Property Description

Not another cookie-cutter rehab, this tasteful renovation was done by a local business owner who wanted to invest in the neighborhood that has been home to their headquarters for decades. With a traditional design sensibility, this classic porchfront sits opposite pretty greenspace in a great location just off Woodland Ave. Without a view into your neighbors’ living room, you might forget you’re in the city just for a minute. Stepping inside, you’re welcomed by a cool brick accent wall, gorgeous honey-colored hardwood floors, a large front window that floods the open floorplan with natural light which, along with the high ceilings, leaves the main level feeling larger than its already generous 15-foot-wide footprint. In addition to the generous living area, there’s room for a proper dining table plus a first-floor powder room that’s close to, but thankfully not awkwardly inside, the kitchen. The large U-shaped kitchen has prep space for days, crisp white Shaker-style cabinets, granite countertops with a breakfast bar, quilted subway tile backsplash and a stainless steel Whirlpool appliance package. Out back is the large deck for outdoor gatherings that overlooks an additional planting area—yes, you can have a garden in the city! There are three nicely sized bedrooms upstairs; the master sits at the front with a large double closet and more unobstructed views. All three have ample closet space and share a pretty hall bath with dark wood vanity, ceramic tile shower surround and a frosted window to provide light without compromising privacy. This renovation is more than just cosmetic—the seller updated plumbing, electric, all systems and topped it off with a new roof. Local faves like Four Worlds Bakery, Little Delicious, the Lil’ Pop Test Kitchen & Bakery and the 36 and 11 trolley lines are just around the corner, and outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy the Grays Ferry Crescent Trail Park and Bartram’s Garden nearby.
