Property Description

This spacious Victorian twin on a picturesque West Philly block has original details for days, including three tiled fireplaces, inlaid hardwood floors, two clawfoot tubs and a built-in mirrored armoire. With a little TLC-either all at once before move-in or in increments after—this one could be your forever home. The original oak flooring with inlay runs through most of the main level starting in the living room with turned staircase, decorative fireplace, bay window with leaded glass panels and bench seat; through the formal dining room with another bay window and fireplace; and back into the kitchen. Featuring an L-shaped layout with white cabinets, counters and appliances, it’s a great footprint to build from—or start from scratch and create your ultimate kitchen. The original rear staircase is intact, providing access to the second floor; it’s adjacent to the stairs to the basement with good ceiling height, a laundry area and plenty of space for storage. Out back is a covered porch that leads down into a garden with raised planting beds ready to go for the next owner. Seven bedrooms are spread over the top two levels, and should you not need this many there are a couple smaller ones perfect for a home office or an enviable walk-in closet. The largest bedrooms sit at the front of the house. The one on the second floor, behind a stately pocket door, is where you’ll find the third intricately detailed fireplace, along with a bay window overlooking tree-lined Hazel Ave. The room at the front of the third floor features a gorgeous built-in armoire and connects to a middle bedroom. There’s a full bath on each upper floor. The one on the second floor features a clawfoot tub, vintage pedestal sink and half-wall of breathtaking intact original subway tile surround. The one upstairs is beyond charming with its clawfoot tub over wood floors. The best of Baltimore Ave is at your fingertips, and both Clark and Cedar parks as well as two trolley lines are super close.
