Welcome to 417 West School House Lane, one of the most unique properties in Germantown! Built in 1891 by Minerva Parker Nichols, the first woman to operate an independent architecture practice in the US, her talent is evident in the design of the home. It has been used as two units (though currently just a single family residence), the second and third floor have been tastefully renovated as a self-contained three bedroom apartment keeping the original character of the home intact. And now for the really exciting part: The first floor is a blank canvas looking for the right person with a vision to transform it into something spectacular. Is it a spacious one bedroom apartment, an artistâs studio, a home office? The possibilities are endless depending on your needs! From there, enter into into the large shaded backyard, and never have to worry about street parking again with a 3+ car driveway. Half a mile from Queens Lane train station and less than a mile from William Penn Charter School, Germantown Friends, Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, and the Philadelphia Waldorf School, this house is well situated for Center City commuters and families wanting to live near nature and the Wissahickon without compromising the conveniences of the city. And don't forget the brand new Chelten Ave Weavers Way Co-op location is less than three blocks away, opening date to be announced.
