Welcome to 746 Centre Avenue, one of Reading~s most historically and architecturally significant properties located in the Centre Park Historic District. Built in 1877, this property would be purchased and remodeled in 1897 by a well know Berks County Industrialist who would double the size of the home while adding the finest of architectural details to its interior and exterior. Home would later be adapted for use as a house of worship with the addition of several leaded and stained glass windows. Property also had a major renovation under the ownership of the Berks County Historical Society including a new Vermont red slate roof. The present owners have also continued to update the property and have made it perfect for use as commercial, mixed use, or a private residence. Step inside the double front doors to a foyer finished in original Italian mosaics. The grand entry hall features a stunning staircase with built in decorative bench plus a one of a kind stone fireplace. The adjoining front parlor also features original decorative crown molding, bay window, and mantle. The music room has a large window letting in plenty of light. Across the entry hall is a large and spacious great room perfect for a variety of uses. There is also a nice size prep kitchen, two handicapped access. Bathrooms, along with special needs entrance.
