Property Description

This lovely Cobbs Creek home is stylish without being flashy, cozy without feeling cramped, modern without losing that classic West Philly charm. The main level is bookended by an enclosed front porch with leaded glass windows, and a mudroom/laundry room at the rear. The original hardwood floors run throughout the open concept living/dining area and meet ceramic tiles in the L-shaped kitchen, making everyday life—not just entertaining—a breeze. The kitchen features maple Forevermark Shaker-style cabinets, black granite countertops with undermount sink, stainless steel Samsung appliances and a white subway tile backsplash. Out back, the bilevel yard has an oversized porch with enough space for a grill and patio set, leaving the lower lawn to create the garden of your dreams. The serene master bedroom occupies the front of the second level and has a huge double-wide closet and a five-window round bay creating a sweet reading nook. The other two bedrooms are nicely sized with good closet space and natural light from oversized windows. The spacious bathroom has porcelain tile floors, a deep soaking tub with porcelain tile surround and a sweet gray vanity with beadboard doors. For added living space, check out the finished basement, which would make an ideal guest suite. There are separate rooms at the front and back and a nice-enough-for-upstairs full bathroom with a large walk-in shower with porcelain tile surround. In a convenient location near schools, SEPTA, Morris Rec Center, the Free Library and shopping centers, this picturesque block is just minutes from Cobbs Creek Park, with its biking and hiking trails, baseball, basketball and ice skating rink.
