Welcome to 173 Bridge Street--an incredible 3 story Historical Victorian Home that has been lovingly and Meticulously restored to it's original splendor and features the best of old and new, including restored hardwood floors, staircase, and trim, brand new mechanicals, electrical systems, pex plumbing, and new kitchen and baths. Energy efficient glazing replicates the original double hung windows, letting in lots of natural light throughout. Dating back to 1885, this home was originally one of the "Goddard Three" - 3 matching Victorian "summer cottages," built by one of Morton's early leaders, Dr. Kingston Goddard. This is the first time in nearly 40 years that one of these three homes has been on the market. The restored 1880 train station, an easy 5 minute walk from the home, offers over 40 trains daily to and from Philadelphia, Media, with SEPTA and Amtrak connections to points throughout the region. Surrounding the train station, Morton's business district offers a wide variety of amenities, from great breakfast and barbeque to childcare and kickboxing classes. Exterior historic features of this "Carpenter Gothic" Victorian include turned porch posts and hand carved "gingerbread" details. Missing woodwork has been perfectly matched to the original. Solid beams and hand craftsmanship will continue to stand the test of time in ways that today's construction can't match. The home is ideal for buyers looking for historic character, state of the art features, located on a quiet street in this friendly, close-knit community.
