Property Description

Here’s an opportunity for a homeowner willing to roll up their sleeves and spend some weekends on painting and DIY to end up with a truly special home, or for an investor looking for a rock-solid property. This well-maintained and spacious gem of a rowhome is nicely set back from the street, which is the very last block of Walnut and is abutted by Cobbs Creek Park. It has charm for days, both original–like leaded glass windows and oak flooring with inlay–and retro-cool custom touches like the floating staircase with custom iron railing and wood-paneled basement. A pretty enclosed heated porch with beadboard ceiling and decorative paneling opens into the lovely living room with woodburning fireplace with stone mantel, that showpiece of a floating staircase, and a wide archway into the spacious dining room. The kitchen at the rear is a nice size with a super functional layout and solid wood cabinets. Out back there’s both a porch and a grass yard, as well as direct access to the basement. There are three nicely sized bedrooms upstairs, and the dreamy vintage bathroom has timeless finishes including a pedestal sink, mini-hex tile floors and subway tile half-wall and tub surround. The wood-paneled finished basement is linoleum tiled and has storage galore, plus a half bath and large laundry room at the rear. In a convenient location near schools, SEPTA, Morris Rec Center, the Free Library and shopping centers, and of course Cobbs Creek, this charming home should not be missed.
