This Charming Vintage inspired incredibly cute home offers an exciting floor plan with a variety of surprises. Approach the handsome brick facade and marble steps and be welcomed by a beautiful wood door with dental molding and etched glass. Enter via an adorable foyer with plate glass door perfect for keeping the weather out and the pets in. From there, right away, you'll notice the soaring ceilings, soft bright natural light from the extra tall windows (due to the ceiling height), formal dining room, fun kitchen with pass through window, and sweet coat closet/indoor gardening shed. Out back find the quiet, private back patio with built in flower beds perfect for an herb garden to flavor the festive cook outs you'll enjoy right after you install your strings of cafe lights. Venture upstairs via the center staircase that allows extra wall space for furnishings or hanging art. On the second floor you'll discover two surprisingly spacious bedrooms both the entire width of the house. The front bedroom features a very large multi-depth closet. The back bedroom has windows on two sides. In the center there is a double width hall closet and a spacious bathroom with a very cool vanity area. You can't miss the unique, original and well-preserved moldings and light fixtures. Along with such great windows that are perfect for house plants and daylighting, these are few and far between anymore. The basement provides ample storage, a convenient half bath and laundry facility. You'll love the nearby neighborhood amenities as well. Did you know you can play bicycle polo at the newly refurbished Cione Playground? In the summer enjoy the swimmo that has family and adult hours plus swimming lessons for all. Right across the street is the new Pineville Inn that originated in Bucks County and found it's second home right near yours. You'll love the fried chicken. Two notoriously famous Philadelphia eating establishments are also just nearby, Stocks Bakery with its scrumptious pound cake, and Tacconelli’s for its best and most exclusive pizza in Philly. Street parking is easy here because of the proximity to Lehigh Ave where you can visit the Green Rock and get some "Gritty Fries" while the kiddos are at Portside Art Academy. You can't get more convenient to the I-95 North and South entrances, to the IGA the best grocery store in the city. Shhhhh....it's a little known secret. Public transit options include direct bus routs to Temple U and CCP as well as the refurbished antique trolley that takes you all the way across the city to the Zoo. Walk to all things Fishtown and Port Richmond. You'll need to after being so close to so many yummy food options. Oh and Planet Fitness is practically across the street. Thank goodness.
