To the future owners of 1608 Penn Street,
I retired from a city in Texas, and I wanted a lower living cost and cooler weather. A friend who relocated to Central PA suggested I consider Harrisburg. I came, saw the city and its quaint midtown neighborhoods, the beautiful river, and I made the decision to make Harrisburg my new home.
It was love at first sight when I saw this property. I had looked at many places prior to seeing this place. It was cozy; it had charm, and it was in the right location. Convenient to great restaurants and the beautiful Susquehanna, I knew this was going to be Home. It is a lovely place, and we have tried to make those touches that accentuate its features. This is a place that is easy to adore. We are moving to be closer to work, but this place will always be special to us.
The best features are the beautiful window treatments, custom blinds throughout, the huge 2nd floor bathroom complete with claw foot tub and beautiful tile flooring, a lovely fenced patio area, and the spacious bedrooms.
The location of this home is exceptional! This home is within 5 minutes of Yellow Bird, Ted’s where one can get some of the best wings, and of course Ciervo’s great pizza and salads. One of my favorite stops is Midtown Scholar Bookstore where it’s possible to meet an author at a book signing. All this within walking distance of home!
