    Welcome to 125 W. Lafayette Street in the heart of the West Chester Borough. You will fall in love with this brick twin from the moment you step onto the covered wide front porch. A copper gutter and rain chain accents add just the right touch! The newer 6-light front door with antique bronze hardware invites you into this 3-story home with a full basement, built in 1900, that has the best of both & charming vintage appeal and modern updates. With three bedrooms, a remodeled kitchen and bathroom, fresh paint throughout, new roof, newer furnace, and water heater - plus more, this home offers tremendous value in one of the most popular school districts. It's close to shopping, dining, parks, the West Chester Public Library, Barclay Park, the Chester County Hospital, public transit, and Route 202 with easy access to the turnpike, I-95, and the Philadelphia airport. Once you step inside you will be wowed by the high ceilings, natural light, gleaming hardwood floors, wide baseboards, exposed brick, and chamfered edges. The current owner has made tasteful updates while maintaining architectural details and fixtures original to the home. The comfortably sized living room features an exposed brick accent wall. It opens to a bright dining room, with a modern updated Edison style chandelier, that has room for formal seating and contains the stairway that leads to the second level and opens to the recently remodeled gourmet kitchen. This sunny, spacious kitchen features custom white cabinets, granite countertops, a subway tile backsplash, and a stainless appliance suite with gas range. The kitchen is open to a deck that was added in 2018 in the large backyard with a privacy fence that was built in 2017. At the top of the stairs on the second level you will find a gorgeous, brand-new bathroom with oversized vanity and cabinet, full-sized shower and tub, storage for linens, upgraded laminate flooring, and a window for natural light. Two spare bedrooms separate the bathroom from the primary bedroom, which is located down the hall at the front of the house. They each have recently refinished, original hardwood floors, large windows, single closets, and overhead lighting. The larger primary bedroom features new wall to wall carpeting and double closets. The 3rd level bonus loft runs from front to back of the house and has windows on 3 sides. It's suitable for use as a study, guest room, yoga studio, playroom, knitting nook, or storage. In the lower level you will find an efficient gas furnace and water heater & both installed in 2015. The newer washer and dryer are also included in the sale! With ample storage, newer systems, fresh updates, thoughtful maintenance, and generous outdoor space for entertaining and recreation & this twin is a win in the West Chester Borough! Masks required.
