Located in sought-after East Passyunk and remodeled from top to bottom, this stunning 5-bedroom, 2.5 bath open-concept home is brimming with charm and original details.
Enter through the vestibule, a welcome buffer from the elements, and notice the original exterior and interior door featuring iconic South Philly rolled glass. Immediately apparent are the gleaming hardwood floors that continue throughout, the marble windowsills, the 10-foot ceilings, and the 16-foot width of the house. The size and the abundance of natural light showcase the substantial first floor living area. The living room with the decorative fireplace flows directly into the ample dining room with a coveted first floor powder room tucked off to the right. The completely upgraded kitchen is tastefully appointed with white custom cabinetry, a marble countertop with breakfast bar, subway tile backsplash, divided farmhouse sink, and newer appliances including a stainless-steel gas range and hood. Beyond the kitchen lies a flex room with access to the outside. It is currently being utilized as a seating/reading area but would also make a wonderful breakfast nook.
Follow the wrought iron scrollwork banister to the second floor where you will find 3 large bedrooms and a full bathroom. The bathroom features custom tile work with a full bathtub, separate shower, and oversized sink. The bedroom at the front of the house features a newly built custom closet and built-in desk.
The third floor currently serves as the owners’ suite with an expansive bedroom at the top of the stairs that features an en suite bath. The middle room has been converted to a walk-in closet with laundry center, and the front bedroom features a gorgeous exposed brick wall and industrial shelving system.
The full-sized, open, and dry lower level has been finished for use as a play space, rec room, and storage. To add to ease of living, the house has newer mechanical systems, no knob-and-tube wiring, and the electrical has been upgraded to 200 amps.
The owners are also offering to install a new Mitsubishi mini-split AC system prior to settlement with a full-price offer.
