Property Description

Exceedingly rare opportunity to own a prestigious historic home in the premier area of the Borough of Kennett Square. Surrounded by seasonal perennial gardens providing a habitat for birds and butterflies, this Queen Ann style home was built for William W. Polk in 1888, and was described as one of the “most commodious and fashionable” of its time. The same owners have lived here since 1983 and have meticulously updated it while keeping its original charm. Imagine yourself enjoying your favorite beverage while relaxing on the covered front porch and watching the world go by; or carrying that same beverage out to the covered patio to rest while enjoying views of the specimen plantings. This is a unique home with multiple potential uses of the various rooms. Entering into the welcoming hallway, on the left you will find the study/library/ TV room with many built-in shelves and cupboards, and a corner fireplace for taking off the Fall chill. Imagine entertaining or just hanging out in the 1950’s 30X19 addition which can be a formal living room, or huge family room. The winter months will be more cheerful with a fire in the large fireplace. Picture celebrating Holiday meals in the formal dining room. The kitchen has been updated in 2017 with a stainless steel smooth top range and microwave; and a 2021 Miele stainless steel refrigerator and new lighting. The delightful 1988 addition of a very bright breakfast room/conservatory/laundry area is accessed from the formal living room or the kitchen. The second floor may be reached either from the front hall or the back stairs in the kitchen. The spacious main bedroom features multiple closets and an ensuite bath that was totally renovated with two vanities and a large shower with invisible glass doors. An office with multiple built-ins is at the top of the stairs. If life has found you in need of another office, the second bedroom, also with built-ins, may be perfect to suit your situation. Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a 2021 updated hall bath with custom vanity, quartz top, and glass shower door. All of the floors on the first and second levels are various kinds of wood. Bedrooms number 4 and 5 are on the 3rd floor and share a hall bath with pedestal sink and tub/shower. This area could also be an entire suite for guests or extended family. There is a cute shed in the back yard that would make an excellent playhouse, or garden storage space. The two-car garage is at the end of a long driveway and there is also loads of street parking. there is Public water and sewer. Seller is updating seller's disclosure and it will be available soon.
