Property Description

This West Philly charmer on a quiet little block that ends at Cobbs Creek Park has tons of original details, stylish owner upgrades and an end-of-row status that brings in bonus natural light through a combo of side and interior windows and transoms. There’s an abundance of original woodwork beginning in the enclosed front porch and continuing throughout: oak floors with mahogany inlay, glass-paneled entry door, stately window and door trim as well as multiple built-in cabinets. The kitchen was renovated less than five years ago and features charcoal gray quartz countertops, butcher block island with farmhouse sink and pendant lighting, stainless steel Samsung appliances and chimney hood, white Shaker-style cabinets and a leaded glass picture window. The mudroom on this level also got an upgrade with porcelain tile floors and a pretty powder room with floating sink, while the original glass-front cabinets maintain the home’s classic charm. The rear patio provides a nice area for planting and dining al fresco, with a breezeway to the street for bike and trash storage and easy guest access to warm-weather gatherings. Upstairs, the three bedrooms all have magical light, the front via a lovely south-facing bay window and the rear from its two exposures. The bathroom, which is ready for your vision to upgrade, starts with a great footprint that includes a stall shower with vintage marble surround and a separate soaking tub. There’s plenty of extra storage and a full-size Samsung washer and dryer down in the basement. This ready-to-go home is in a convenient location near schools, SEPTA, Morris Rec Center, the Free Library and shopping centers. Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the easy access to Cobbs Creek Park with its biking and hiking trails, baseball, basketball and ice skating rink.
