This University City gem combines original charm with all the right upgrades and cool custom touches like shiplap walls, exposed brick wall accenting the stairs and dining room and a stylish bathroom that makes us swoon. Making sure to maintain that true West Philly vibe, the sellers refinished the gorgeous original hardwood floors, spruced up the built-in armoire in the front bedroom and touched up other lovely details like the dining room china cabinet, plaster ceiling medallion and archway corbel in the living room. The main floor features a classic layout, starting with the porchfront and vestibule complete with original doors and wainscoting, to the formal dining room flowing through to the kitchen at the rear. Black and white granite countertops, white Shaker-style cabinets and stone tile backsplash create a timeless look, topped off with stainless steel Samsung appliances. The full bath, which is larger than some bedrooms, features a clawfoot tub, separate walk-in corner shower with subway tile surround and a unique salvaged wood vanity. The front bedroom is the likely master, being the largest and having that lovely armoire, while the other two bedrooms are certainly not lacking in size or charm. The basement has good standing height and lighting, not to mention being way low on the creepy scale, so finishing it could be a great project for the next homeowner. This awesome house is just off the Woodland Ave strip, with local faves like Four Worlds Bakery, Guacamole Mex-Grille, the Lil’ Pop Test Kitchen & Bakery and the 36 and 11 trolley lines all just around the corner.
