Not all rehabs are created equal, and this right-size house is proof positive. This lovely porchfront rowhome, which sits right off Baltimore Ave, will win you over the moment you step through the pretty red front door. The first floor is completely open and features hand-scraped wood floors, high ceilings with recessed lighting and plenty of space for a designated dining area. The kitchen features porcelain tile floors, Forevermark cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops with stainless undermount sink, and a unique porcelain and mosaic glass tile backsplash. Out back is a patio large enough for a grill and patio set plus extra room to build your own planting beds below. A turned staircase with neutral gray carpet and a contemporary wrought iron rail leads up to the second floor. The sunny master bedroom features a large bay window, two good-size mirrored closets and a Pinterest-worthy barn door salvaged from another West Philly renovation, leading to the en-suite bath with dark wood vanity and stand-up shower with full wall porcelain tile surround. There's one more good-sized back bedroom and a decent-sized middle bedroom, both with good storage, and a nicely appointed hall bath with granite-topped vanity, porcelain tile wall and shower surround with pretty glass inlay, a deep soaking tub and a skylight. In additional to all the lovely finishes, the home also has completely new mechanicals, all new windows, central air and a finished basement for added living space with a separate area with laundry hookups. Cedar Park and the 34 trolley are right around the corner, as well as local faves like Dock Street Brewing Company, Mariposa Co-op, the newly opened Amari's and summer pop-up Taco Angeleno.
