    This Majestic Federal Colonial offers secluded professionally maintained grounds. Mature trees, shrubs and plantings adorn this property, which is surrounded by wrought-iron fencing and gates. One of the most sought-after neighborhoods in West Chester Borough. West Chester Borough has been named in many publications as "One of the best small towns in the country". One block walk to "Marshall Square Park". Marshall Square was West Chester's first park and Town Square in the borough. Some of the amenities of the park are a play-ground, Gazebo, basketball courts, water fountain, and plantings for the botanist enthusiast, and many historical references on Marshall Park's website. Just walk a few blocks and you're in the center of town. This incredible brick built home circa 1872, has all the ambiance, charm, character and elegance one would expect and yet all the modern amenities required in today's homes.
