Property Description

While this pretty porchfront fits perfectly with the other lovely twins on this picturesque tree-lined block, the interior is a real standout. For old-house lovers, it has achieved perfection; it’s got special original details like leaded glass and breathtaking unpainted millwork that provide that hallmark West Philly warmth and charm—but it has been updated with modern conveniences that blend in seamlessly and will stand the test of time. You’re welcomed in through the vestibule with original tile and doors with leaded glass panels into a bright and open living room with gleaming oak floors with inlay, turned staircase, leaded glass windows and decorative mantel surrounded by custom floating shelves. Original oak pocket doors can be closed to separate the living from the rear of the house, where the large dining room has been opened up to the showpiece of a kitchen. Thoughtfully laid out, it’s any cook’s dream as well as being ideal for gathering and entertaining. Custom Shaker-style cabinets and stainless steel appliances, including a Thor drop-in cooktop with a chimney hood against an exposed brick backdrop, blend with Quartzite countertops and center island with seating and a trio of pretty pendant lights. The back wall offers an additional bank of cabinets and pantry plus a butcher block prep space and floating shelves. The sellers also added a powder room at the rear and built a laundry closet for ultimate convenience. The bilevel backyard with deck is a true urban oasis with a mix of perennials, fruit trees and raised planting beds ready for the next owner to take over. There are four nicely sized bedrooms upstairs with more original woodwork and hardwood floors. The largest room sits at the front and has soothing deep blue walls, a customized closet with reclaimed doors flanked by additional built-in storage, and a lovely bay window with bench seat. The rear room houses a gorgeous original armoire and benefits from dual exposure from oversized windows. The recently updated hall bath features a marble-topped statement piece of a dual vanity, custom wainscoting, marble hex tile floors and subway tile tub surround. The basement is a surprisingly useable space, partially finished with its own half bath, ample storage space and good ceiling height. The room at the back was previously an artist studio and is a great flex space for whatever you need. The best of Baltimore Ave is at your fingertips, and both Clark and Cedar parks are super close.
