    Description

    Welcome to the Barnard-Philips House in the borough of Kennett Square. Made of double-brick construction, with an Italianate cornice and slate Mansard roof, the chamfered posts on the large front porch are a rare touch from the past. The current owners have lovingly and meticulously maintained and updated this special home over the past 22 years. The front porch is a wonderful place to enjoy the parades and special events of this historic town. The first floor living room is a perfect large space for entertaining with original yellow pine hardwood floors, crown molding and built-ins. The dining room is spacious and offers original yellow pine hardwood floors, crown molding, chair rail and original corner built-in, with a side door onto the side porch. The kitchen was completely renovated in 2009 with exposed brick wall, new soft-close, and pull-out drawer cabinets, electric radiant floor heating, newer (2019) dual-fuel gas stove/electric oven, ceiling fan, new windows, recessed lighting in ceiling and under cabinets. And the fabulous farmhouse Kohler sink makes this kitchen complete with charm and elegance. There is a side porch and a patio to enjoy outdoor dining rain or shine. A powder room was added to the first floor as well. The fenced back yard is spacious, private, and level for playing games and relaxing under the tree that provides shade and beauty. The shed is large and has 30 amp electric service for all kinds of projects and motion-lighting for the 2-car off-street parking driveway that completes the back yard area. The second floor offers 2 bathrooms complete with many updates including heated tile floors, adding warmth and comfort in the winter. The back bathroom is freshly painted with the original claw-foot tub, farmhouse sink, high-end comfort-height toilet, and newer windows. The front bathroom has been updated with tile shower and flooring with electric radiant heated floors. The laundry room is large offering plenty of storage and is conveniently located off the master bedroom with a built-in ironing board, large closet, heated tile floors, and a new window. There is a second-floor porch that has Philippine Mahogany decking and the railings have been painted in 2019. The second bedroom on this floor is large and bright. Entering the full-height third floor you will find 2 additional bedrooms with 6 newer windows, Bruce hardwood flooring throughout, larger closets, and window seats with storage. Other updates include: all new storm doors with easy pull-down screen, a new 40-gallon gas-fired Bradford White hot water heater, installed in 2019. In 2007 a two-zone SpacePAK central air conditioning system was installed. About one-third of the basement is semi-finished for a man-cave or play area and a stairwell pantry. This elegant Second Empire structure is part of Kennett Square?s history and has only been owned by five different families in its 141 years. This home is centrally located within walking distance to all of Kennett Square?s amenities, including: nationally recognized Kennett YMCA, Anson B. Nixon Park, State Street shops and restaurants, Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center and Kennett High School.
