This spacious porchfront home on a lovely tree-lined block was totally renovated in 2009 but maintains that classic West Philly charm. Starting with the wainscoting and transoms in the vestibule, and through the large living room with turned staircase and decorative fireplace with pretty green tile, to the formal dining room with French doors, this home offers hallmark Victorian details along with the bonus of being updated and move-in-ready but not a cookie-cutter flip. At the rear, the eat-in kitchen is spacious and well-laid out in a classic L-shape, featuring warm wood cabinetry, a brand-new Amana stainless steel range and plenty of opportunity for some easy updates to make it your dream kitchen. There’s also a convenient first-floor powder room with pretty pedestal sink and ceramic tile floors, as well as access to the back deck with paved patio below. The second floor features stylish new carpet and a spacious ceramic-tiled bathroom with a cute nook behind the shower, perfect for hanging bathrobes. The master and middle bedrooms feature beautiful bay windows, and three of the four bedrooms have great closet space–nobody’s perfect but there’s a deep hall closet to pick up the slack. The basement has extra-tall ceilings and is framed out for an additional bathroom, making it a great candidate for finishing in the future. On one of the greenest blocks in West Philly, this home is convenient to the 52nd St commercial strip and just a short commute to the 34 trolley line, Cedar Park, Dock Street, Amari’s, Vix Emporium, Taco Angeleno and everything Baltimore Ave has to offer.
