As elegant and remarkable as you would expect, this 1928 historic brick home has the privileged legacy of being built by Bethlehem's renowned Frank Chiles, and designed by Lovelace and Spillman. It is located on a quiet, tree-lined street in Bethlehem's Old Rosemont neighborhood, and still retains the charm of an earlier age while offering the comforts of modern living through recent loving restoration...all with an eye to whimsy and fun. Stepping through the front door is a treat in itself, as the entry vestibule opens to the 2-story foyer with art deco-style floors and custom paint treatments. Unexpected designs delight at every turn, with bespoke paint and wallpaper and hardwood floors throughout. The spacious living room with gas fireplace gives way to a screened-in porch, ideal for warm evenings. With a large dining room, study, modern kitchen and first-floor laundry, this home is as well suited for lavish soirees as it is for cozy nights in. Upstairs, the master suite offers custom painted built-ins, and an exquisite new master bath luxuriously outfitted with marble floors, vanity, tub and shower. Four more large bedrooms and two full bathrooms ensure plenty of space for family and friends. A walk-up attic offers excellent storage. The lower level has been renovated as the perfect family/TV/game room and boasts a wine room as well. Situated on a corner lot at the intersection of two tree-lined streets, this friendly neighborhood welcomes family walks or biking on summer evenings. This stylish home was featured on the cover of the Lehigh Valley Style Magazine, and the 2018 Historic Bethlehem Rooms to View Tour, and is convenient to the best of the Lehigh Valley. Rosemont harkens to an earlier time where everyday living is enhanced by the character of a neighborhood.
