    Description

    THIS home is the Jewel in the Crown of what+GGs been called "America+GGs Most Perfect Town" - West Chester, PA! Walk inside this Faberge egg to see hand-printed wallpapers from Bradbury in San Francisco, and almost 4000 square feet of living space, with a full, unfinished basement with egress. There are beautiful oak floors throughout all the first floor, stairs, and halls. The 5/6 bedrooms are carpeted, brand new in the two largest. This 5/6-bedroom (master bedroom has attached infant nursery and en suite bath), 3 and 1/2 bathrooms, newer-construction home of 20 years, is an historic reproduction of an 1890's house, designed by award-winning architects Archer and Buchanan, famous for Chester County's custom houses. Even better is the enviable location, across from historic Marshall Square Park, a 7-acre arboretum, where General Lafayette marshalled his troops. The Park has a summer concert series, a gazebo, a fine arts sculpted tree, and a new playground. Built as part of the custom-project of 4 homes, also called +G-Marshall Square Park+GG, this was given an anti-sprawl award from Pennsylvania in the year 2002. This Queen-Anne style late Victorian blends in beautifully with all the other houses facing the Square, which date from 1836 through the 1890's and are impeccably maintained. In West Chester's Historic District, 430 North Matlack is within a few short steps of downtown's retail and restaurant district, the library, the Chester Co. Historical Society, the Friends School, and all recreational activities. With these three stories of custom-details inside and out, excellent building materials such as brick and Hardie plank, there are great views, especially from the 3rd floor windows overlooking the Park and ALL of Chester County, so that makes this a most incredible castle for the discerning buyer. The oversized 2-car garage in the back has a second floor for a huge amount of storage. The 2 back patios are custom-made of Vermont multi-colored slate. There are 4 entrances from the back of the home, 1 from the enclosed breezeway, but a glorious wrap-around Trex porch greets you at the front. This Park-facing house has 2 entrances, a welcoming main front, but another from the stunning custom-kitchen with all Amish-made custom cabinetry and granite counters, which is modern with a nod to old times of this home's era. The porch has a metal roof for entertaining outside and observing the Park! From the 2nd floor's hallway, you can enjoy another Trex porch/balcony to watch the stars at night. The huge kitchen of cream cabinetry, long center island, and granite counters has a large breakfast area seating 10 people. The oversized living room/library has a wood fireplace with marble surround, and the Master bed has a gas fireplace. Both have Heatilators which throw back the warmth into these rooms. Nearly every room has crown mouldings which offset the wallpapers. Large laundry room, dining room, foyer, and family room give you an idea of the expanse of this huge, but thoroughly-detailed home, approximately 2000 square feet on the first floor alone. Do NOT miss this opportunity to enjoy the best of all possible worlds - a cozy city neighborhood with the best friends, as well as the trees and Park land you do not have to maintain yourself! Always a favorite on Chester County house tours, this home has been featured 5 times!
