Property Description

Don’t miss this artsy gem in a great location right off Woodland Ave. With its industrial-cool exposed brick, beams and ductwork, this property brings to mind the quintessential Old City loft style, a rarity in Victorian-heavy West Philly. This may look like your typical two-story rowhome from the outside, but the shabby chic interior vibe really sets it apart. The main floor features an open-plan living and dining space centered around a wood mantel wall accent, flowing directly into the U-shaped kitchen featuring white quartz countertops, crisp white appliances, honey-colored wood cabinets and ceramic tile flooring. Out back is a nice-sized yard-big enough that you can finally adopt that puppy or create your own urban garden. Floating stairs lead up to the second floor, which consists of a large front bedroom with a good-size closet and a rear bedroom that overlooks the yard and would make an ideal yoga room or studio. The updated bathroom features a classic white subway tile shower surround with decorative border and an upcycled six-panel picture window bringing in natural light over the vanity. The open area over the stairway acts as a whole-house skylight, and the cleverly placed transom windows allow natural light to travel throughout. This house is conveniently located near the foot of the Grays Ferry bridge with quick access to South Philly, and there are bus and trolley lines nearby that go to Center City in less than 15 minutes. The Woodland Ave strip, West Philly’s best-kept secret, is mere blocks away, and for outdoor lovers, the west bank connector to Grays Ferry Crescent Park is nearby, giving even easier access to bike and pedestrian trails, fishing piers and wildlife in the heart of the city.
