This nicely renovated porchfront rowhome is in a great West Philly location. On a quiet, tree-lined street abutting Malcolm X Park, this house is a great option for anyone who’s tired of yearly rent increases. The original details were maintained, like the hardwood floors, banister and doors, while opening up the living spaces for a more practical layout and including all the essential upgrades to a quality rehab, like a new roof, new windows, new plumbing, electrical, heating and central air. The first floor has a bright living room with original hardwood floors that continue into the dining area with a pretty turned staircase and cute corner closet. The brand-new kitchen has clean white Shaker-style cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, undermount stainless steel sink with gooseneck faucet, crisp white subway tile backsplash and ceramic tile flooring. Beyond the kitchen is a tiled laundry room, which leads to the decent-size rear patio. Upstairs, instead of squeezing in three bedrooms with one barely big enough for a futon, the seller expanded the front bedroom into a true master suite that includes a dressing area with large closet, exposed brick accent wall and a frosted glass door leading to the private bathroom with black-and-white tile floors and shower with oversized subway tile surround. The rear bedroom is also nicely sized, with a deep closet and three large windows. The hall bath has the same classic black-and-white tile scheme, only with a bathtub. The basement has good standing height and plenty of room for extra storage. This home is convenient to the 52nd St commercial strip and just a few blocks from the 34 trolley line, Cedar Park, Dock Street, Amari’s, Vix Emporium, Taco Angeleno and everything Baltimore Ave has to offer.
