Property Description

This beautifully renovated home has all the bells and whistles we’ve come to expect in a quality rehab project, but it’s the creative use of space that sets it apart, proving that you can have the large footprint of a West Philly Victorian without the wasted square footage. The living room has new oak floors that run throughout the entire home and is centered around a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, providing a cozy (but in no way small!) seating area. The open floorplan continues back through the dining area with a nice bay window and on-trend light fixture and flows into the stunning kitchen with white 42-inch Shaker-style cabinets with crown molding, black-and-white-swirled granite countertops, classic subway tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, including a chimney range hood, and a stainless steel undermount sink with gooseneck faucet. There’s also a spacious powder room on this level with a large window and sleek wood vanity. Out back there’s a large back porch overlooking a patio, plus a breezeway, so all your grilling, dining, gardening and bike storage needs are covered. The second floor greets you with another pretty bay window in a large, wide-open landing with huge laundry closet~this flex space is perfect for a reading nook, music-playing HQ, playroom or maybe morning yoga. Both bedrooms on this floor have ample closet space and oversized windows, and they share a hall bath with a tub with frameless glass doors and a jetted full-body shower panel system. Two more spacious bedrooms occupy the third floor; there’s a large rear bedroom with dual closets and stylish marble en-suite bath with whirlpool tub that’s as luxurious as your typical master suite, but the front bedroom actually takes that title. The en-suite bath in this bilevel bedroom (yes, you read that right!) has a dual vanity, extra-wide walk-in shower with pretty hex-tile basin, jetted full-body shower panel system and frameless glass doors. Up a pretty turned staircase is the dressing room of your dreams–or for the non- clotheshorse, it would also make a wonderful library, home office or lounge; there’s already a built-in shelf that can serve as low bench seating, a shoe shelf or book ledge. And with dual-zone HVAC, there’s no need to worry about an attic-like climate up here, so you can actually enjoy the peaceful views of the neighboring park and even the Center City skyline. The finished basement provides yet another option for living space, with super-high ceilings and more natural light than a typical basement from three wide and deep-set windows. This immaculate home sits just across from Kingsessing Rec Center with its newly made-over pool, environmentally friendly landscaping and year-round programming, as well as the Free Library. It’s also in close proximity to multiple bus and trolley lines and great local businesses along the Baltimore and Woodland Ave strips.
