Property Description

Not all flips are created equal, and one of our favorite developer clients hits it out of the park yet again with this Cobbs Creek house. Staying true to the home’s original character, this rehab provides all the creature comforts and upgrades without feeling cookie-cutter or prefab. The fresh facade and classic porchfront welcome you into an open living and dining area with pretty wide-plank hardwood floors, recessed lighting and large front window. The nicely laid-out kitchen features white quartz countertops with porcelain tile backsplash with sea glass subway tile inlay, Shaker-style cabinets and a stainless steel appliance package including Frigidaire Gallery five-burner range and Samsung French door refrigerator and bottom-drawer freezer. Don’t miss the bonus living space in the finished basement, where the addition of a half bath makes it work for a guest space. There is extra storage space as well to keep bulky seasonal items out of sight. On the second floor, the master bedroom at the front of the house has a lovely bay window, new carpet that continues throughout this level and good closet space. The other two bedrooms are similar in size and have nice original five-panel doors; the rear bedroom has dual closets. There’s a hall bath with porcelain tile flooring and shower surround with a pretty sea glass tile inlay, deep soaking tub and dark wood vanity. The rear yard has plenty of space for a grill and patio set and maybe even a fire pit for the colder months. In additional to all the lovely finishes, the home also has completely new mechanicals and all new windows. This fabulous house is in a convenient location near schools, SEPTA, Morris Rec Center, the Free Library and shopping centers, and just a few blocks from Cobbs Creek Park, with its biking and hiking trails, baseball, basketball and ice skating rink.
