This spacious, well-maintained home with two outdoor spaces is on a fantastic block in the heart of East Passyunk. The main level is completely open with oak floors running throughout, high ceilings with recessed lighting, a pretty original banister and plenty of room for designated spaces for living and dining. The thoughtfully designed kitchen has stainless steel appliances, counter space for days, including a breakfast bar, tons of maple cabinetry, built-in wine storage and space for a bar or coffee nook tucked beneath a pretty arched transom window. Sliding doors lead out to the L-shaped rear patio with space for bike storage on the side; around back is your typical South Philly "yard" with space for a grill, patio set and maybe some hanging planters from Urban Jungle, which is right around the corner. Up on the second floor the master bedroom has two closets plus built-in shelving, a Juliet balcony and en-suite bath with travertine tile walk-in shower and pedestal sink. The rear bedroom is slightly smaller yet still a good size, offers plenty of closet space and has the added bonus of access to a private outdoor deck. The hall bathroom features a ceramic tile shower surround, whirlpool tub and pretty white vanity. The basement is partially finished--great for a den or play area, plus additional storage and laundry area. In addition to being around the corner from all the bars, shops and restaurants Passyunk Ave has to offer, it's only a few blocks to the Broad Street line for easy access to Center City. But once you get settled in this neighborhood, you probably won't want (or need!) to leave much.
