Property Description

This utterly charming, classic West Philly rowhome in the Lea catchment area has pretty details, all the right upgrades and a large backyard. The enclosed porch offers hints of the original charm within, with its intricate tiled inlay and leaded glass panels flanking a passthrough creating an indoor/outdoor vibe while staying protected from the elements. The living room features original oak floors with inlaid border, and a turned staircase creates a visual division for a second seating area or home office. A wide archway opens into the formal dining room with a convenient cubby under the stairs for storage and a large window over the breezeway. Bright and sunny, the kitchen at the rear features black granite countertops that pair with the black and stainless appliances, stone tile backsplash and a mix of wood and frosted glass-front cabinets. The glass-paneled door, along with the window over the sink, allows plenty of light and views into the backyard oasis, complete with pergola, planting beds and paved area for al fresco dining. The basement door is right off the kitchen for all of your storage and laundry needs, and the stairwell has overhead shelves to optimize space for day to day items. The rear bedroom has original dual closets, the front has a lovely bay window, and the middle is just the right size for a home office, dressing room-or both, as it’s connected to the rear bedroom. The bathroom is picture-perfect with a pedestal sink, crisp white beadboard wall accent, linen closet and a skylight. This home is convenient to the Market-Frankford line for access to University City and beyond, while staying local means Malcolm X Park, the 52nd St strip and Baltimore Ave are all within easy reach.
