About 314 N Lawrence St

Welcome to classic Federal Period elegance in Old City, with all updated mechanical systems ! Step into history at this impeccable row, a paragon of period craftsmanship and charm. Set on a quiet side street with brick sidewalks and marble stoops, just steps from a small neighborhood park - you will be captured even before you enter this gem. As you pas the sturdy oak door, you will be delighted by a front room awash in natural light from its large window and transom door window. It is immediately apparent *this is the real deal, a home is for the discerning folks who appreciates hand wrought cabinetry, *thick* random width chestnut and heart pine flooring, crown and chair rail millwork - centuries old craftsmanship that just can't be found or recreated today. Sellers use the front room as an informal dining room / quiet room. Continue through to a large living room, that is presently the media room. Note again the exquisite old millwork, fireplaces and floors. George Washington may not have slept here... but he could have ! The kitchen is fully updated with gourmet level stainless appliances, and level 3 granite, and opens by sliders to a very spacious and private fenced brick courtyard. There's plenty of room to grill, chill, and host a sizable gathering here and its all in perfect shape. Upstairs on the second floor you'll find a large master bedroom that looks out over Lawrence street, itself also graced with fireplace and period millwork. A second bedroom, used as an office and nursery watches over the rear courtyard. Both are served by a modern bathroom as elegantly appointed as the kitchen. Everything is new, neat and clean as a whistle. One floor above is another length of the house bedroom with its own ensuite bath. It's been the sellers bedroom, a guestroom for out of town visitors, office and a child's room too ! Heading to the basement you will see modern utilities - furnace 2017, air conditioner 2017, modern romex wiring, replaced pvc waste and a pressure tank to provide *excellent* water pressure even on the third floor. Note the bilco doors to the street outside, vast storage capacity, and the incredibly cool old walk-in fireplace that would once have been where you cook. You will see a basement that is dry as a bone. its a great workout or hobby place and is tall enough to finish if you really wanted that. This beauty is set in a superb neighborhood a few blocks away to literally anything, but j u s t off the beaten path for to offer peace and tranquility. Parking is actually very easy because the community park removes competition for parking. - so much so the sellers gave up their other residents reserved garage years ago. This home is for those who appreciate the genuine and the historic, and love an urbane lifestyle with the quiet this setting allows.Condos abound in this part of town, and they are fine too... but full city row that yours alone is rare and precious thing. Visit this amazing jewel and you will agree.
