Property Description

This tastefully renovated Victorian rowhome combines the best of old and new and, perhaps best of all, has off-street parking. Completely renovated in 2006, the house has classic details like hardwood flooring throughout, deep window sills, crown molding and chair rail, and bay window and porch painted in a Victorian color palette that blend seamlessly with modern creature comforts like a gourmet kitchen, dual-zone HVAC and spa-like bathrooms. This home also has features you never knew you wanted but now just might be must-haves, like a custom-built wine cellar, a wide bump-out on the second floor making for a perfect nook for a library, office or Netflix-and-chill zone, and a custom-built roof deck. The main living area is spacious enough to create two zones–perhaps a TV room in the front and a cozy seating area around the gas fireplace–and is separated from the dining room by a larger-than-average powder room with oversize window, porcelain tile flooring and half-wall surround, and granite-topped vanity with cool stainless steel sink. At the rear is the kitchen with custom 42-inch cherry cabinets, black granite countertops, tumbled marble backsplash and high-end stainless steel appliances, including a slide-in Wolf range, Broan hood and Sub Zero refrigerator. In addition to the den, the second floor has two nice-sized bedrooms with great closet space, and the front room has a pretty south-facing bay window. They share a hall bath with a walk-in shower with frameless glass door and stone tile surround and a large vanity. The entire third floor comprises the amazing master suite, with dual closets, another gas fireplace and a huge en-suite bath with whirlpool tub, marble tile wall and shower surround and granite-topped dual vanity with this home’s signature stainless steel sinks. Just outside is access to the amazing roof deck crafted with upcycled planking and featuring built-in storage, lighting and planting beds. On a pretty tree-lined street, this home is convenient to multiple bus lines as well as the Market-Frankford line. Neighborhood gems like Saad’s, Abyssinia and Manakeesh Café Bakery–plus the 44th St strip, with staples Honest Tom’s Taco Shop, Local 44, Tampopo and Lil’ Pop Shop–are within a few blocks.
