We recenlty found out that my grandfather, John Dettori lived in this apartment when he first arrived in Kennett Square. He was a "lodger" and lived with a Jewish family from Russia - the Bernsteins. He lived the rest of his life in Kennett Square. He was a barber. His 1st Barber Shop was located at 110 W State Street - lower level. There was a reason I was so determined to purchase this building. Lots of Kennett Square history here!

This is the 2nd property we have purchased here in downtown Kennett Square. We both have a love for our downtown. It has been our home town for many years and our history goes back to our grandparents living side by side in the early '20s in an apartment building at the corner of State and Union just up the block from our properties. Who would have ever thought?

We chose to make our apartments vacation rentals to offer a more comfortable setting for families and/or couples who just want to relax in a place with some of the amenities they might have at home. Our apartments are also available for those who need to be here for work for several months at a time.
Full kitchen, large bath, comfortable living. All towels and linens included at this rental as well as everything needed in the kitchen for cooking and dining.
My husband and I had a wonderful week in this apartment. It is very comfortable, spacious and charmingly furnished. We had everything we needed and Kathie, the owner, was always available for information, help and suggestions.
It was so easy to visit all the local attractions: Winterthur, Longwood Gardens, Nemours, Brandywine River Museum--just to name a few. And if you want to stay put, Kennett Square is charming all on its own.
Convenient off street parking was included in the rental. My only caveat--and it represented no problem for us--is that if stairs are a problem that this might not be a good choice as it is one flight up from the street and two from parking.
