This owner-renovated home on a quiet little West Philly block is an ideal starter home. Renovated less than eight years ago, this move in-ready home is a totally manageable size and features brand-new hardwood floors on the first floor, a converted enclosed front porch to access the basement, high ceilings on each level and a flexible floorplan. The main floor is wide open—plenty of room for designated living and dining areas, and the current owners have the laundry on this floor for added convenience, plus there’s a sweet little powder room with an exposed brick wall. The sunny ceramic-tiled kitchen has two large windows, fun blue cabinets, stainless steel appliances and access to the rear patio with room for a grill and bistro set. Three nicely sized bedrooms occupy the second floor, with the master at the front featuring a pretty bay window. There’s a nicely appointed hall bath with ceramic tile tub surround and built-in shelving for linens, plus a bonus closet out in the hall. The basement, with good ceiling height and nice light, offers much more than storage. There are laundry hookups there as well, and it would make a great home workshop/hobby space or has great potential for finishing. Located in the path of University City development, this property is a smart buy for investors and occupants alike.
