Located on a lovely tree-lined street in South Kensington, one of Philadelphia Magazine's "neighborhoods to watch", this fantastic, 9-year-young home with two car parking features a well-designed floor plan with large, airy rooms and tons of natural light.

Enter into a warm and welcoming living room with soaring ceilings, recessed lighting, floor-to-ceiling windows and gleaming maple hardwood floors. Wider than most at 17' feet, you immediately feel a sense of space and light not offered in most traditional row homes. Unique architectural elements and details are found throughout the home. The open-concept dining room features a vaulted ceiling separating it from the living space and offers plenty of room to host a large dinner party. The kitchen is every home's hub and this kitchen does not disappoint with stylish granite counter tops, custom maple cabinets, stainless steel appliances, sleek tile backsplash with glass tile detail and an island with plenty of space for food preparation and gathering with family and friends. A powder room and coat closet round out the first floor. Sliding doors from the kitchen invite the outside in and lead to a sunny patio with custom pavers, great for summer evenings barbecuing and dining al fresco. The home's 100' lot is street-to-street which allows for coveted gated, two car parking, a rarity in the city. The basement is finished and is perfect for a home gym or theater room. On the second floor you'll find two spacious and sunny bedrooms with wall-to-wall carpeting and a full modern bath with Jacuzzi tub.

The crowing jewel of the home is the third floor sun-soaked Master Suite with soaring ceilings, a separate reading/dressing room, plenty of closets and a spa-like bath featuring a stall shower and double vanity. Sliders lead to a third floor deck which boasts sweeping views of the city. South Kensington is a quiet neighborhood sandwiched between bustling Fishtown and Northern Liberties, both vibrant residential communities with an eclectic mix of restaurants, shops and cafes. You'll enjoy brunch at The Front Street Cafe and North Third, drinks at the 700 Club and Dos Segundos, dinner at Wm. Mulherin's Sons, catching a concert at The Piazza and strolling Liberties Walk and Penn Treaty Park. The Girard El stop is steps away and public transit is plentiful. Easy, stylish and convenient living. Start planning your housewarming party now – you have found your home!
