The advent of the commuter rail line to Germantown, brought Philadelphia's own Gilded Age into more bucolic settings. This extraordinary Queen Anne Victorian single, built circa 1887 for Joseph S. Perot; and home to Governor Martin Brumbaugh from 1912-1924, sits among other significant properties that make up Germantown's Tulpehocken Station Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places. 254 W Walnut Lane is architecturally intact, mechanically updated, and a powerful statement of place. Approach the "Dutch-style" front door from the wrap around covered porch and enter the spacious entry hall with elegant turned staircase. Straight back past the back staircase is the large, eat-in kitchen and rear pantry room. To the right of the entry is the dining room, living room, and library. Upstairs is a large sitting room, typical of how Americans lived during Victorian times, and perfect for today's tv room. In addition , there are three bedrooms and two full baths. The third floor has five more bedrooms and two more baths. The stone construction, half acre of land, beamed ceilings, distinctive wood paneling, carved fireplace mantels, built-in bookcases in several rooms, and tall ceilings- 10 foot on the first floor - all make the house irreplaceable. House will be ready at the end of June for showings. Photos to follow . The next owner has a deep respect for history, and is ready to make some history of their own .
