Property Description

This gorgeous home in downtown Lancaster offers the ideal blend of contemporary, urban living with stunning, old-style architecture. Zoned for both commercial and residential use, this can be a family home or business site- or both! The curb appeal begins with freshly painted façade, wrought iron railings wrapping the front porch, oak doors with inlaid glass, and lovely pendant lights. Once you step from the porch into the living room, you are enveloped in an oasis of cool colors, ambient lighting, lofted ceilings, and warm hardwood floors. Host friends for a glass of wine by the fire or welcome clients into an inviting seating area. The living room is open and spacious and perfect for gathering. Up a few stairs and you are in the expansive dining room and kitchen. Gone are the days of a crowded kitchen. The high ceilings, pocket lights, and windows make this space feel open and alluring. Sip your morning coffee at the breakfast bar or watch your kids do their homework while you cook supper - there is space for everyone. With sprawling granite countertops, beautiful tile backsplash and floor, eye-catching cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and elegant lighting, this space is truly the heartbeat of the home. Also on the first floor are a full bathroom, an additional half-bath, as well a convenient laundry area. Walk up the stairs to the 2nd floor and discover 2 primary bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, as well as 2 guest bedrooms and another full bath. The primary bathrooms are your personal spa escape, with beautiful tile, soft lighting, high ceilings, and plenty of storage space. Each bedroom has the elaborate woodwork and unique touches of an early 20th century house, but with a cool contemporary feel - tall windows, floods of light and space, and privacy for you, your children, or your guests. Also, in the first primary bedroom, a door leads out to a private balcony. With the addition of gauzy curtains, lights, and greenery, it is your exclusive escape from the world. Watch the sun set over the city, mediate to the sounds of mourning doves, or welcome the day with a cuppa java and your favorite podcast. It is a secret retreat you will never tire of. This property is zoned as "mixed use", so make it a family home or business location or both. It will meet whatever needs you have. With central air and heat, off-street parking, modern upgrades, and central location, this is a Lancaster property worth seeing.
