This is not the cookie-cutter rehab of an investor looking to make a quick profit. The seller is a business owner who wanted to invest in the neighborhood his headquarters has called home for decades. The quality of the renovation is apparent from the curb—the exterior paint was carefully done to make the lovely details of the facade shine. This porchfront end-of-row has an oversize vestibule entrance with original transom; a large, open floorplan first floor with ample room for separate living and dining areas; a gorgeous kitchen with all the bells and whistles—granite counters, undermount sink, gooseneck pull-out faucet, Frigidaire stainless steel appliances (including dishwasher) and high-quality solid wood cabinets; a main floor granite powder room; large rear deck overlooking a good-sized yard. Follow the original banister upstairs, where you’ll find a large rear bedroom whose windows offer a Center City view, a good sized middle bedroom with bay window, and a large front bedroom—all with good closet space. The marble-tiled hall bath has a double vanity with a gorgeous granite top. But this is not just a cosmetic rehab; the house has a brand-new roof, replacement windows throughout, new PEX plumbing, all new wiring and new HVAC. Don’t forget the wood floors throughout. It’s even pre-wired for cable and has a security system installed. Trolley and bus lines on the corner go to Center City in less than 15 minutes, and it’s an easy walk to Four Worlds Bakery, Guacamole Mex-Grille, Whispering Leaves tea shop, the Free Library, West Philly Tool Library, Comegy’s playground and the Kingsessing Rec Center. If you’re looking for an affordable, move-in ready home, don’t overlook this opportunity to get in on the ground floor of this developing section of West Philly.
