Property Details for 919 S 48th St

This property is no longer available to rent or buy. This description is from March 14, 2014
This impeccably maintained historic home has a floorplan made for entertaining and offers room after room of jaw-dropping original details--curved plaster, unpainted chestnut woodwork throughout, intact pocket doors, skylight and oversized windows get the list started. The owners expanded the doorway from the living room to the dining room to create an open floor plan and opened the butler's pantry to create a unique and dramatic architectural focal point for the space. The smartly designed kitchen with Mexican tile floor and complementing ceramic backsplash opens to the large rear yard... and covered porch, custom crafted by Louis Tannen with built-in seating. In the winter you can entertain in front of the woodburning fireplace in the living room, and come spring you'll want to take the party outdoors to enjoy the mature landscaping, which includes a fruit-producing cherry tree, grapevine, dogwood tree and David Austin roses. There is, of course, a first-floor powder room for guests. Follow the original curved banister to the second floor with master suite'large bedroom with decorative fireplace, a connected middle bedroom and bath that also opens to the hallway'and a rear parlor/bedroom with gorgeous decorative mantel and hearth. On the third floor are four more bedrooms, one with a sweet Juliet balcony, and a hall bath with a massive original built-in storage unit. As if there isn't enough space on the three main floors, there is a staircase to the attic, which has standing-height ceilings'finish it to build an eighth (!) bedroom, a second home office or an amazing playroom, or just use it for storage. Behind the scenes is a new porch roof, high-efficiency HVAC, new chimney liner and totally repainted exterior trim. All of this on a great University City block smack-dab between the 13 and 34 trolley lines, on the Penn bus route, and an easy walk to Mariposa Food Co-op, Vietnam Cafe, Dock Street Brewery, Aksum Cafe, Clark Park and everything else Baltimore Avenue has to offer.
