A Corner Villa in Phoenixville for $399K
This amazing renovation sits on a prime corner lot just a few blocks from downtown Phoenixville. This home's design gives just about every bedroom a corner view of its own too.
Having a corner bedroom doesn’t confer the status that having a corner office has on its occupant, but if you’re living in a house on a corner, it is nice to be able to have a view of the whole corner.
The architect who designed this handsome century-old (or older) Italianate twin home just south of downtown Phoenixville apparently thought that way, for its design gives every one of its six bedrooms a corner view.
It also gives the home a distinctive main floor with attractive and comfortable spaces for relaxing, dining and entertaining.
The front entrance leads to a newly tiled vestibule that opens into the living room, and the wraparound porch that leads to that entrance surrounds the family room in front of it.
The completely upgraded kitchen is a 21st-century throwback, as both the refrigerator and range should indicate. That range, by the way, is something completely new and different: a classic AGA Legacy range with an induction cooktop. If you love to cook, you will want to buy this home just for its kitchen, which you won’t find in any other home at this price point.
Its eclectic Italianate architecture means no two bedrooms are exactly alike. Each has its own personality and distinctive windows.
The guts of this home have also been rebuilt to meet the demands of modern life with all-new wiring, plumbing and central air conditioning. Ceiling fans in the family room, kitchen and three of the bedrooms help your climate controls work more efficiently.
Then there’s its location. You’re just four blocks away from Phoenixville’s revived Main Street, which is chock-full of eateries and attractions. Chief among the latter, of course, is the historic Colonial Theater, now part of an expanded performing arts center incorporating the former bank next door. When you run out of the theater screaming during its annual showing of the cult-fave horror film “The Blob,” you can just keep running right on home if you want.
