One of our West Philly favorites has knocked it out of the park with this stunning Cobbs Creek renovation. This developer uses bespoke light fixtures, hardware and fixtures to layer a modern-rustic aesthetic without overshadowing the historic charm. Speaking of shadows, the mature Japanese maple out front provides privacy without blocking the natural light that floods the main floor and makes those gorgeous hardwood floors shine. The open floorplan features a large front living area with painted brick accent walls and original turned staircase, formal dining room, and a powder room with a sleek little vanity that perfectly plays off the inlayed floor. The kitchen at the rear is a real showstopper with its quartz waterfall island, gray lower cabinets with black open shelving above, stainless steel appliances, including a Haier fridge and chimney hood, and black fixtures that pop against a full wall of white subway tile. There’s room out back for a grill and patio set—you can use the front yard to exercise that green thumb. On the second floor a sunny master suite awaits, featuring a lovely five-window round bay, double closet and master bath with skylight, subway tile tub surround, hex tile floors and statement light fixture and oil rubbed bronze fixtures. The rear bedroom has the charming original dual mirrored corner closets and connects to the middle bedroom, which has a sweet nook for a dressing area, mini-home office or the ultimate reading/napping oasis. They share a spacious hall bath with hex tile floors and pretty sea green subway tile tub surround. The basement has good ceiling height and offers plenty of room for storage or potential for finishing. This fabulous house is in a convenient location near schools, SEPTA, Morris Rec Center, the Free Library and shopping centers, and is just a few blocks from Cobbs Creek Park, with its biking and hiking trails, baseball, basketball and ice skating rink.
