This double-wide twin bill grafts a striking modern residence onto the rear of an 1800 colonial to splendid effect.
How would you like to live in one of these classic 1800s colonial homes?
Would you like to live in a stylish contemporary home?
If you dream of living in both, then this modern Colonial Society Hill townhouse for sale is the home you have been looking for.
The double width lot on which this home sits contains a vintage 1800 home to the front, onto which a most modern home has been grafted to the rear.
A landscaped entrance courtyard leads from the front door of the front house to the one behind.
From its foyer, a few steps lead to the dining rooms and the kitchen.
The formal dining room features a fireplace, starry chandelier, and corner windows that overlook the front yard.
The kitchen adjoins the dining room, separated from it by a peninsula. She has a full suite of high-end Akso, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances and plenty of storage space in her dressers, pantry and drawers.
Between the kitchen and the back patio is the breakfast room.
The patio behind is separated from the front yard by a door on the side of the house. It is perfectly located for indoor and outdoor dining and entertaining. In the front half of the house you will find a guest bedroom with a fireplace and a full bath.
The second floor contains a spacious main living space that combines a living room and a family room.
The living room has its own fireplace and a wet bar. A low wine rack separates it from a sitting area to the right of the fireplace, and behind the living room is a family room. A shower room, a second bedroom and another full bathroom make up the front part of this floor.
At the top of the sky-lit staircase leading to the third floor is the master suite. Her room has a high cathedral ceiling with tall windows and a full-height fireplace.
In the main bathroom you will find a stone shower and double sinks with the toilet.
The third floor of the front half of the house is not connected to the master suite. Trinity style stairs lead from the second floor to the third floor bedroom opposite. This room currently functions as a home office.
At the back of the basement you will find a media room with a wine cellar next to it. To the front is a home gym incorporating the stone foundations of the front house.
Together, these two halves form a whole with a colonial heart and a modern soul, located near the towers of Society Hill, Head House Square and waterfront attractions of the Delaware River.
And with its ideal location and unique style, this modern Colonial Society Hill townhouse for sale gives you everything you could want in a home, no matter what century you’d like to live in.
