Property Description

This right-size home on a lovely block has original charm for days, garage parking and true West Philly character. In addition to the crown molding, original oak floors throughout, two skylights and a pretty brick fireplace with wood mantel, you’ll find brightly colored accent walls, impeccably preserved wallpaper and even some hand-painted murals, all offering a warm and welcoming vibe. Enter into the sunroom, perfect for stashing coats, boots and bikes, but also spacious enough to have seating to enjoy a morning cup of coffee. It’s connected through a wide archway to the living room with high ceilings, pretty inlaid floors, decorative fireplace and your first glimpse of the pale damask wallpaper, neutral enough to blend into the background while adding a touch of flair. There’s a nicely sized dining room with a pair of corner mirrored doors, one to a convenient pantry and the other providing access to the finished basement. The L-shaped kitchen with crisp white appliances and freshly painted gray cabinets sits at the rear with access to a shed and sweet little balcony—a great place to start that container garden. Three good-sized bedrooms occupy the second floor and share a newly updated and totally adorable bathroom with beadboard accent, skylight, linen closet, pedestal sink and retro-cool pink tub with subway tile surround. The fully finished basement provides tons of opportunity for added living space, a home office, guest suite or artist’s studio. It has its own half bath, full-size Maytag Maxima frontloaders and a separate entrance next to the garage. This home is super-convenient to University City and the Baltimore Ave and 52nd St retail corridors, and the El is just a few blocks away.
