231 E Garrison Street, Bethlehem City, PA 18018
A splendid blend of old and new, this delightful home offers all the updates demanded by modern lifestyles without sacrificing its architectural integrity. Built in 1900, the solid brick construction has gallantly withstood the test of time, along with classic period elements like the original barrel-vaulted cistern for water collection, high ceilings, and Arts & Crafts newel post. Vintage wood moldings, and original wood floors and door hardware are other embellishments typical of the era. Complementing this are modern updates - all new energy-efficient windows, new kitchen, and two new bathrooms (original powder room converted to full bath). Across the street is a recreation area with playground and basketball courts, flanked on one side by a planter wall tended by street residents as a community garden. Here it is truly possible to enjoy the best that city life has to offer - proximity to downtown restaurants, shops, museums, etc., with modern conveniences & aesthetic appointments.
