On a corner lot, within walking distance to all of the restaurants and shops of downtown West Chester, sits this stately, historic, brick, colonial manor house. The beautiful iron gates lead you into the fenced property, and into history, as you experience the best of the borough. "Magnolia Manor" is three full floors of versatile living space. The front hall is flanked by a large, formal living room and a comfortable den both looking out onto the quiet, tree-lined street. Tall windows, hardwood floors, high ceilings and original moldings add to the charm of these rooms. A formal dining room stretches across the middle of the house with more beautiful moldings, a built in, glass front china cabinet, and a bow window alcove with a coffered ceiling. The kitchen is located in the rear and has a pantry closet and a separate storage/coat closet as well as a step down level that can act as a mud room. There is access to the yard from both the kitchen, off covered stairs, and the dining room from a gracious covered side porch, excellent for morning coffee or evening cocktails. There is also a full bathroom on the main level. The second floor features large bedrooms, an office, a dressing room with laundry facilities and a full bathroom. The surprise on the second floor is the cabana off the office. With windows on two sides, this is one of the many features that makes this home so special. You will spend many happy hours in this unique, three season room overlooking the area. The tour continues on the full, third floor. Currently set up as a separate one bedroom apartment, this space has a large bedroom, fully renovated bathroom, full eat-in kitchen, an exceptionally large storage closet and a beautiful living room with views stretching out above the trees of West Chester. This floor could continue as an income producing unit or it could become additional bedrooms and living space for the rest of the house. History reveals itself again in the unfinished basement which provides an enormous amount of storage. Beyond the landscaped grounds, the carriage house is another jewel in this beautiful crown. This could be converted to a studio apartment or it could be used as a garage. There is also highly coveted, off street parking for multiple vehicles.
