Impressive 6 BR, 3.5 bath brick home in the heart of Newtown Boro mere steps away from the interesting shops and fine dining the Boro has to offer. Experience the grandeur of this historical gem built in 1861 by the renowned builder, Garrett B. Girton, known as "The man who built Newtown". The welcoming covered front porch with detailed woodwork and trim leads you into the stately living room featuring 9.5 foot ceilings, 10" baseboard molding, wood floors, crown molding, and a brick fireplace with raised hearth and custom mantle. The staircase features carved wood balusters and railings, along with unique newel posts. The expansive formal dining room offers wood floors, and an arched bump out bay window with a glass door leading to the comfortable side patio. The medallion and the detailed cornices are all plaster and original to the home, as well as the numerous stain glass panels throughout the 3 floors. The large eat in kitchen has wood cabinetry, newer appliances, gas cooking, an L shaped island and a generous eating area. The 2nd floor has 9' ceilings, 9" baseboard molding, and wood floors throughout. One of the bedrooms features an archway to a bump out bay window and a double closet. A 2nd bedroom is quite large, and has 2 separate wall closets. The bedrooms are all well lit and enjoy loads of natural light. The 3rd floor has a kitchen and full bath, in addition to two ample sized bedrooms. This level could be a possible Au pair or guest suite. The basement is finished with a kitchen, a full bath, and 2 finished areas. The laundry and mechanical rooms are also in the basement. There is a wonderful barn in the rear yard that is quite spacious and was originally the carriage home and stables. It has stairs leading to the open 26' x 20' second floor. Potential uses for this barn and loft area are endless. This home is across the street from the Newtown Library and feet away from "downtown" Newtown Boro. Enjoy chatting with neighbors from the front or side porch or take a stroll and enjoy a meal at one of the many fine dining establishments the Boro has to offer. This wonderful slice of Boro history is a must see home.
