One of Historic Bethlehem’s most admired stone homes, East Market Street was built in the 1920s as a doctor’s residence. The stone walls of the house are striking, and there are stunning architectural details with brick appointments, arches with solid oak doorways, and slate roofs with intriguing rooflines, all reminiscent of an English country home, with stone-walled patios and original leaded and stained-glass windows.

Much care has been taken with the restoration and enhancement of this beautiful and historic residence. There is a floor plan of 6928 finished square feet on four floors, with five bedrooms and a lower level walkout apartment … unique enhancements for a Historic Bethlehem residence. To create a modern functioning floor plan, walls were removed to open space for the magazine ready 2021 kitchen renovation costing $235,000 and boasting quartz waterfall counters and every high-end appliance imaginable. The new blends seamlessly into the adjoining rooms with period details such as magnificent woodwork, moldings, built-ins, and balconies. Throughout the home are original chandeliers, sconces, hardware, and custom-designed nooks and crannies. Of special interest are the three fireplaces with Moravian tile, brick, and concrete surround. The living room boasts 10-foot ceilings, mullioned glass French doors, and a leaded glass window bay. The primary bedroom has 10-foot ceilings, a fireplace, and a bath with a lovely 2017 remodel of marble and glass.

Continuing outside, there is a lovely garden area with paver walkways, a circular patio, and specimen plantings. Parking for more than six cars, as well as an attached garage, are very rare for homes in the area. This home is a treasured addition to the Bethlehem Historic District and one that welcomes you to all the benefits and joy of walking to dinner, Moravian Academy, and friends.
