A lovely Germantown twin has hit the market for $327,500, which buys a six-bedroom home in a tiny historic enclave called Penn Knox.
A brief refresher: Penn Knox is a small neighborhood in Germantown that features a collection of 18th- and 19th-century buildings, many of which are certified historic.
Pretty much all of the homes in Penn Knox are big on charm and character, but this home stands out thanks to its mansard-style roof and curb appeal. It dates back to 1869 and much of its original architectural details remain. There are marble mantels, random-width pine floors throughout, and soaring ceilings to boot.
There are two spaces, big and small, worth highlighting. First, one of the full bathrooms (there are two full and one half) features a clawfoot tub and is accented with a triangular-shaped window.
The second feature that the listing describe as “best of all” in the home is a screened-in sunroom on the second floor that overlooks the backyard. It’s not original to the home, but charming nevertheless.
Chances are this home isn’t going to last very long—the listing states that the owner will review offers today, Monday, June 12.
