Come to 8 Windsor Circle and be captivated! Tucked away in the middle of Springfield, you won’t believe what lies behind the stone wall that surrounds Windsor Circle. A replica of an English Village, built in 1926, Windsor Circle is an enclave of 18 unique homes, which maintain the Old World charm of the past, with the modern conveniences of today’s world. It truly retains the value of peaceful living, while being conveniently close to shops, schools, and transportation. Enter through the gateway and slate path up to the front door. From the front door, you will find yourself in the spacious Living Room, complete with a beautiful fireplace. On your right side, you will find a formal Dining Room, with Slider doors leading to the back patio, which is perfect for entertaining. Next to the Dining Room, you will find the eat-in kitchen, which has ample counter space and cabinets. There is one half bath located on the main floor. Don’t miss the Bonus Room, which can be accessed through French Doors. It is currently being used as an office, but could also be used as a playroom, home gym, or even a guest hideaway, with a separate entrance. Retreat to the upstairs, where you will find four generously sized bedrooms and one full bathroom. Don’t miss the original banister and architectural details that abound in the second floor, such as the rounded walls that you just don’t see in newer construction. The Master bedroom even has French Doors opening to its own storybook balcony! A walk-up attic in one of the bedrooms provides an amazing amount of storage space, or could even be finished. Lastly, head down to the full, unfinished basement, where you will find the utilities and laundry area. There is plenty of room for additional storage here. Right off the kitchen, a brick patio and spacious, grassy backyard are fully enclosed, with a six foot high privacy fence, so you could safely keep an eye on the kiddos while preparing them a snack. Also attached to the home is a one-car garage. These days cars are bigger than they used to be. Word has it that these garages were actually built for horses, so while you may be able to fit your car in the garage, it may be best left for storage. You can easily fit two cars in the shared driveway, which can be accessed through a private back alley. In addition, on-street parking is available. Location is prime and offers residents access to shopping, eateries, and the Springfield Library, which is only a short walk away, not to mention the desirable Springfield School District. Three of Springfield's 24 parks are within an easy walking distance as well. It is a stone’s throw from the Springfield Road Trolley stop, and a short distance to the Springfield Swim Club. Located approximately 25 minutes from Center City, Philadelphia, 20 minutes from Philadelphia International Airport, and close to major highways, you could not ask for better access to everything. This home is one of rare beauty and original character that would make any homeowner proud. Don’t wait, make an appointment to see this gem today!
