Property Description

Here’s another gem from Airtight Construction on one of the loveliest tree-lined blocks in Cobbs Creek. It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what we love about this home—it’s more of a feeling. Yes, it’s a quality renovation; yes, it has original charm; and yes, it has creature comforts like central air, a modern chef’s kitchen and a finished basement, but we think it’s the West Philly feels that really get you. You’ll get it the minute you pull up and see those stately columns on the classic porchfront, leaded glass window, and original wood doors that bookend the oh-so-welcoming hex-tiled vestibule. You’ll be drawn in to the open floorplan, feel the warmth of the refinished hardwood floors, and daydream about meals made in the L-shaped kitchen with black 42-inch Shaker-style cabinets, contrasting white subway tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, including a French door Samsung fridge, and granite countertops. For outdoor entertaining the backyard is the ideal size for BBQs, planting beds and maybe even a firepit. Three nicely sized bedrooms occupy the second floor, with the master at the front with dual closets and a pretty bay window overlooking the garden. The other two bedrooms also enjoy great natural light and ample closet space. The spacious hall bath features porcelain tile floors and tub surround, handy glass corner shower shelves for toiletries, and a marble-topped vanity for extra storage. The basement’s good ceiling height, recessed lighting and handsome porcelain tile flooring make it a truly useable living space, topped off by a guest bath with ceramic tile floors, stylish gray distressed wood vanity and extra-wide walk-in shower. Baltimore Ave is right at your fingertips, while Cobbs Creek’s hiking and biking trails, baseball, basketball and ice skating rink are just a few blocks away.
