In a sea of generic flips, this owner-loved and lovingly maintained home is a real standout. A classic porchfront with just the right amount of vintage charm, it has all the benefits of the other recently renovated houses out there—central air, updated kitchen and bath, even four years remaining on the tax abatement—without the question mark of what will happen when the shine wears off. The open-concept main level has pretty original features like hardwood floors and leaded glass bay windows as well as plenty of space for defined living and dining areas, including a convenient—and discreetly tucked-away—powder room. The kitchen features black granite countertops with breakfast bar, warm amber-colored Shaker-style cabinets, mini mosaic tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances and a deep stainless steel undermount sink with gooseneck faucet. Never worry about trekking to the basement to do laundry; there’s a bonus mudroom off the kitchen with a full-size washer and dryer. Head up the turned staircase to three sunny bedrooms, all with good closet space; the front bedroom features a pretty bay window and the rear has a sweet nook great for a home office or reading spot. The nicely appointed ceramic tile bathroom has a skylight, granite-topped vanity and space to add linen storage. The basement offers plenty of room for seasonal storage, and the back patio is the perfect place for grilling and a container garden. This sweet little tree-lined West Powelton block is near multiple public transit options, and UPenn, Drexel and University City shopping and dining are all a no-car-needed commute.
