This right-size house is charming both inside and out, with a bright color palette, unique finishes and great outdoor space. The front garden is currently in bloom, with lilies, daffodils, ornamental grasses and even a fig tree. The ceramic tiled sunroom with large window provides a great view, and the current owners added stylish-meets-functional bike storage and coat rack. The main level has a great open plan, with original hardwood floors that continue throughout, a pretty turned staircase, recessed lighting and a large kitchen with butcher block breakfast bar overlooking the designated dining area. The kitchen also features granite countertops, tons of handsome wood cabinetry, including an extra bank of cabinets below the breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances and a vintage pressed tin-inspired backsplash. Behind a pocket door is a convenient half bath with fun green walls and the cutest sink you’ve ever seen. The rear patio is a great space for dining al fresco; the extra-high fence provides privacy without making you feel boxed in. The front and rear bedrooms both have dual closets, while the master features a bank of windows overlooking the front garden—and with no neighbors across the street, you might forget for a second you’re in the city. The middle bedroom is the smallest but still has plenty of space to serve as an actual bedroom—no home-office-only situation here. The tastefully updated bathroom features ceramic tile floors and shower surround and a crisp white pedestal sink and floating shelves that pop against the dark blue walls. This home is just a few blocks off Baltimore Ave, with neighborhood faves like Dock Street Brewery, Satellite Coffee, the Fire Works coworking space, VIX Emporium, Amari’s, summer pop-up Taco Angeleno and of course Cedar and Clark parks and the Kingsessing Rec Center all super close.
