With a layout that defies the constraints of a rectangular rowhome, next-level finishes and a facade that blends nicely with neighboring existing homes, this brand-new house from one of our favorite developers is a study in good design. Gorgeous wide-plank hickory floors, a welcome respite from the ubiquitous gray; large casement windows and patio sliders that make the house practically glow via east and west exposures; and high ceilings running throughout lend a contemporary West Coast vibe. The airy main floor with coat closet offers open living and dining spaces, where a distinctive iron and hardwood staircase with a floating landing is the backdrop for a showpiece kitchen with an expanded galley layout. Its designer finishes include an oversize cement hex tile backsplash, quartz countertops and waterfall island, duochrome flat-front cabinets with stylish black hardware, and stainless steel appliances including an under-counter microwave drawer and Samsung French door fridge and slide-in five-burner range with pot filler. Each bedroom is on a different level, meaning everyone gets a roomy private suite that’s sunny—including the one on the (barely!) lower level—with a beautiful full bath, great storage space and its own standout perks. The second-floor bedroom has a huge walk-in closet plus two more closets and a lovely bay window that pays homage to the existing neighborhood architecture. The bathroom features a double vanity, Smart LED mirror against a backdrop of starburst cement tiles, and soaking tub with sleek black fixtures and contrasting cement starburst tile surround. The downstairs bedroom offers total privacy, a sleek bathroom with gray hex tile floors and walk-in shower with frameless glass door, and a separate laundry closet with full-size Samsung frontloaders. The top-floor bedroom has a nearly floor-to-ceiling casement window and direct access to outside, where a spiral staircase leads you up to the roof deck with 360-degree views. Besides the deck, there are two more outdoor spaces: the front porch, which is perched up nicely off the street, and the rear patio off the kitchen. Located mere blocks from Clark Park and less than a block from the Kingsessing Rec Center and library, this home is on a quiet little street in an ideal location close to public transit and great local businesses along both the Baltimore and Woodland Ave strips.
