Here’s your chance to be only the third owner of a Penn Alexander catchment area home that defines the word “pristine.” The current owner has done a magnificent job of maintaining and preserving this house. Every custom detail is not only intact, but in unbelievable condition, from the stunning leaded glass, operating pocket doors and gleaming hardwood floors with inlay to the unpainted woodwork, curved plasterwork and two decorative fireplaces. Space will never be an issue here; if you somehow manage to outgrow the three main floors, the attic is a semi-finished space that could easily become a usable room—and there’d still be plenty of room for storage in the clean, deep basement.The front porch leads to a foyer entry with original doors opening to the living room with leaded bay window with bench seating, fireplace and beautiful turned staircase. Pocket doors with original custom leaded glass open to the formal dining room with three more original leaded glass windows. Pass the first-floor full bath, with fun retro pink and gray tile and fixtures, through an arched doorway and you’ll find yourself in a sweet little den that leads to an intact back staircase and a dated but perfectly functional kitchen. The second floor has a curved plaster hallway with a large parlor with fireplace at the front, hall bath with leaded glass window and more retro tiles, and a middle bedroom that adjoins to the rear bedroom with original armoire. The third floor houses an in-law suite—three more bright rooms and a full bath. It’s not just the cosmetics that are well-maintained; the current owner has meticulously attended to the mechanicals, systems, roofs and windows over the years. An easy walk to Clark Park, Green Line coffee, Studio 34 Yoga, Mariposa Food Co-op, Vietnam Cafe, Dock Street Brewery, Aksum Café and everything else Baltimore Avenue has to offer.
