Property Description

This lovely home on a pretty Wynnefield block has original charm along with tasteful upgrades. The square footage is generous yet manageable; if we had to put a number on –right-size home–it would be 1,600 sf over two floors. It doesn’t just feel spacious and breezy–there’s a place for just about everything: entryway for mudroom, check; formal dining room with room for buffet and corner cabinet, check; double closets and niche for a dresser in the bedroom, check. Even the walkout basement has great ceiling height and could be finished for added living space, or use it as a workshop as-is in addition to laundry and storage. Back upstairs, pretty original oak floors with decorative inlay create continuity throughout and only give way to newer flooring in the huge, recently updated eat-in kitchen. Featuring plenty of storage in white wood cabinets, gray countertops and a mosaic backsplash to tie it all together, the kitchen has also been outfitted with a stainless steel Frigidaire appliance package and there’s even a shared outdoor space for a container herb garden or simply to have fresh air while cooking. The handsome wood staircase with curved banister guides you upstairs to three big and bright bedrooms. The room at the rear is the largest, with windows on two walls and two sweet corner closets. The front room also has dual closets flanking a niche perfect for a dresser or vanity, and a big three-panel window at the front. Even the bathroom feels extra roomy with a skylight, two linen closets and retro-cool black and white tile half-wall and tub surround. This home is conveniently located close to City Line Ave–or leave the car in the garage and head to the Wynnefield train station a few blocks away. Outdoor lovers will appreciate the proximity to Fairmount Park with all its running and hiking trails.
