A lovely Victorian in the Penn Knox enclave in Germantown has hit the market to the tune of $307,500.

Penn Knox is a tiny neighborhood that features a collection of 18th- and 19th-century buildings, many of which are certified historic. While this home at 122 W. Penn Street isn’t historic, it does date back to 1865 and features plenty of original Victorian details throughout.

The first floor is a mix of old and new: There are the original bay windows with interior shutters that bring in a lot of south-facing light. The kitchen, though recently renovated, although it still has its own charm and works with its surroundings. This floor also connects to the home’s addition, which serves as a sunny family room that has a wood-burning stove and exposed brick.

On the upper two levels, there’s plenty of original character, as well, from the deep-silled windows and hardwood floors to the ceramic-tiled floors and pedestal sinks in the bathrooms. (Fun fact: The renovated half-bath was published in Half bath, featured in the 2016 edition of "Living with Pattern" by Rebecca Atwood, according to the listing.)
