This charming house sits on an extra-wide lot, making for an open and spacious feeling not often found in rowhomes. The current owner has continued to make updates to the 2008 renovation, including improved electrical, plumbing and replacing the roof, while restoring historic details like random-width pine floors throughout, classic wooden stair banister, lovely millwork and a built-in armoire. A pretty tiled foyer with glass-paneled door leads to spacious living room featuring high ceilings, a wide archway that opens into the dining room with wainscoting and two large windows overlooking the breezeway. The well designed L-shaped kitchen has French doors that open to the side of the home allowing for Western light. Oak cabinets, stainless steel appliances and pretty mosaic tile backsplash. Just behind the kitchen is a large powder room that can also serve as a mudroom with its door to the patio. The second floor includes 3 bedrooms and a restored original hall armoire, with damask wallpaper on the inside. The three bedrooms all have high ceilings and large windows, with the spacious master at the front of the house with Southern exposure and a pear tree. The large bathroom off the hall features a ceramic tile floor and tub surround, vanity and a window allowing for privacy while overlooking the yard. This location is close to all Fairmount and Brewerytown neighborhoods have to offer - Whole Foods, Target, shopping, museums, restaurants like Rybrew, Crime and Punishment Brewing Co. and the new Green Eggs Cafe. Easy access to Fairmount Park, Kelly Drive, the Wissahickon, Center City and public transportation. While not official parking, there is a lot owned by the Philadelphia Housing Authority directly behind the house and can be accessed through the patio gate. The Seller has been parking on this lot for the last 10 years as did the previous owner. Seller has been trying to purchase the lot with support from our local Councilwoman as it is too small for development.
