Located in the picturesque and sought after neighborhood of School Lane Hills stands this unique, one-of-a-kind 2 and a half story Italian Renaissance style property with red tile roof. This gracious, grand, and lovely home was built in 1912 but remains a classic today, with fine finishes including hardwood floors and stunning stain glass windows. It features 7 bedrooms, 3 full and 2 half baths, and over 4700 square feet. As you enter this inviting arts and crafts dwelling, you find yourself in the welcoming and generous foyer with wide wooden staircase with walk through storage closets on both sides, hardwood floors, and dental molding on the walls and ceiling. Just off the foyer is the lovely living room with wood burning fireplace and coffered damming ceiling that overlooks the front lawn. A sun porch with French doors and lots of natural light is the ideal place to read a book or to drink morning coffee. The eat-in kitchen overlooks the magnificent back yard; plus has a separate stairwell up to the 2nd floor. For more formal occasions is the spacious formal dining room complete with exposed beams and hardwood flooring. Also on the main floor is: a sitting room with bow window and built-in storage that could double as a cozy room to relax and read a book, a powder room adjacent the kitchen, and you can find wooden columns, open archways, and dental molding throughout. The foyer staircase branches off into 2 separate staircases that lead up to the 2nd level which houses multiple bedrooms including the owner's suite. Each bedroom is spacious, has hardwood floors, and closets. At the end of the hall is a door that leads out to the balcony overlooking the backyard. Another wooden staircase leads up to the 3rd floor that hosts 2 bedrooms, a full bath, a generous walk-in cedar closet, and an oversized room that could be used as an 8th bedroom or double as a playroom or game room. The lower level is partially finished and contains multiple utility rooms, as well as the laundry area, a rec room with bar, counter with gas stove, and a closet. This room could be converted into an entertainment area with pool table, dart board, and would be a great space for gathering or a hangout area for guests. Also, the lower level areas could be used as storage, a hobby room, or even a workshop. The exterior is pristine with its large front yard, covered front porch, and a walkway to the rear yard. At the rear of the property is a large and quiet yard for relaxing, patio for entertaining, and a detached 2-car garage with driveway for ample parking. This property has historic value with lots of potential and is just waiting to be occupied; adding the next chapter of its history. This property is serene at night and is convenient and close to downtown Lancaster, Franklin and Marshall College, and Lancaster Country Day. This property is a timeless collection in the School Lane Hills neighborhood and is a hidden gem of Lancaster City history. Schedule a showing today!
