Welcome home to the heart of Rose Valley where life is easy to enjoy. This warm, inviting Rose Valley home was built in 1840 and renovated in 1905 by renowned architect and founder of the Rose Valley Arts & Crafts movement William Lightfoot Price. As soon as you enter, the fine appointments and high ceilings conjure a magical setting ideal for elegant entertaining or enjoying the happy sounds of gathering family and friends. Custom millwork, hardwood floors decorated by key inlay patterns, large fireplaces, and deep windowsills make this magnificent Center Hall Colonial an extraordinary home. The generous Living Room with a large wood burning fireplace is the perfect place to entertain guests while enjoying the crackle of a warming fire, and the formal Dining Room transports you to an era where lively conversations are enjoyed around the table while relishing fine cuisine. The Kitchen has been lovingly updated to beautifully complement the era of the home including a gorgeous custom tile backsplash which echoes the tile accents on the exterior of the house, while providing all the needed modern conveniences including a Dacor gas cooktop, double GE wall ovens, and a brand new built in microwave & dishwasher. The current owners have also added a large addition that marries the grace of the past with the open airy spaces found in homes built today. This Great Room addition has a soaring hip ceiling and is surrounded by walls of windows providing a fabulous more casual space to enjoy the beautiful grounds while still indoors. There are also French doors that lead to a large Trex Deck with stairs down to the expansive level lot, ideal for family and friends to come together to enjoy a game of soccer or a special family affair--and idyllic setting to enjoy year round. The rooms are spacious and the house has an abundance of good closet space. There is a Master Suite which offers a separate Dressing Room/Closet Room and Master Bath with claw foot tub. In all there are 6 Bedrooms and 3.5 Baths. Replacement windows in the basement which has 1,922 square feet of space in addition to the 4,787 sq. ft of living space in the home. Houses as grand and appealing as this one do not become available often! Don't miss your opportunity to see a true gem in the heart of Rose Valley!
