Nearly 175 years ago a local congregation built a Sunday School for their children overlooking the City of Lancaster in its entirety. Then, one hundred years ago this building housed worshipers coming up the hill for their Sunday services. Now, a new purpose is established for this solid structure, and warm presence, in Old Town Lancaster. The resurgence of 14 E. Farnum Street has brought this historic church into a meticulously restored single story urban homestead. The impressive, 8' locally-crafted, mahogany front doors greet you as you enter the large and elegant foyer. From the 12' ceilings and stately hallway lighted by brass sconces to the extraordinary crown molding, this home speaks of high style and appreciation of all things crisp yet comfortable. The magnificent kitchen and dining area features top of the line Monogram appliances, Wellborn cabinets and honed marble countertops. The full guest bath is spacious and sophisticated with its Carrara marble and exquisite walk-in shower. The guest bedroom has a built in designer wardrobe and all the finishes of a refined space. The master suite continues the stylish and discerning feel with chandelier lighting and artisan professional painting. There are dual custom designed closets and a master bath with separate vanities, Carrara marble and a distinguished walk-in shower. The mahogany French doors from the kitchen lead you to a serene courtyard with ambient-lit Maples, Boxwoods, and Switchgrass. Easy on-street parking, and nearby off-street parking spaces are available. This quiet and private retreat will surely provide a calm destination in the heart of downtown. Shown by appointment, come and see this remarkably renovated historic property, truly a gemstone for the 21st century.
