Warm Historical Architecture Marries a Modern Lifestyle - and that makes you happy ever after! This grand dame in Dallastown School District was built over 100 years ago with balloon construction, then lovingly restored and improved over the years by the sellers. The front porch is wide and deep for your relaxation, and the front door is one-of-a-kind leading you into a foyer with inlaid hardwood floors. The rich wood staircase greets you and lets you know you've entered a very special home. The rooms are large and inviting with bumped out bay windows in the living room, dining room and two of the upstairs bedrooms. 15-Light pocket doors separate the living room from the dining room and keep light flowing in this sun-filled home. The kitchen is a custom masterpiece with wood laminate floors, granite countertops, gas cooking, an island, a vaulted ceiling and a custom-built pantry cabinet. There is room here for your casual dining table, too. Off the kitchen is a mud room/drop zone that opens to the side door or to the back yard. This floor has nine-foot ceilings. Upstairs are four roomy bedrooms with carpeting, ceiling fans, 8' ceilings, and beautiful woodwork. The jetted tub, radiant floor heat, beadboard walls and tile in the full bath will make you fall in love. The owners have used the fourth bedroom for a walk-in closet and dressing room, so they installed a built-in ironing board. They are leaving the closet components for you, so you don't have to worry about replacing them. In this room are walkup stairs to the open, unfinished attic. It would make a great upper-level family room or home office! The basement is clean and open with a laundry and full bath with a shower. There is a second set of stairs from the basement up to the mud room for convenience. Now let's talk about the outside! There is an on-ground pool (liner replaced in 2018) with extensive decking, an outdoor kitchen, fencing, three sheds, a garden patch with rich cultivated soil and a grapevine, and landscaping that will make you want to spend the whole summer outside! And the two-story garage has some very special surprises in store. There is both a carport and a garage. The one-car garage space is 20x12 and leads into a finished room that you might use as an office, craft space, or workshop. But wait, there's more! You'll be blown away by the custom wood stair railing leading you up to a huge (29x19) space with a bar and a half bath. There are ethernet cables and a phone line here, along with heat and A/C. The owner used to host a neighborhood billiards night here. You could use it for a fifth bedroom, a very private office, or an entertainment space. There is storage under the garage for your garden tools. Attached to the garage is a 500-gallon rainwater filtration system. This is truly a unique property. The slate roof is in great shape; most windows have either been replaced or rebuilt; the gas boiler has five zones; sellers are leaving five window units, the refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, washer and dryer. Seller is providing an AHS Home Warranty, Shield Plus, coverage for the buyer for one year. 200-amp electrical service. On-ground pools are made for sloped yards. The owners have painstakingly restored all the natural woodwork, done a million renovation projects and loved this home for almost 30 years. They hope you will love it, too!
