About This 1895 Victorian In Colombia Pennsylvania
Step back in time into this beautifully restored 1895 Queen Anne Victorian home. This stately six bedroom, two and a half bath home was completely renovated over the last three years and no detail has been left untouched. The entire interior of this home has been lovingly restored by trained craftsmen and still contains all of the original ornate woodwork, pocket doors, and stained glass throughout.
This home boasts a new roof, energy efficient thermal pane windows, updated electrical and plumbing, new heating system, and much more. The wrap around front porch was rebuilt and brought back to its former glory using mahogany stained tongue and groove flooring, and it now serves as a relaxing space to entertain friends and neighbors.
The original brick walkway was reset in a timeless herringbone pattern, and a new period correct gothic picket fence surrounds flowering shrubs and fruit trees in the spacious backyard. The outdoor area includes plenty of storage space in the oversized 10X18 barn style shed.
The third floor of this home includes a spacious mother-in-law suite with a full bathroom and kitchenette. In addition, the third floor space will delight you with an open concept gaming room complete with exposed brick accents and a Brunswick furniture grade billiards table. Step up into the crows nest turret for views of the Susquehanna river, or relax on the rocking chairs on the balcony for stargazing at night.
The property is within walking distance to schools, churches, and beautiful downtown Columbia, voted one of the best small towns to visit by Smithsonian magazine. This amazing home is one of the few historically significant Victorian mansions left in Lancaster County and even fewer are ever offered for sale. Now is the time… this is the home you have been dreaming of.
