About Denise Rossano

My husband and I have been together since we were teenagers and have always made our way up to Pennsylvania from New York for the past 32 years. We accidentally found Jim Thrope when we picked up a brochure for mountain biking. When we turned into the town we couldn't believe how beautiful it was. As we took our first step into this house, we were in love. I hope you will have wonderful memories, adventure packed weeks or just stop in and fall in love all over again!

Denise Rossano purchased this house in 2011

Why Denise Rossano chose Jim Thorpe

Besides the obvious reasons of beauty, the history of the house and its location, just sold us.

What makes this house unique

The house is amazing - very spacious, anything you need is there, a great getaway spot in a fabulous town that offers a little bit of everything for everybody. It's located right on the main drag, so just steps away from the shops.

Clean, convenient, quiet and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

The house is well located to easily access the attractions and restaurants of Jim Thorpe by walking. All the rooms are on the first floor, the bedrooms being clean and comfortable. The 1850's house/mansion has been updated as to electrical, plumbing, kitchen, bathrooms and air conditioning. There is street parking in the front but open spaces are hard to find. Behind the house on a parallel street are designated spaces for this house. This street is on a hillside so there are about thirty steps in the rear to negotiate.
