Exceptional opportunity to own the home that Robert Narriagn built for himself in the Narrigan Tract, now known popularly as the "Shand Tract". Robert Narrigan selected this particular lot for his personal home since it is one of the only flat lots and one of the only homes that you can put an addition onto at the right side of the house or in the back and has plenty of space for a pool. This home has an elegant presence that you can just imagine it in it's hay-day as you walk up the walkway to the front entrance. This parcel is quite large for the Community and was built as the builder's own residence because he saved the best lot for himself. This home has the traditional 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, but it has a spacious Master En suite, which in it's day was very ahead of it's time. The home is graced with a generously sized formal dining room, a kitchen that opens to the lovely back slate patio, where you can sit and dine in privacy and enjoy the back yard play space. There are several fireplaces for those chilly evenings in the fall to sit in front of while entertaining or just reading a good book. There is a quaint enclosed porch off one of the bedrooms that allows you to enjoy a cup of tea on a late afternoon with a wonderful view of the back yard. This home is very convenient to schools, all Major Highways, several train stations within minutes for an easy commute to Center City and affords the busy traveler a very easy ride to Philadelphia Airport. You cannot wish for a better location and a neighborhood that has so much to offer as far as progressive dinners, block parties, parades and much more. It is one of the most lively Communities in Chester County. Alexander Shand saw it's uniqueness and so does everyone else to this very day! This is your chance to purchase in the Shand Tract and transform this house to the magnificence that it once was. A little fixing up and this house will return to the "Grand Home" that Alexander Shand envisioned and one that you can live in and enjoy forever. Property is offered as-is.
