Recent price reduction on this early 20th century American classic combines the best of Georgian styling with Palladian touches. To be swept up the steps and through the grand entrance is to enter into a home of elegance and grace. The layout, numerous hand-crafted windows, and spacious rooms work together to create an artfully-designed, inviting, and comfortable home to be cherished for a lifetime.The large basement, while needing renovation features a large fieldstone fireplace, bar, pool table and workshop as well as entrance to the greenhouse. Built in 1912 and added on to in the 1940s by its second owners, the Snavley family, the timelessness of 1070 Wheatland Avenue spans two centuries with its excellent structure and recurring care. The home features three floors of living, with 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths, 3 fireplaces and a radiant-heated pine-paneled family room/garden room. Also a private secluded Carriage House Office features a bath with shower. Starting on the top floor with large, sunny, Palladian windows, a sweet bathroom in lime, two large bedrooms, and hobby room, the floor features many original built- in drawers and closets. The hall is sized for a cozy pull up ottoman and chair. Descending to the second floor are three bedrooms, again with large closets and storage ample for four seasons of clothing. There is a large cedar lined closet in the hall. The master bedroom features a gas-fueled fireplace with a lovely mantel. The adjoining bath has a large jet infused tub and is surrounded by white porcelain tile. The other two bedrooms are serviced by a well-built separate bathroom with shower. The undulating line on the carved Georgian staircase leading to the first floor foyer is mahogany. The main floor of 1070 Wheatland has numerous merits. Classic symmetry features the living room on the west side of the entrance foyer and a formal dining room to the left. The main living room features a classic fireplace and mantle and adjoins the 1940s addition of a garden family room. This room has prized pine walls and radiant heated terra cotta floor. The kitchen is an easy step from both the garden room and the dining room. There is a small butler’s pantry and full laundry in the kitchen complex. The kitchen with eat-in space, granite counters, and modern cupboards adjoins a mud room with rear entrance opening up to the backyard. This home has features too numerous to mention here, but the garage and carriage house office built around 2000 complete with bath and shower occupies the second floor of the oversized two car garage. There is also an in-ground greenhouse attached to the basement of the home. The basement, while not totally finished, is easily accessible and full of surprises! 1070 Wheatland Ave is within walking distance of downtown and many of the residents of this neighborhood walk to Central Market weekly. Almost every school one could want is also within walking distance as well as Buchanan Park and James Buchanan’s Wheatland. Owner/executor is a licensed PA commercial agent.
