This University City home is grand in every sense of the word, with its soaring ceilings, large room size and magnificent original details. Located in the heart of University City, within the coveted catchment area for the Penn Alexander school, this “forever home” boasts central air and off-street parking. Originally a firehouse, this historically certified property has been updated throughout, combining old and new seamlessly. The original layout is intact—with the grand foyer; hallway; living room with floor-to-ceiling windows, fireplace and archway leading to formal dining room—but the huge eat-in kitchen has been remodeled and there is now a powder room. An awesome three-season room leads to the large rear yard. The second floor has a gigantic master bedroom, two more bedrooms, a recently remodeled hall bath and great storage space. The third floor boasts two more large bedrooms, walk-in closet and another updated bathroom. Flooded with light, impeccably maintained and tastefully updated, this home is not to be missed.
