Property Description

This meticulously maintained and respectfully updated classic stone Victorian is on one of the neighborhood’s loveliest blocks. Filled with the best possible combination of original charm and thoughtful customizations, this spacious home offers flexible options for an owner occupant to have tenants help pay the mortgage or use as a single-family home with an in-law or au pair suite. The pristine original details make this home truly special—from the vestibule wainscoting to the grand banister, from the pocket doors to the ceiling medallions—and the modern upgrades, namely the renovated kitchen and bathrooms, blend seamlessly. The main level has formal living and dining rooms with high ceilings, bay windows, a striking decorative fireplace with original tile in the living room and sweet corner cabinet in the dining room. Don’t miss the adorable half bath with floating sink with original hex tile floors and subway tile wall surround. The dreamy kitchen was renovated by Louis Tannen and features Brookline cabinetry, granite countertops, subway tile backsplash and a pot filler over the GE profile cooktop. There’s also a custom pantry, bonus closet and access to the rear staircase. French doors lead out to the magical outdoor space, with a deck area for grilling and dining over a pretty brick patio and planting beds. Three bedrooms make up the second floor—at the front is a large room with built-in armoire, decorative fireplace and bay window. A Jack and Jill bathroom with timeless tile selections, beadboard accent and pedestal sink leads to the sunny middle bedroom. The private setup at the rear—with another lovely bedroom alongside a gorgeous bathroom with leaded glass window and door panel, clawfoot tub, separate walk-in shower with frameless glass door and pretty half-wall tile surround—makes an ideal master suite. There’s linen storage in addition to the two closets in the bedroom, as well as access to the rear staircase down to the kitchen. There are two one-bedroom apartments on the third floor, both with quintessential West Philly charm. The best of Baltimore Ave is at your fingertips, and both Clark and Cedar parks as well as two trolley lines are super close.
