The only home with a roofdeck on the coveted cherry tree-lined "best block" of lovely Aspen Street, this c. 1876 home features stunning original details throughout along with tasteful renovations and upgrades like a 10-zone indoor/outdoor SpeakerCraft audio system. Pictures simply can't do the curved plasterwork, crown molding, wainscoting, original woodwork, exquisitely detailed inlaid floors and marble work justice; their understated elegance coupled with an abundance of natural light exude comfort and warmth. Perfectly scaled for everyday living, the house doesn't have the "dead space" of most historic homes, and each room serves a purpose, from the expanded kitchen nook with skylights to the master suite. Entertain on the large brick-paved patio off the first floor or finish your day on the deck, with its panoramic view of the city. Don't miss this rare find that perfectly marries original charm with modern amenities. An easy walk to Art Museum Area dining and shopping and super-convenient to Center City.
