Property Description

Can a classic rowhome be transformed with a boldly modern aesthetic without destroying the character of a classic West Philly block? This one answers the question with a resounding yes. Redefining the definition of curb appeal, the stunning black facade is punctuated by casement windows, sophisticated down-lighting and a covered front porch with reclaimed mushroom wood ceiling that frames the developer’s signature green door with an oversize arched transom and sidelight windows. Thanks to its 21-foot width, the main floorplan utilizes a center staircase and fireplace to create two connected but distinct spaces and introduces the white painted brick walls, hardwood floors, high ceilings and statement light fixtures that are found throughout. The kitchen, meanwhile, is the perfect blend of form and function: a full-wall granite backsplash with potfiller over the induction stove and charcoal cabinetry are the background for the waterfall island with breakfast bar that overlooks the dining area, with sightlines to the enormous backyard with low-maintenance hardscaping—a city dweller’s dream. There are three good-sized bedrooms upstairs, all with amazing natural light thanks to large casement windows, and high ceilings with recessed lighting. The largest at the front is the primary suite with great closet space and a luxe private bath with full-wall tile surround in the oversize walk-in shower and wood-front dual vanity with a striking round mirror flanked by sconce lights. The hall bath is equally lovely with a ceramic tile tub surround, modern wood vanity, sleek black fixtures and statement lighting. There’s an upper-floor laundry closet, leaving the basement free for storage. As a bonus, the green details don’t end with the signature door color: there’s an electric car charging station out front, there is no natural gas used in the property and the fireplace runs on eco-friendly ethanol. Community greenspace is nearby not just at Malcolm X Park but Cedar and Clark parks too, and the best of Baltimore Ave and the 52nd St corridor are at your fingertips.
