Lots of history and old time charm are present in this property.

As you continue down the stairs, you will come into the finished daylight basement, which could be used as a nice game room, or lower level family room.

This really is a one of a kind historic home, and its located in the Award Winning West Chester Area School District!! Come enjoy living in a great township with LOW TAXES.
