As you stand on the wrap-around front porch, you immediately become enchanted with this three-story Victorian fondly known as "Butterfly Hall". Located in the heart of Ivyland Borough, the current homeowners have succeeded in retaining all the charm of the Victorian era while offering all the updated amenities that today's homeowners desire. The floorplan of this home is ideal for large group entertaining, as there are so many lovely spaces inside and out for guests to gather. As you should expect from a home of this era, the freshly-painted grand foyer has a striking chandelier, parlor doors to the living room and a turned 3-story staircase. The living room has built-in cabinets and is bright with many windows. This home is filled with gorgeous chandeliers reminiscent of the past but also offers practical recessed lighting in many rooms. The remodeled kitchen boasts granite counter tops, gorgeous center island, stainless appliances, a double sink, attractive flooring, pantry and a beverage refrigerator. Beautiful built-in curio cabinets with lighting, pillars, crown molding and brilliant chandelier grace the dining room. A small hallway off the dining room, separated with a full-glass pocket door, leads to a full bath, closets with shelving and a practical greenhouse. A second foyer of sorts from the dining room area leads out to a small enclosed porch. Especially enchanting in the evening, the enviable wrap-around front porch is a delightful spot to relax on a warm summer night. The family room has original hardwood flooring, a bay extension and crown molding. A special feature of this home is the spacious office with new flooring, a bay window, a separate entrance off the driveway , a gas fireplace and custom built-in cabinetry. This space is positioned quite far from the balance of the home, so it lends itself to so many different types of quiet home occupations. An additional consideration might be that with the separate entrance and the existing plumbing in the powder room, this spacious office and adjoining sunroom might convert easily into an in-law or au-pair suite; check with the Borough for all possible uses of these spaces. This sunroom has new flooring and is full of natural light due to a skylight and the sliding glass doors. This room could be used in countless ways: a study, a toy room, an exercise room, studio or reading room. The discerning buyer will appreciate the sophisticated master bedroom suite which offers a large sitting room and a large, practical dressing area with built-in shelving. The impressive master bathroom was renovated with the finest materials--classic pillars, a fireplace, jetted tub, spacious glass-door tiled shower and water closet. An additional bedroom is located on this floor and is bright with an extended bay corner and closets galore. This bedroom is adjacent to an updated full tiled bath. The 3rd and 4th bedrooms located on the 3rd floor share a bathroom with shower, and this bathroom features the same classic stained glass window as is on the stairwell on opposite side of the home. The 20'X 13' back patio covered by a pergola is a quiet retreat as new privacy fencing surrounds the entire backyard. A second patio is located just steps away. Although tucked at the back of an established Borough neighborhood where residents enjoy that small-town feel, 133 Chase is convenient to Bristol Road, the Warminster Septa Station, large shopping centers and great eateries. Meticulously-maintained, thoughtfully-renovated and decorated with an artist's flair, this move-in ready home is for the buyer who appreciates the fine details of the Victorian era yet find an updated kitchen and bathrooms a must.
