Description

Hallmark of history in classic city home on Washington Blvd.! Welcome to a one-of-a-kind home rootedin history and chock full of yesteryear charm. Built in 1838 by George W. Talley II (builders initials anddate appear on plaque on homes north wall) as a wedding gift to his son George W. Talley III, this 186-year-old home is a colonial enthusiasts dream with exceptional character, authentic period elements,good, solid bones and desirable city location. This stately all-stone/traditional black shutters 4-5BRs/3.5baths home is nestled on prime .97 acre of property (w/adj lot), in sought-after Brandywine Hills, N. Wilm. It is magnificently perched on Washington Blvd. and borders Dryden, Walton and Rockwood Rds., effectively enveloping home in picturesque and private setting that is both tree-lined and tranquil and evokes breathtaking curb appeal. Over time, home changed ownership and was lovingly repainted, replastered, updated and more. At one point home was owned by Charles Gooding, a builder, and the man responsible for development of Brandywine Hills and modernization of this home, even extending home by a wing to include new kitchen and 2-car garage that was later converted to an office/flex space. The homes latest owners purchased home in 1970s and have owned the residence for the past 50 years. They have kept its ageless appeal along with updates of gas water heater (2021), HVAC (2020) and updated breakers and hope to find a new steward to take home to the next level. Step inside where homes beloved characteristics of bygone era were carefully preserved. Appreciate original oak hardwood floors, deep 18 inset windows, extra wide baseboards, classic Williamsburg blue trim and more. Sweeping formal LR features sequence of windows that grace front/back walls and gorgeous, wood-burning stone FP anchors room, while coffered ceiling creates vertical dimension and showcases incredible craftsmanship. Amazing backdrop for conversation and cocktails! From LR step out to sunken flagstone-floored screened-in porch that offers premier seating to spectacular plantings, flourishing flowers, and nature at play, while door grants access to open-air terrace tucked along back of home. This indoor/outdoor blend of space offers a never-to-expire invitation to enjoy! Classic DR has rich exposed beams, 2 nd stone FP and handsome build-ins. Adjoining kitchen is beyond with exposed stone wall, Heritage cherry cabinets, garden window, white tile/floral accented countertops, and endless possibilities! Off kitchen is convenient, quaint mud room with floor-to-ceiling paned windows, backyard access and just-right space. Gardners delight, perfect for benches, potted plants and hanging hooks! Ideal flex space, adjacent to kitchen, features full bath and W & D tucked behind dual doors. This sunlit, open space can be office, guest suite, or rec room. Walk-out, partially finished LL features homes 3 rd FP and holds immense promise. The 2 nd and 3 rd levels are home to 4 secondary, spacious, sunlit BRs with sizable square footage and ample natural light, along with hall bath. Sequestered at end of hall, primary BR is sprawling with walk-in closet and accessory closet with period glass knobs and large, private retro bath of lavender/black tile. Nestled in blissfully beautiful and blooming side yard is rustic, historic barn which is part of a 200-year-old milk bank barn from Lancaster, PA that was taken down and put up at 4500 Washington Blvd. by the Amish, then an outer layer, the skin, was built onto it. Appreciate there were no nails used in construction of this pole barn bones and builders used only woodworking techniques such as dovetail joints, and mortise and tenon joinery. Time-stamped treasure! This masterfully built home at 4500 Washington Blvd. exudes timeless beauty, enduring grace, and everlasting allure. It's a unique opportunity to bring your vision, imagination, implement your improvements to a piece of history.
