Left Behind

Wife, Connie and I left behind in Pottstown a house we lived in for 42 years and easily raised three children there because not only could we easily see both the Middle and High Schools but the grade school, Franklin, was just a few blocks walking distance. Easily accessible schools is a must in good child raising.

778 North Evans Street had many more assets than location going for it, for us to live there forty two years; such as, three large bedrooms and a full bathroom on the second floor. Also, on the first floor, a huge living room, a comfortable dining room, an adequate kitchen, and an all purpose room. Add to this, a "mother-in-law" quarter of a bedroom / sitting- sewing room and another full bathroom.

This fully masonry house with a full basement is complimented with an extra large, detached, masonry garage fronting the southend of a deadend alley. The property line adjoins The First Presbyterian Church to the south and is the anchor house on the east side of Evans street, a block filled with extremely desirable neighbors. Leaving our neighbors has been one of our most difficult decision in relocating.

Complimenting this home are mature plants and trees of stature and color that makes its extra large front porch so inviting. A comfortable front porch expands the livability of a house beyond description, sort of like, the feeling we get of a warm old comforter on a chilly day.

"Location, location, location" has always been the clarion call of real estate salesmen and saleswomen. Above and beyond, "Location" is this this house we called home for over four decades. It will be available after January First. Please contact me :( )

Thank You !
