Property Description
Owner Says Sell!!! 10K Price reduction!!! Huge! Enormous! Gigantic! These are words that describe this stately newly renovated Victorian Twin in up and coming Germantown. As you approach the property you will walk on the expansive front porch through a stone vestibule. The original period door is the first example of the preservation of the beautiful millwork throughout the house reminiscent of an era gone by. The hardwood floors in the living and dining rooms are original and have been refinished. Throughout the first floor are beautiful new curtains that are included with the home. The kitchen is a chef's delight. There are brand new cherry cabinets and new stainless steel appliances. The granite is also new. It features
recessed lighting. The basement is clean and freshly painted for ample storage. There are 2 separate HVAC systems in this home. The second and third feature seven bedrooms so there is room for everyone. There is brand new wall to wall carpet on these floors. Both bathrooms and the powder room have been remodeled. To make this property more attainable a full assist is available. If you qualify with Atlantic Home Loans with a score of 660 or better this property can be purchased for less than 2000 down.
