803 W MARKET STREET, West Chester, Pennsylvania, 19382

Welcome to Windon Hall. This is your opportunity to own a piece of history! Built in 1710, with major additions in 1857 and 1882, this is one of West Chester's original homes. The famous architect Frank Furness added the Library, Staircase, and Master Bedroom to this beautiful home in 1882. With 9 Bedrooms, 4 Full Baths, 2 Half Baths, 6 Fireplaces, inlay hardwood floors, this house boasts plenty of room and is perfect for entertaining. Portions of the house have been utilized as an office, though can be converted back into bedrooms if preferred. Within walking distance of Restaurants, Shopping and the beautiful parks in West Chester Borough, this house is truly a rare find in the area. Major renovations recently include a new roof (2010), new commercial grade gas steam boiler (2014), new on-demand tankless hot water heater (2012), interior painting (2012-present), exterior painting (2017), new kitchen (2012), four new or substantially re-done full baths (2012-present), two of the fireplaces converted to ventless gas (2014) ~ remaining fireplaces are wood, koi pond (2016), side porch (2016), septic (2012), multiple exterior security cameras (2019), and countless other renovations and modifications under the current owner. The home has been used extensively for entertaining and works perfectly with the two sets of entry doors leading to the long breakfast bar on the island in the kitchen (perfect for a buffet set-up). A home-owner based business was accessed by others through a separate parking lot and entrance with numbered keypads separating the live-in portion. The offices can easily be turned back into bedrooms. The owner took care to preserve the historic details while also updating for modern living resulting in a one-of-a-kind home with historic features and modern conveniences located close to West Chester.
