Set across from historic Marshall Square Park in West Chester, a stunning Queen Anne-style Victorian with five bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms is ready to enchant its next owners.

.

.

Designed in 2001 as a historic reproduction of an 1890s house by award-winning architects Archer and Buchanan, the home blends in beautifully with the mostly-brick, 19th-century residences facing the Square.

The three-story home’s nearly 4,000 square feet of living space are colorful and joyful, boasting hand-printed wallpapers from Bradbury in San Francisco, beautiful oak floors, crown moldings, and 19th-century light fixtures, among many other unique details.

The home also offers great views, particularly from the third floor that overlooks the park.

Every room in this magnificent abode has something special, including the stunning custom kitchen with Amish cabinetry, granite counters, and its long island. The oversized living room/library features a cozy wood fireplace with marble surround, while the home office has walls of windows that provide views of the Square.

The carpeted primary bedroom with a nursery that can be converted into a sunroom and an opulently outfitted bathroom is set on the second level.

Additionally, there are several outdoor spaces that are ideal for entertaining, including two paved patios and a wrap-around Trex porch with a metal roof.

.

.

The home’s location near Marshall Square Park, an arboretum where General Lafayette marshaled his troops, only adds to its allure and puts the house just a short and pleasant walk away from West Chester’s lively downtown.

Read and see more of this house at 430 North Matlack Street, listed for $1,295,000 by Keller Williams West Chester, or contact realtor Mike Ciunci at 610-256-1609 to request a showing.
