A stately residence of six bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms is available for sale in West Chester.

Originally owned by Philip Sharples, this timeless classic was custom-built with bricks from local Sharples brickyards. The house still boasts many of its original architectural features.

The 0.28-acre property features perfectly manicured grounds, two covered porches, and an outdoor brick patio. Among the exterior features is a roof deck.

Inside, the numerous highlights include original hardwood flooring throughout the first floor, an oversized dining room, butler’s pantry, and a large kitchen. Meanwhile, the living room and family room each offer a cozy fireplace.

The second floor is home to four bedrooms, two of which have access to the roof deck. Two additional private rooms are on the third floor.

There’s also a two-car garage, along with plenty of additional room for parking in the driveway.

The home offers the privacy of a single-family home while being just a short walk from the shopping and dining options in West Chester.
