Property Description

This classic Victorian twin is on one of the neighborhood’s loveliest blocks, loaded with hallmark West Philly charm and quirk, and in move-in condition with room for the next owner to customize. Original details are found around every corner, starting with the vestibule with solid oak doors and transom windows; beautiful bays and deep window sills throughout; original millwork and leaded glass panels. Over the years the sellers made some smart customizations, both in the details, like built-in storage and tilework, and big-ticket items, such as adding a main-floor powder room, upper floor laundry and in-law suite with separate entrance. The main level features a huge living area with gas fireplace, a formal dining room with sweet corner storage closets and bay window, and, through the butler’s pantry, the kitchen in the rear with a super-functional layout offering tons of storage and prep space. Admittedly ready for its next cosmetic update, the smart footprint already in place means that process will be a breeze. Oversize double doors open to the lovely rear patio, a perfect mix of hardscaping and planting areas complete with a pond. From the deck there’s a door that leads directly up to the in-law suite (in addition to its interior access); a right-size one-bedroom, one-bath apartment with kitchen and ample storage that, if not needed for someone’s private living space, could transform your work-from-home experience. There are four more bedrooms in the main part of the home, one on the second floor and three on the third. The room at the front of the second level behind French doors with leaded glass panels could be used as a colossal primary suite or WFH space complete with custom shelving, fireplace and bar sink. The bathroom on this level features a marble-topped vanity, walk-in shower with frameless glass door and subway tile shower surround. The third floor has brand-new plush carpet throughout the large bedrooms, which all have large closets and built-ins, and a full bath with custom tilework tub surround, oversized window and more built-in shelving. There are laundry hookups on the third level, saving trips down to the basement, leaving it (and the attic!) free for storage. The basement also makes a great home workshop and is accessed from within the home. The best of Baltimore Ave is at your fingertips, and both Clark and Cedar parks are super close.
