Magnificent in Midtown Brandywine! Your beautiful turn of the century townhome is just like you, special inside and out. Just one block from the Brandywine River and Park, the front facade greets you with special architectural touches like the beautiful flemish brick pattern, original shutters, with Gryphon cut-outs, antique shutter dog rosettes, copper flower boxes, and a turned brick stair welcoming you the front door.
Step inside the vestibule and enter into the sun filled living space with 9'ceilings, original wood floors, a custom bookcase and Victorian staircase. The middle room currently serves as a dining room with plenty of space for dinner parties and game nights!

Picture yourself in the modern kitchen with custom shelves made from 3"reclaimed floor joists to hold your cookbook collection and crockery. Food prep at the island for the annual neighborhood chili cook-off and you may just win like the current owner did. (Neighborhood gatherings are held at the community garden down the block.) The bonus back room with adjacent laundry/powder room leads to the back yard where the beautiful brick patio takes center stage surrounded by garden beds full of planters, plants and trees waking up to spring.

On the upper level the spacious primary bedroom with exposed brick walls will melt your heart. In the evenings you can wind down under the soft cove lights, a truly special touch.

The full bath features a classic clawfoot tub & shower.It is also accessible to the bedroom through the walk-in closet. Two additional bedroom spaces allow you the flexibility to sleep, or create a study, studio, or sanctuary.

Perhaps the best for last is the beautiful covered balcony with custom stain glass window accents, ,slate shingle wall and a steel spiral staircase to the backyard!
