    Description

    Fantastic opportunity in the heart of beautiful and historic West Germantown. This diamond in the rough has great bones, preserved architectural details and a grand layout and is just waiting for the right owner. Built in 1925, this 20' wide stone Second Empire twin features a delicate mansard, a breezy front porch, dramatic double entry doors with a transom window and a first floor bay front. Enter to find a distinctive center hall vestibule leading to a majestic climbing staircase with an original curved banister. Hardwood parquet floors, a magnificent plaster medallion, thick crown molding, pocket doors and a decorative marble fireplace surround add elegance to the living room and soaring ceilings and large front and side windows flood the first floor with light. The eat-in kitchen with large island is centrally located on the first floor and has tremendous potential to become the heart of the home and a chef's dream. Beyond the main kitchen is a gracious dining room, summer kitchen and shed with plumbing for a first floor bath. On the second floor, find three spacious bedrooms with hardwood floors, a hall bath and a half bath. The third floor boasts two sun-soaked bedrooms with painted hardwood floors and another full bath with stall shower. The 3,075 square foot lot allows for a huge back and side yard that is perfect for entertaining and dining al fresco after some clearing and landscaping. With a little elbow grease and some sweat equity, this could be a truly grand and elegant residence. Germantown is rich in historic significance to the local and national communities. 222 W Rittenhouse Street is centrally located to several outstanding schools including Germantown Friends, Waldorf, Green Street Friends and Penn Charter. Enjoy a stroll through Vernon Park, a coffee at Ultimo and an evening at Rittenhouse Soundworks, an intimate live music venue across the street. Enjoy healthful and local grocery shopping at nearby Weaver's Way Co-Op and A&N Produce. Just minutes to the Tulpehocken train station and Lincoln Drive, a commute to Center City is a breeze. West Germantown is closely connected to Mt. Airy, the Wissahickon Valley and Fairmount Park. If you are looking for a really special and grand home, rich in history with loads of character and charm, you have found your next project!
