Property Description

This impeccably kept porchfront rowhome has time-capsule features that will make any vintage-lover swoon and, for someone who may not love the retro vibe but is looking for something solid they can upgrade over time, is a perfect combination of space and great bones in more-than-livable condition. It all kicks off with the original oak front door, vestibule wainscoting and leaded glass entry. High ceilings with crown molding start in the large living room with leaded glass bay window and continue in the formal dining room with original built-in corner china cabinet. The extra-deep eat-in kitchen has tons of solid wood late-mid-century cabinets and drawers, mint green Formica countertops and an absolutely to-die-for Chambers stainless steel cooktop with griddle and aluminum front with all the original dials and levers intact—vintage perfection down to even the burner plates. Up the turned staircase with original millwork and banister are four bedrooms, all with original mirrored closet doors and ornate radiators, along a skylit hallway. Almost every room features vintage wallpaper in near-perfect condition. The exception is the front bedroom, the largest, which is painted a back-on-trend pink and has a lovely round five-window bay. The remaining rooms are all connecting, beginning with the bathroom, which is good in size and has an incredible pink cast iron deco corner tub plus original floor and wall tiles against a pink butterfly wallpaper. The geometric and floral wallpapered middle bedrooms are each big enough to be true bedrooms. Finally, there’s a good-sized rear bedroom with closets flanking a window along with a second window with western exposure. The back two bedrooms have original pine floors, offering a glimpse of what we can hope runs throughout the upstairs, and the sellers are almost certain that beneath the immaculate carpet downstairs are narrow-plank oak floors with inlay. The home sits on a hallmark Cobbs Creek block—wide and lined with charming rowhomes—that is near Sayre Rec (with a pool!), directly across from the charming Freedom Garden and of course has easy access to Cobbs Creek Park.
