Property Description

This beautifully renovated porchfront rowhome is on a great Cobbs Creek block. Brimming with charm, both old and new—from the turned staircase, bay windows and leaded glass transom to the exposed brick accents, modern kitchen and finished basement—this classic West Philly home has something for everyone. The open-concept main floor showcases the ample floor space for designated living and dining areas as well as the huge L-shaped kitchen with center island, and is fully wired for sound. Though situated at the rear, the kitchen is the true centerpiece of the home with its tray ceiling, black granite countertops, painted white cabinets with exposed brick wall backdrop, and stainless steel appliances including Samsung French door fridge with bottom-drawer freezer. Out back is nicely sized yard with actual greenspace, and the mudroom at the back of the kitchen is great for storing gardening tools, leaving the breezeway for bike and trash can storage. This level is completed by a sweet half bath with oversize ceramic tile with a bold yet tasteful pattern and gray vanity with Shaker-style doors. The master bedroom sits at the front of the second floor and features a pretty bay window with bench seating and storage below in addition to the double-wide closet. The three other bedrooms are all a nice size with good natural light and share a pretty hall bath with gray beadboard vanity, skylight and porcelain tile floors and tub surround. The finished basement offers bonus living space in addition to the laundry area and storage options. It has its own stylishly finished full bath with hex tile floors and wide walk-in shower with porcelain tile surround. Baltimore Ave is right at your fingertips, while Cobbs Creek’s hiking and biking trails, baseball, basketball and ice skating rink are just a few blocks away.
