Renovated from top to bottom, this perfect starter home with an uber-charming restored façade is in a rapidly developing neighborhood close to University City, Cedar Park and South Philly via the Grays Ferry Bridge. Feeling more spacious than the square footage would suggest, this right-size home has great flow, an open-plan main level and great outdoor hangout spots both on the covered front porch and in the extra-large rear yard. The kitchen is the highlight of the first floor: white Shaker-style J&K cabinetry offers plenty of storage, marble countertops with undermount sink give ample room for prep, stainless steel appliances let you exercise your inner chef, and a fun patterned hex tile backsplash brings a pop of color. A ceramic tiled half bath with floating sink and window is tucked away nicely on this level. The rear yard strikes a great balance between having greenspace with minimal maintenance–it’s an oversize patio with a deep perimeter garden. There are three bedrooms upstairs; the front and rear rooms rival in size and both have good closet space. The middle room is a bit smaller, though not far behind in size; it’s the obvious choice for a work from home space if you don’t need a third bedroom. The full bath in the hall has a nice soaking tub with porcelain tile surround, sleek contemporary vanity and pretty gray wood grain tile floors. The basement’s decent ceiling height and fresh drywall just may inspire you to set up a workshop, craft zone or a fully decked-out laundry room. Local faves like Four Worlds Bakery, Little Delicious, the Lil’ Pop Test Kitchen & Bakery and the 36 and 11 trolley lines are just around the corner, and outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy the Grays Ferry Crescent Trail Park and Bartram’s Garden nearby.
