Property Description

There is a special charm that can be found along E Lafayette St in West Chester Boro, with brick sidewalks, tree-lined streets, and 1800’s architecture, all situated just steps away from Marshall Square Park. At 117 E Lafayette St, that historic charm blends with today’s modern conveniences. This compelling Italianate brick twin has 1-½ car driveway parking plus non-permitted on-street parking, central air, a full bathroom on the 1st floor, an enormous 2nd floor bathroom, an unfinished basement (storage, storage storage!) and it has the most delightful fenced backyard. But, above and beyond those convenient features, is the unnamed x-factor that this home has in spades. Original hardwood flooring, a front bay window, original plantation shutters, built-in storage and library shelving, skylights, niches, wainscoting… There is a surprising and unique detail to be discovered in every room. Just off the kitchen, you’ll find the most inviting breakfast nook with built-in window seats with storage, and windows on 2 sides plus a skylight. This space is filled with natural light, and it absolutely beckons to the avid reader or to the green thumb indoor gardener. Upstairs there is an incredibly spacious primary bedroom, an incredibly spacious full bathroom, and another wonderful bedroom that would also make a great space to set up a home office. The 3rd floor features 2 more spacious bedrooms, both with high ceilings, ceiling fans, and the continued theme of character and natural light. But there’s more… 117 E Lafayette St also enjoys an idyllic fenced backyard with a brick patio, multiple seating areas, landscape beds, a storage shed, and a lawn for Fido to romp and play. This is a private and serene backyard oasis right in the heart of West Chester Boro. Walk to all your favorites – the Grower’s Market, the library, Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center, and the boro’s eclectic shopping and dining scene. This is a wonderful opportunity to own a charismatic home on one of the most sought-after blocks in West Chester.
