This super-dreamy, high-quality renovation will win you over before you even make it past the coziest of sunrooms. Heated for use all year round, this tiled room sets the tone for the charming space and provides a classic West Philly vibe amidst the newer construction nearby. Continue into the wide-open living space with gorgeous hardwood floors that continue throughout the home. The modern updates like recessed lighting and on-trend tile selections are balanced with original details like a wood banister, salvaged doors and square bay. The updated kitchen features 42-inch white cabinets, granite countertops, a cool mixed-material mosaic tile backsplash and a Whirlpool stainless steel appliance package including five-burner slide-in range. Through sliding patio doors is the first of two outdoor spaces—a nice-sized deck perfect for a container garden of herbs, grilling and dining al fresco. Downstairs is the ideal guest suite: a tiled finished basement complete with stylish bath featuring porcelain tile wall surround with penny tile accent and separate entrance to the second outdoor space. There’s room under the deck for storage and still plenty of space for a bistro set, bike and trash can storage. Back upstairs on the second floor are three sunny bedrooms; the master has a lovely square bay with oversized windows and a niche perfect for a dresser or bookshelves. The hall bath is the perfect example of blending old with new: the salvaged barn door slides open to reveal a sleek on-trend light fixture, original skylight, porcelain tile tub surround and inset shelves for linen storage. We think you’ll have no trouble picturing yourself right at home here. Everything along the Baltimore Ave strip is within a few blocks, so places like Mariposa Food Co-op, Dock Street Brewery, Cedar Park Cafe, VIX Emporium, Gold Standard Cafe and Booker’s Restaurant & Bar—not to mention the 34 trolley line—are all super-convenient.
