Property Description

The vintage charm just won’t stop in this spacious Cobbs Creek porchfront row that’s nothing like all the cookie-cutter flips out there. It feels as warm and lived-in as a 100-plus-year-old home should, while also boasting a gorgeous new kitchen and bath and creature comforts like zoned mini-split air conditioning. There’s leaded glass sprinkled at what feels like every turn; ornate radiators; plaster crown and wall molding; and original floors, baseboards and window trim. The first floor has narrow-plank oak floors with walnut inlay. The living and dining rooms are separated by original French doors, and the dining room is open to the kitchen with designer-inspired finishes. The island—with white cabinets, quartz countertops, stainless steel dishwasher and undermount sink with pulldown faucet—sits opposite a wall of navy blue lower cabinets with brass apothecary pulls, floating shelves against subway tile backsplash, Whirpool slide-in range, matte black hood, and stainless steel bottom-drawer fridge, creating a super-functional galley layout. The navy and brass motif continues with a large pantry cabinet across from a refreshed three-quarter bath with sweet vintage medicine cabinet on the way to the mudroom and rear patio. Up from the original turned staircase in the living room is a long, bright hallway leading to the four bedrooms and hall bath, all with original pine flooring. The front room has a five-window round bay and original door with leaded glass. The two connected middle bedrooms—one with a curved plaster wall—each has closets with original mirrored doors, and they also connect to the rear bedroom with two exposures and closets with mirrored doors flanking a window. The spacious hall bath with skylight is finished with hex tile floor, subway tile tub surround, a modern-meets-rustic storage vanity and handsome black mirror and sconces. The basement has a ceramic tile floor, great ceiling height with painted rafters and fun cage lights, and a not-fancy-but-functional half bath, making this level usable for much more than seasonal storage. Laundry is tucked away at the rear, leaving tons of makerspace available. This home is in a great location close to Cobbs Creek Park, Sayre rec center (with pool!) and public transportation.
