The best houses are the ones that have been lovingly cared for by their owners for a long time, and the pride of ownership of this Cobbs Creek gem goes all the way back to 1953. The beautifully maintained home combines its charming original details, like hardwood floors, doors and woodwork, with just the right upgrades, including a just-renovated kitchen and bathroom and replacement windows throughout. The large front porch offers plenty of space for a patio set, bike storage, planter garden or all of the above and leads to a vestibule with original wainscoting. The spacious living room showcases oak floors with decorative inlay, a pretty turned staircase and a decorative fireplace and leads into the formal dining room. From there enter into a separate breakfast area, a popular setup since it allows for an extra ‘flex’ space, leading to the compact but smartly designed kitchen featuring granite countertops, large stainless steel undermount sink with gooseneck faucet and new J&K maple cabinetry with crown molding. A new backdoor with integrated window shade leads into a small mudroom/pantry area and out to the good-sized paved yard with small inset planting bed. Upstairs you’ll find a large front bedroom with bay window, a bright rear bedroom with a beautiful original built-in armoire with mirrored doors, and two good-sized middle bedrooms. The stylish bathroom features a pretty vanity with great storage and ceramic tile flooring and shower surround with mosaic glass tile inlay. The large unfinished basement has laundry and lots of room for storage and houses a newer heater and brand-new Pex plumbing system. This great house is in a convenient location near schools, SEPTA, Morris Rec Center and shopping centers, and just a few blocks from Cobbs Creek Park, with its bike/hiking trails, baseball, basketball, ice skating rink and other activities.
