Property Description

This charming home in a super convenient West Philly location was lovingly renovated by the homeowners and has a nice mix of original details and thoughtful custom touches throughout, along with a spacious layout to accommodate multiple gathering spaces without feeling crowded. The enclosed front porch is a perfect reading room with painted wood floors and a large original window with leaded glass allowing natural light into the main floor. The living room connects to the dining area through a large archway flanked by cutouts for light flow or to display plants and art, and the exposed brick wall provides a nice contrast to the deep blue walls. The eat-in kitchen at the rear is nice and bright, thanks to two large windows, a glass-paneled rear door, and fun color-changeable under-cabinet lights. The L-shaped layout features ample storage and prep space with granite countertops, white sea glass tile backsplash, white Shaker-style cabinets and stainless steel appliances including a Maytag five-burner range and LG French door fridge with custom chill drawer. Out back there’s a nice-size patio with perimeter planting beds and space for a table and grill. Upstairs, the largest bedroom sits at the front; it has a pretty bay window, recessed lighting and two closets, including a large custom-designed space with sliding doors that cleverly tuck away the wall-mounted TV. The updated hall bath features a whirlpool tub, sleek vanity with bonus matching storage cabinet, and an oversized window. There are two more sunny bedrooms and a skylight on this level. The partially finished basement has a full bath will new tile floor, separate laundry room and plenty of space for storage with good enough light and ceiling height for use as a workshop or home gym. This home is close, but not too close, to the Market-Frankford line for easy access to University City and beyond, while staying local means Malcolm X Park, the 52nd St strip and all the shops and restaurants along Baltimore Ave are within easy reach.
