Beauty, warmth and exquisite craftsmanship are the hallmarks of this classic East Falls home nestled on a lovely, tree-lined street. Let's begin at the curb: the front porch is wide and inviting and an ideal place to enjoy a cool summer evening chatting with neighbors. Classic shutters, hand-scraped wood decking and a custom hand-crafted flower box offer fantastic curb appeal. You'll enter into a sunny living room with original hardwood floors, dental crown molding and custom built-in bookshelves. Next is the dining room with recessed lighting and plenty of room to host a large dinner party. The heart of the home is the kitchen and it is here that you'll enjoy entertaining and gathering. The kitchen features painted white cabinets, stainless steel appliances and plenty of counter space for food preparation. Upstairs find two sunny bedrooms with original wide plank hardwood flooring and tons of natural light and a lovely, large bathroom with original cast iron tub. The crowning jewel of the home is the wonderfully landscaped yard with brick pavers engulfed in a canopy of mature trees. Find custom pergola, serene gardens, a private fence and a dining area with slate tile. Bask in the sun and dream of late summer days gardening and nights grilling and dining al fresco. East Falls is nestled between the Schuylkill River and Fairmount Park's Wissahickon Valley and offers a vibrant residential community and an eclectic mix of restaurants, shops and cafes.
