Surrounding AreaWithin the highly rated Williamsport Area School District.
Historic Williamsport, lumber boom town from 1850-1910, sits on the beautiful West Branch of the Susquehanna River,and is today known as the gateway to the recreational wonderland known as the Pennsylania Wilds, which start at the northern and western edges of the city limits.
Williamsport is also the birthplace of Little League baseball, and is home to the annual Little League World Series, broadcast on ESPN every year.
Do what I did, and consider settling here!
Only the third ownerThe home was originally built in 1860 or so in the heart of booming Williamsport's high society area, for Lucy Eutermarks and her husband, by her parents, Samuel and Emma Filbert. It is three doors up from the exceptionally beautiful (and also historic) Ways Garden park.
It was originally built with a cupola, which was later removed.
The current owner, who expertly oversaw the 40 year resortation project, is the third owner.
It has modern twin gas-fired forced air furnaces, as well as central air conditioning. The relatively low sloped roof, typical of the Italianate style, now has a rubber membrane surface, replaced 15 years ago, per the owner.
All the plumbing has been replaced with modern plumbing, as has the electrical system. The kitchen has all modern appliances, but the cabinetry is partly original and partly custom built by an expert carpenter to match.
The carpeting is almost entirely Brussels style 100% wool, custom made in British mills. The wallpaper is mostly from France and Italy, and appropriate to the period. The luxurious curtains and drapes are also mostly Eurpean in origin.
