No one moves to West Philly for a cookie-cutter rehab. But let’s face it, everyone likes nice new stuff like central air, a master bedroom suite, non-drafty windows and closets you can actually use. With this spacious—but not too big—16-foot-wide house you get all the benefits of a well-rehabbed property along with beautiful original details like hardwood floors with inlay, decorative fireplaces, oversize entry doors and, unique to the homes on this particular block of Walton Avenue, Moorish arches, turned staircase with dramatic oversize windows, and gorgeous, super-high baseboards. The vestibule entrance opens to an expansive living room with super-high ceilings with recessed lighting, fireplace and wide archway leading to a large dining area (with intact back staircase) that opens to the kitchen with all the bells and whistles: high-end stainless steel Whirlpool appliance package, undermount sink, cherry cabinets, granite countertops and breakfast bar and a mosaic tile backsplash. Access the large rear yard through the utility room with laundry hook-ups and a nice half bath. On the second floor is the master bedroom with decorative fireplace, bay window and to-die-for en suite bath with gorgeous marble tile floors and walls and an enormous walk-in shower, as well as another roomy bedroom and large hall bath. The third floor features three more bedrooms, one with original mirrored armoire—fill them up now or grow into them over time. Literally right around the corner from Cedar Park, Dock Street pizzeria and brewery, Little Babys Ice Cream, Mariposa Food Co-op, VIX Emporium and all the other great Baltimore Ave businesses.
