About 1228 READING BLVD

You simply must see this home to appreciate the stunning renovation..69 acres ! YES! A double flat corner lot in the heart of Old Wyomissing! Working with over 9,748 square feet, the architect and owners worked painstakingly to respect the past yet weave the existing rooms together to create an open modern layout. The kitchen and great room look out onto a flat, private large yard surrounded by a new aluminum black fence. The archives history of the area reveal that this "second lot" was a wedding gift from the Bride's Father so they could have a large yard in anticipation for their family to come! Amazingly, the respective owners down the line held true to never selling this seaports deeded lot. A full curved arch brick and stone patio were designed to give the home the entrance it fully deserved! A global award winning artist both designed and installed the intricate wrought iron from the walkway up to the brick patio. and on the side right patio as well. The double door entry opens to an oversized living and dining room. The living room boasts a set of two 18 window paneled doors that open to a striking brick patio with both lighting and outdoor fan. This patio leads to a private "secret garden" stone patio for grilling and entertaining. A sweeping 800 square foot breathtaking kitchen invites amazing entertaining, and offers direct access to a 1200 ft cathedral ceiling great room. The kitchen houses one large and 3 under counter refrigerators, two full dishwashers, a Miele in-cabinet coffee center, and a a commercial ice maker. The great room features a contemporary french country feel....original oak wood, exposed beams, corner stone gas fireplace, adjacent full stone wall ,2 spectacular chandeliers, and 4 massive hidden bookcases. Direct access to a beautiful stone patio set the stage for a show-stopping urban lifestyle. Working with a great space gave the architects a perfect opportunity to refine the layout to match the buildings true character. Results are impressive. A new generous master bedroom suite with a stone surround walk-in open shower, private vanities, along with a large walk -in closet to house every bit of your attire! While the original basement was restored to its glory, (very cool game room with original shuffleboard floor!), a brand new contemporary entertaining suite was added on the existing basement. This includes a granite bar with wine cooler, fridge, D/W, and full sink! It is the ultimate party room for privacy or entertaining! Revealed in this undertaking were flawless hardwood original floors that were brought back to life inch by inch by an expert in restoration and preservation. In addition, 42 windows were replaced with custom Anderson reproduction double paned windows for efficiency and noise. A new full slate roof with copper gutters and downspouts were replaced. In addition, an efficiency plan was drawn up that includes a tankless water heater, central vacuum and central air. The custom landscaping throughout the yard was designed exclusively for the four seasons to be able to announce themselves in color and blooms. This home was on the Wyomissing Garden Tour in 2019! There was not an area that was not redone/replaced/lifted to perfection!The superb market location brims with highly competitive schools, shopping, dining, and renowned events,. Literally, just steps-away, is a stunning historic stone house that sits on an idyllic pond! The community gathers together around this landmark, as it is used for both public events like the 4th of July, local bands, or the annual Christmas tree lighting. It is available for private events as well! Also steps away? Unparalleled and safe walking trails and biking paths...along with the outstanding Reading Museum.***Important to note: In just two hours you can be at the beach...or skiing in the mountains!
