Get ready to fall in love with this breathtaking stone built Victorian. Situated in historic Norristown, this estate is walkable to the Schuylkill River Trail, and offers gorgeous original details, modern updates, and a stunning display inside and out. Built in 1888, this castle boasts amazing features like 11 foot ceilings, original plaster crown molding, exquisitely carved mantles, hardwood floors, 3 sets of solid wood pocket doors, a dramatic turned staircase, glass chandeliers, and amazing architectural elements including a turret with covered balcony and stone archways framing the front porch. Enter through original double doors into the foyer vestibule, where vibrant tile flooring and a transom window with hand-painted lettering add to the vintage charm that makes this property so unique. The foyer sets the tone, with intricate woodworking and high ceilings, and opens up into the living room, den, and dining room. Each room offers a different theme- cherry, walnut, and oak elements including beautifully carved mantles are just a few of the details you're going to love about this home. The updated kitchen offers granite countertops, stainless steel appliances (including a built-in dishwasher and 5-burner stove), a breakfast bar, and a half bathroom which is also accessible from your backyard- convenient for pool parties! There is a secondary staircase in the kitchen, which leads up to your laundry room, where you'll have plenty of space for organizing. The second level features a gorgeous 9-foot custom built-in wardrobe closet, four spacious bedrooms, and two full bathrooms. A half-moon window in the main staircase floods this space with natural light, and creates a rainbow prism effect in the early morning. The master suite is in the front of the home, and offers a full bathroom and lots of sun through the Northeast facing windows. The master suite flows into the neighboring bedroom, and into the other full bathroom on this level- great potential to expand your suite to include a large dressing room! The middle bedroom on this level is shown as a home office, completed by a sunny reading nook. The third level offers additional living space, a large bedroom, 2 balconies, and a half bath. Step out into your sunroom, which opens up into the spacious back yard-- complete with a slate patio and in-ground pool! Relax and enjoy the summer in your own private getaway, surrounded by a splendid perennial garden. On the other side of the pool, you'll find the lovely carriage house, featuring a wide open floor plan with a huge living room, one bedroom, eat-in kitchen, and a full bath with stall shower. This space is perfect for a private guest house, in-law suite, or tenant! The main house has recently been upgraded with new custom built windows (16 original windows were replaced last year with custom Low-E windows, with transferable warranty) a new gas furnace, electric tankless hot water heater, Samsung washing machine, and a Samsung smart lock with touchscreen access panel.
