Beautiful, meticulously maintained University City home with original details on the lovely 5000 block of Catharine, where the porches and gardens display pride of ownership. This twin boasts refinished hardwood floors; unpainted woodwork; original butler’s pantry, armoire, window seat and more. The foyer with original wainscoting opens to the living room with lovely turned staircase and leaded glass windows; pocket doors lead to the large dining room. The eat-in kitchen was renovated in the past few years—modest but with a good layout and barely-used appliances. Off the kitchen there’s a utility room with laundry and half bath, leading to a nice-size backyard with recent plantings (including cucumbers, tomatoes, azaleas and a rose bush). The 2nd floor features a large front bedroom with bay window and decorative fireplace; a large, light-filled rear bedroom; two more spacious bedrooms and a hall bath with clawfoot tub and original subway tile. The large unfinished basement houses recent mechanicals. A West Philly must-see!
