Here’s another stunning renovation from one of our favorite design-builders, where beautifully preserved original details live happily alongside high-end finishes and custom touches. On a quiet, out-of-the-way block, this home is a real standout, starting with the gorgeous antique doorknob that brings you into the bright and spacious living area. The main level has a contemporary floorplan with a wide-open living/dining area with room to get creative—perhaps adding bench-style seating below the turned staircase in true West Philly fashion. The attention to detail continues with the chair rail, statement-making brickfront decorative fireplace, mood lighting in place of crown molding and a larger-than-average powder room with crisp white finishes. Continue into the dreamy kitchen featuring Forevermark espresso Shaker-style cabinetry, quartz countertops, stainless steel Whirlpool appliances, pot filler, and two deep undermount stainless steel sinks; the bonus sink is in the center island. Off the kitchen is the original rear staircase as a second path up to three spacious and sun-filled bedrooms, all with great closet space—the master has two plus a pretty bay window. And just when we think we’re tired of gray, here comes an exception in the form of this gorgeous bathroom with gray marble tile inlay alongside subway tile tub and wall surround, gray marble-topped Shaker-style vanity, and metallic silver accent wall. There’s a linen closet in the bathroom plus one in the hallway, and additional storage alongside a laundry nook can be found in the finished tiled basement. Well-lit with recessed lighting and pretty sconces, along with great ceiling height and a stylish full bath with extra-wide walk-in shower, this lower level is a great option for a guest suite. There’s a large rear yard that backs up to an alley, so in addition to a patio set or container garden, parking is also an option. Located just four blocks from Clark Park and less than a block from the Kingsessing Rec Center and library, this home is in an ideal location close to public transit and great local businesses along both the Baltimore and Woodland Ave strips.
