Description

Monroe St. in Queen Village is a magical place to live! We welcome you to this turn of the century 4-story brick front home with 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, with one of a kind architectural details, and a spacious tranquil garden patio. Every room offers something unique and special. A must see to fully appreciate. Enter into a main floor foyer where you can hang your hat, kick off your shoes, and leave your day at the door. You will be gently led inside by the view of the garden through the glass doors located in the rear of the home. Yes, it is visible from the front door! The foyer entry also provides access to a full basement, a convenient main floor powder room, and a huge pantry alcove with built-in shelving. To the rear of the 1st floor is the kitchen offering a full appliance package including a backless gas range, as well as a front load stacked washer and dryer, built-in shelving as well as plentiful space for food prep and furnishings. The most special feature for this room is the 2 story ceiling height highlighted by a dramatic chandelier. This room is designed with a near full glass 2 story wall that is incredible. The 2nd floor is a complete living suite with a loft overlooking the garden and the kitchen. The loft has a large living room, a beautiful custom metal handrail, and will be your favorite place to unwind every day. There is a full bath with plenty of shelving, soaking tub/shower, and a spacious bedroom with exposed brick. The 3rd floor bedroom also has a loft type feel. This room includes the original brick fireplace and offers more than enough space to be used as a bedroom with room to spare for a sitting area or office. The 4th floor bedroom has an A-frame ceiling that follows the recessed dormer windows. This architectural element has been the inspiration for some of the most beautiful rooms for home designers. Storage is a breeze in the full basement should you need it, but this basement is really special with the original exposed arched brick work, natural light, and it offers many uses if you desire a workshop or creative space. Other features include hardwood floors throughout, central air, multiple fabulous levels, a private outdoor covered alley for storage, and an unmatched location. Walking distance to popular 2nd St restaurants and shopping and a short distance to Penn’s Landing Marina, Spruce St Harbor Park, Moshulu and The Deck Philly. We excitedly invite you for a tour.
