Property Description

Missing neither a bell nor a whistle, this porchfront twin shows how to renovate right. It’s a wish list come to life; pale gray walls are paired with blond hickory hardwood floors, matte black hardware and super stylish tile selections, along with all-new everything from top to bottom. In addition to the noteworthy design choices another theme here is space, and there is plenty of it: super spacious bathrooms (even the first-floor powder room), wide landings in the upstairs hallway, and amazing closet space complete with custom shelving (yes, even in that powder room!). The stunning kitchen has all the prep and storage space you need with white Shaker-style cabinetry, gleaming white quartz countertops and stainless steel Frigidaire appliances including a slide-in range plus a center island below pretty pendant lights. And yes, there’s room for a formal dining table in addition to the breakfast bar. Rivaling the kitchen for our favorite details is the master suite; the tray ceiling with recessed matte black ceiling fan, gorgeous bay window and custom paneled closet doors all are swoon-worthy. Then there’s the sliding barn door revealing the dreamy master bath featuring gray wood-grain tile floors, black and white art deco shower floor, frameless glass shower doors and two windows. The other two bedrooms are larger than standard with large windows and closets with custom built-ins. They share the second full bath featuring a soaking tub with bench seat and oversized subway tile surround, wood-grain tile floors and a quartz-topped vanity. Need more living space? Head down to the finished basement; in addition to laundry hookups and storage there’s exterior access to the backyard, providing perfect flow for indoor/outdoor entertaining. This bright and breezy home is conveniently located near the Kingsessing Rec Center, with its newly made-over pool, environmentally friendly landscaping and year-round programming, as well as the Free Library. This property is also convenient to multiple bus and trolley lines and the Baltimore and Woodland Ave retail strips.
