When considering the architectural uniqueness of Lancaster City, the William Wohlsen Mansion at 537 W. Chestnut St. is incredibly important. This C. Emblen Urban commissioned design for Wm. Wohlsen's personal residence is special. William was a master craftsman in woodwork & cabinetry. He, along with Urban, designed and crafted all the original intact interior fabric in this home. Elaborately detailed Chestnut custom woodwork adorns this residence, accented with elaborate stained glass and coffered ceilings. This is a true Lancaster City architectural gem. The property consists of the main residence and (3) apartments. A carriage house two-car garage w/apt. above. Six separate off-st. pkg. spaces are included off Marion St. This home is special and the apartments can be accessed after the main residence has been seen with satisfaction. A large engaging front porch living area positioned diagonally across from the Chestnut Street Cafe makes a very inviting Chestnut Hill location. Please see documents for more specific details & information. Also, please see Multi-Family listing PALA167650 for further details on this property.
