Be the envy of your Pinterest followers as the new owner of this classic West Philly porchfront twin, which combines unique updates with vintage character. With recently refinished hardwood floors throughout, original details in every room, and quirky custom touches, this house is perfect for someone who doesn’t want to do work but isn’t interested in a cookie-cutter renovation. Enter through the original vestibule with gorgeous wood wainscoting and original tile floor into a large living room with high coffered ceilings, crown molding, stained glass and a beautiful mantel with intact original tile. The living room leads to a generously sized dining room complete with a pocket door, wall sconces and a unique built-in cabinet. The Euro-inspired eat-in kitchen features crisp white base cabinets, open upper shelving, butcher block countertops, stainless steel appliances, ceramic tile flooring and a custom-built sawmill-style island. The half bath off the kitchen is lined floor-to-ceiling with reclaimed wood and has the cutest little window. The fenced-in back yard has plenty of space for both grilling and gardening. A pretty turned staircase leads to the second floor, with a large back bedroom with original built-in armoire and crown molding, and an attached bedroom that would function perfectly as a home office, nursery or dressing room. The large front bedroom has a bay window, original mantel and a pocket door. The nice-sized fourth bedroom has a transom window and recessed wall storage. The bathroom combines classic hexagon floor tile and pedestal sink with reclaimed wood wainscoting and an industrial-cool aluminum tub surround. This quiet little block of Walton Ave is right off Baltimore Ave and is convenient to the 52nd St strip as well as Cedar and Malcolm X parks.
