409 W Walnut Street, Lancaster, PA 17603

A rare opportunity to own a home and carriage house in one of Lancaster City’s exclusive and desired locations, Chestnut Hill. Upon arrival, you will immediately notice and feel the elegance of this home and its neighborhood with unique red brick sidewalks. This well-maintained, end of row, 3-story home with carriage house (2-car garage plus living space) has been updated with modern conveniences (systems, kitchen and bathrooms) yet still maintains original architectural details (exposed brick, ceiling medallion, stained glass transom, built-ins, pocket doors and more). Enter through the wrought iron gate into your own city sanctuary. Step into the entryway vestibule with two sets of double doors with arched transoms above to the foyer with double doors to the living room. The spacious first floor with beautiful original pine floors highlight high ceilings, a large living room, a formal dining room, a remodeled kitchen (2014) with tall, cherry cabinetry, under cabinet lighting, subway tile backsplash, granite countertops, SS appliances, Bosch gas oven/range and 13′ tile floor. The window over the sink provides a view of the covered patio and private courtyard. Passing the convenient powder room with built-in, the impressive staircase of the foyer leads to the second floor (also pine floors) with two full bathrooms and three very versatile rooms to enjoy. Three bedrooms or two spacious suites are your choice: one with multiple closets and pocket doors to a office/nursery or a dressing/sitting room (or 3rd bedroom) with a connecting full modern bathroom with tile floor, walk-in shower and granite vanity. Another spacious suite has it’s own modern bathroom with tile floor, tub/shower and granite vanity plus a convenient laundry addition with custom cabinetry and a granite folding center plus access to the 2nd story balcony overlooking the courtyard. The third floor offers even more versatility, as another bedroom with closet or a wonderful opportunity for a home office, spacious studio, or study. The private, secure courtyard offers a pleasant oasis between the home and carriage house. Take your enjoyment outdoors to extensive hardscaping of red brick, slate and a covered patio (skylight in roof). The carriage house, a detached 2-car garage with a finished 2nd floor is perfect as guest quarters, an office or home business complete with it’s own half bath. The second story is already finished with skylights, carpeting, baseboard heat and a/c and has room to add a stall shower, leading to even more possibilities. In addition to interior parking for 2, there is off-street parking for additional vehicle(s) on the driveway outside of the double-wide garage door, extra storage space inside plus a utility sink (ready to be connected to existing plumbing). With tall, vinyl fencing on both sides, privacy and safety are yours with this city oasis underneath Edison string lights. Cement retaining walls hold raised landscape beds showcasing large hydrangea, crepe myrtle and red maple trees. A short walk to Central Market, fine restaurants, art museums, schools, and unique shops. This is a prime city location that surprises you with the feeling of a secluded neighborhood retreat. Rarely does a home with so much value and versatility come on the market in this highly sought after neighborhood. Converted to gas heat (2014), central a/c (2018), newer water heater and whole house humidifier. Call for more details and your private showing today.
