Property Description

This stunning porchfront twin is classic West Philly charm with all the right upgrades, most notably a showstopping kitchen by the area’s premier design-build firm. A vestibule with original wainscoting and penny tile floor opens into the lovely living room with refinished oak floors with mahogany inlay, decorative fireplace and plaster crown molding, followed by a large dining room with a hallmark bay window and statement multi-pendant globe chandelier. The main floorplan was reimagined for contemporary living, allowing sight lines all the way through to the Anderson sliders that open to a large rear deck overlooking the dreamy garden space with mature pollinators. The center of it all, the striking Bellweather kitchen features custom weathered-gray Shaker-style Fabuwood cabinetry, including two pantries; white quartz countertops; a Kitchen Aid stainless steel appliance package that includes a five-burner slide-in dual fuel range; and elongated hex tile backsplash. The center island with breakfast bar has an extra-deep stainless steel Kraus sink with brass gooseneck faucet; opposite is a built-in storage bench flanked by lower drawers and matching oak floating shelves overhead. The two upper floors feature lincrusta-lined hallways and refinished pine floors, and each has a large front bedroom to choose as a primary. The one on the second floor features a tiled decorative fireplace, bay window, large closet and a unique built-in with open shelving, and the updated hall bath has a pretty porcelain tile tub surround and vintage-style hex floor tile. On the third floor the largest bedroom features unpainted original woodwork and a stately armoire, and the sellers added laundry hookups to a middle bedroom, creating a large laundry room that could easily be converted back, and leaving the large basement with good ceiling height free for storage or maybe a home gym. With this gem of a house on a wide tree-lined block, the best of Baltimore Ave is at your fingertips, and both Clark and Cedar parks are super close.
