What I love about the home

To the New Owners of 126 W. Lafayette Street in West Chester: Thank you for your interest in our home! We have loved living here over the past several years. Unfortunately a job relocation is the reason we are selling our home. If it weren't for that, we would not be moving. Living here has allowed us to enjoy all that West Chester Boro has to offer. The house is in walking distance from all the restaurants, bars and shops. It is so convenient to walk and go shopping or to go and have a nice dinner. There are also many events that happen in town that we have frequented too, and because of where we live, we don't have to worry about parking in town. We also love taking walks to the nearby parks and having picnics. Our weekend ritual is to have coffee on the front porch, visit the local farmers market (3 blocks away) and then cook a wonderful dinner and relax in the backyard with a few drinks. The house itself is very easy to maintain. It has beautiful hardwood floors and a kitchen large enough for us to entertain. The basement is huge. Not only is it great for storage but we use it as a workshop for my paintings and I also do hair there. We were going to have it finished but with the relocation, we just didn't have time. We have really maintained the home and we recently remodeled the bathroom and replaced the roof, flashing and the chimney cap. The chimney also has a stainless steel liner in it. The home is truly move-in ready. We also love having the off-street parking for both of our cars. Additional parking for friends and family is never hard to come by either, even on holidays. We know that you will enjoy our home as much as we do. We have made many great memories here. Our wish for you is to have many wonderful years and make your own great memories! Thank you!!!
