Property Description

When considering the architectural uniqueness of Lancaster City, the William Wohlsen Mansion at 537 W. Chestnut St. is incredibly important. This C. Emblen Urban commissioned design for Wm. Wohlsen's personal residence is special. William was a master craftsman in woodwork & cabinetry. He, along with Urban, designed and crafted all the original intact interior fabric in this home. Elaborately detailed Chestnut custom woodwork adorns this residence, accented with elaborate stained glass and coffered ceilings. This is a true Lancaster City architectural gem. The property consists of the main residence and (3) apartments. The main residence boasts 2590 S.F. and the 3 apartments total an additional 3556 S.F. A carriage house two-car garage w/apt. above. Six separate off-street pkg. spaces are included to the rear of the property on W. Fulton St. located between W. Chestnut & Walnut.
