35 S Chancellor St

This magnificent Colonial Revival home is located in the heart of Historic Newtown Borough. A grand presence on the street, this lovely home has undergone a complete transformation over the course of the owners' tenure. A seamless additon as well as thoughtful renovations was undertaken by noted architect, the late James Hefelfinger and executed by J.R. Maxwell Builders. As you step onto the expansive front porch, you are greeted by a handsome door - half of which is beveled glass with an etched initial. Step inside the door and at your feet is an original mosaic of a laurel wreath design - a preview of the gracious interior beyond. The main foyer is large and welcoming - a decorative fireplace mantel with ionic column motif features delft tiles, greets the visitor and this space opens to the living room and dining room. For a house of this vintage, the floor plan is remarkably modern. A formal living room in understated colors features a stunning gas fireplace with ochre marble, and the first of three rooms which make up the iconic turret in this stunning home. A formal dining room - featuring pocket doors - was created from two smaller rooms to allow for banquet sized meals. A sweet window seat, extensive woodwork and trim, and custom built-in china closet with diamond designed leaded glass gives this formal room a gracious feel. Continue through the butler's pantry to the gourmet kitchen. This open space features abundant cabinetry, double built in ovens, drawer microwave, undermount sinks, and granite counters. There are two freezers, plus built in refrigerator - all cleverly disguised behind custom cabinetry. Open to the kitchen is the spacious breakfast room - with access to the covered rear porch, as well as access to the side hallway and front porch. The large family room features a large wood burning fireplace, stunning coffered ceilings inset with beadboard woodwork. An adjacent open stairwell leads to the fun filled lower level. This room has builtins, plenty of room for games, tv viewing and dining, and access to the lower level bar. Also on this level is a large laundry/craft room, storage room, unfinished basement and powder room. Front and back stairs bring you to the second level. The main bedroom features a neutral motif and the second of three spaces within the turret - this particular space features a curved sofa - great for reading and well suited for the space. The bath features the original clawfoot tub, a water closet, shower with custom tile and seamless door as well as custom vanity. On this level there are three additional bedrooms, one of which has access to the screened in sleeping porch. There is also a walk in attic at this level which conveniently allows for lots of storage. Important to note that the baths have radiant heat, and all have been completely remodeled with custom tilework and fittings. The stairs to the third floor take you to an expansive landing - and a great view of the open staircase - from first to third floor. This level consists of three additional bedrooms as well as a large full bath. A unique feature of one of the bedrooms is the room featuring the turret at the top of the house, which allows for a panoramic view of the streetscape below. The yard is one of the larger lots in the Borough and features the original garage, mature plantings and lots of outdoor porches for your enjoyment. A fabulous lifestyle awaits in this quaint walkable town - restaurants, movie theatre, great shopping, houses of worship - all within a lovely stroll.
