Not all flips are created equal, as this super-charming home proves. The definition of move-in ready, this house offers all the modern comforts like an updated kitchen, finished basement, recessed lighting and all new mechanicals while maintaining its West Philly charm with original hardwood floors, turned staircase, round bay window and classic front porch. The vestibule, with original doors, wainscoting and unique parquet flooring, opens into the large living room with leaded glass window and oak floors with decorative inlay. A separate dining room with original built-in corner cabinet is accessed through a wide archway, making it feel less formal, and flows directly into the open kitchen with granite countertops and breakfast bar; Pioneer cabinets with crown molding; stainless steel appliances, including a five-burner Frigidaire range; oversize undermount stainless steel sink; and a one-of-a-kind backsplash with a mix of porcelain, stone and sea glass tile. Just off the kitchen is a sweet little half bath and access to the finished basement with porcelain tile floors, a laundry closet and extra storage space at the front. The second floor features four sunny bedrooms; the two in the middle are smaller but both decently sized and with good closets and brand-new carpet, while the front bedroom has hardwood floors, a bay window, large closet with storage space above and an additional corner closet. The rear bedroom, only slightly smaller than the master, has carpet and dual closets and benefits from windows on two walls. The stylish hall bath has a skylight, large white vanity with drawer storage, and a deep soaking tub with full-wall porcelain and sea glass tile surround. This fabulous home has great outdoor space and is on a quiet block convenient to schools, SEPTA, the Free Library, shopping centers and Cobbs Creek Park, with its biking and hiking trails, baseball, basketball and ice skating rink.
