Property Description:

One of the beautiful homes of the 1920s is available on North President Avenue, a boulevard of historic spring blossoms bordering the east end of School Lane Hills. This home is within walking distance to Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster Country Day School, Sacred Heart Elementary, The New School and Wharton Elementary. It is only about a twenty minute walk to the Amtrak station or Penn Medicine, Lancaster General Health. The home sits on close to half an acre and features a two-car garage. This home also features beautiful windows and doors throughout, including three sets of French doors on the first floor and a grand solarium with eight-foot doors and a spectacular vaulted ceiling . Small iron balconies for planting and a leaded glass tower window complete the second floor exterior. Inside one meets elegance at every turn. The expansive living room opens through large archways to the solarium on one side and the large dining room on the other. The flow continues through beautiful original-millwork arched doorways to a modern family room featuring another vaulted ceiling, terracotta heated floors, and French doors to a private patio. The staircase from the first floor to the second is wide and curved, with a beautiful leaded glass window overlooking the large rear lawn. The home features rare American Chestnut floors. The solarium has east and west oversized multi-paned doors. The formal dining room has arched French doors and a brushed brass chandelier. The 23 x 16 living room has a carved-stone mantle and wood burning fireplace. The modern kitchen features heated black granite floors, custom cupboards, Carrara marble counters and backsplash, and Fisher Paykel appliances, including a double-drawer dishwasher, oversized range with dual ovens, large under-counter convection/micro-oven and custom, high-flow exhaust system. Adjacent to the kitchen is an updated wet bar with original cabinetry and nickel hardware. Skylights and yet another vaulted ceiling add brilliance to the kitchen. The second and third floors feature original woodwork, moldings and hardwood floors. Ample closets and two a half baths complete the home. The mechanicals in the home feature modern hot water gas heating and central air conditioning. The furnace and hot water heating system, as well as the floor heating and all components of the air conditioning systems, were installed by the current owner and are high efficiency. The electrical service has been updated to 200 amps. The lawn is large and the backyard is very private. It features beautiful hydrangea, rhododendron, magnolia, peonies, and other lush shrubs and plantings. It is a wonderful home and yard for entertaining and for family gatherings. Finally, the taxes on this property are very reasonable.
