room, ample coat closets, and a sweet spot for a desk or the children to play. The 2nd floor offers a large, sunny bedroom in the front with original paneling and decorative fireplace, multiple closets and an en suite bathroom complete this inviting room. The rear room opens up to a cathedral ceiling with exposed brick, plus a sumptuous bath, full size stack laundry closet, and a french door onto another deck, a perfect secluded spot for your morning coffee. Surrounded by planters, and a grape vine to make your own wine, it is truly an oasis. Then walk up to the 3rd floor past a charming potting area to yet another ensuite bedroom with cathedral ceilings and dormer windows, plus a secret space just for kids...or storage. This bedroom has a new, mini-split air conditioner so it is always comfortable in the heat of the summer, Finally, those who love roof decks will be well satisfied when they ascend through the magical cut glass windowed cupola to the very top of this historic home. From this deck, you can see North, South, East and West from the Delaware River to Fireworks and everything in between. The Seller, who loves climbing and caving, says it is the reason he wanted this home in the first place. And its close proximity to Head House Square (with a stellar weekend farmer+GGs market) and the Italian Market makes it a cook+GGs paradise. Features include a state-of-the-art heating system, 2 zones of air conditioning, hardwood floors throughout, many original details, and a massive amount of character all on a special quiet leafy Queen Village block in the Meredith Catchment.
