Description for 636 S Walnut Street West Chester, PA 19382
An ode to a charming circa 1899 Victorian Borough home, from a classic perspective. Old house enthusiasts, take note! This wonderfully preserved example of the Eastlake style was formerly owned by Francis Harvey Green, one of the founders of the YMCA and the namesake of the West Chester University library. This home is a treasure trove of period details and originality! Inside it boasts classic millwork, hardwood floors, intricate fretwork details, and a formal entry hall with the original staircase and stained glass windows. A double mantled, wood burning fireplace is the feature point in the parlor. Original pocket doors open onto a banquet sized formal dining room. An updated kitchen is well stocked with plenty of cabinet space, granite countertops, tile backsplash, recessed lighting, upgraded stainless appliances and a breakfast bar that opens onto a wonderful sun-drenched family room addition that incorporates several architectural elements from the original home to include a serpentine stone hearth and wood beam mantel over the gas, air vented fire place with amber onyx surround. The custom ash wood floors with walnut inlay tie it all together. French doors give access to the fenced-in rear yard and 3 car garage with storage loft. There is also a large walk-in pantry, a convenient laundry room and a powder room on the main floor.Upstairs, the master suite features an impressive master bath with custom built double vanity, marble flooring and a standing shower with marble surround, double shower head and a frameless glass door. Two secondary bedrooms with hall bath and a den complete the second floor. The third floor is home to the fourth and fifth bedrooms. The detailed architectural work on the exterior features an original Juliet balcony, a rocking chair front porch, fretwork, posts with turnings, turrets and more. The house has 3 zoned A/C, 2 zoned gas heating, and an abundance of storage space throughout, If you just can't resist big old Victorian houses, especially in quintessential small towns like West Chester, this could be it. Awaiting your loving restorations and vision, the Francis Harvey Green house only gets better with time. We've done some virtual redecorating for you - take a look!
