Property Description

With charm and character for days, this lovingly restored house already feels like home. From the planting beds beneath the open front porch to the newly refinished hardwood floors, from the updated kitchen to the copy-worthy staging, this house is warm, welcoming and move-in ready. The first floor opens into the living room with decorative mantel, large window with leaded glass transom overlooking the porch, pretty original banister and original pine floors that continue throughout. There’s a spacious dining room with an extra-deep storage closet and access to the basement with laundry area. The renovated kitchen is dotted with vintage-chic touches like the white beadboard walls, wrought iron fixtures and a porcelain farmhouse sink. The stainless steel appliances–including Whirlpool range and dishwasher and a sleek pro-style range hood–help blend new with old and pair nicely with the white Shaker-style cabinets, butcher block countertops and slate tile floor. A custom-built radiator cover provides additional prep or display space, and the two large windows help make the room bright and breezy. Upstairs there are three good-sized bedrooms and a nicely appointed hall bath with classic black-and-white tile flooring and walls, crisp white fixtures and a classic West Philadelphia skylight. The front bedroom has a pretty bay window and large closet. The other two bedrooms are similar in size; the rear bedroom has another large closet. This home is convenient to the 52nd St commercial strip and just a short commute to the 34 trolley line, Cedar Park, Dock Street, Amari’s, Vix Emporium, Taco Angeleno and everything Baltimore Ave has to offer.
