Property Description

Handsome 5-bedroom twin in prime West Philly location!! The front porch is tucked away behind manicured shrubbery, with a scenic view of the Market-Frankford El Line. There's a thoughtful motorcycle/scooter parking pad that doubles as the perfect spot for recycling bins. Enter through the grand vestibule with mahogany wainscoting and period wallpaper to be greeted by historic details such as etched glass transoms, decorative mantels, built-ins, curved walls and archways. The oversized windows let in lovely natural light, highlighting the gleaming hardwood floors and plaster walls. The aerie living room and formal dining room boast high ceilings and loads of character while the sweet kitchen offers plenty of storage and workspace. Conveniently located, is a set of back stairs leading to the second level and a powder room with laundry just beyond the kitchen. Outside, you'll find an expansive backyard with paved seating area, mature trees and raised garden beds. The full basement offers plenty of storage and a workbench for DIY projects. Basement photos avail upon request. The second level is made up of three large bedrooms with tons of storage and charm. There’s a stylish hall bathroom with custom vanity, claw foot tub and subway tile. The third level consists of two more sizable bedrooms with lovely views and a second full bathroom with a rain shower in the hall. Steps to public transportation and local parks! Just around the corner from 52nd Street shops and restaurants. Minutes to University City schools and hospitals and a short train ride to Center City!!
