5007 Chestnut Street



You've found it! That impossible to find move-in-ready West Philly charmer with historic touches and a front and back yard. After all, you're moving here to enjoy the green space this neighborhood is known for. It's time to claim some for yourself! Be welcomed into a beautiful sun porch full of stained glass. Utilize this space as a home library, greenhouse, a personal herb garden, or your own mini forest. There are so many sun-soaked possibilities. Just beyond, you'll be bowled over by the charming, double-depth living and dining space full of original details and enhanced by super high ceilings. Continue your flow to the modern stainless and stone kitchen that opens into a sunny garden. The abundance of green space continues outside the kitchen, past the powder room, where you'll enjoy dining and grilling with friends and neighbors. Because this home is semi-detached, your guests can circulate from the front to back and around the sides. You'll love the flow and so will the young ones who can run literally around and through and around. Plus, you can easily stow your bikes, grills, and other receptacles. The basement stairs are nicely tucked away. Once found, they'll take you to a HUGE basement with tons of storage (enough to keep an active bowling alley working), laundry and updated mechanicals. Upstairs on the second level, you'll enjoy four quiet bedrooms surrounded by abundant windows that you'll only find in a semi-detached home, ample closets, and the high ceiling theme continues. You can choose either of the large front or rear bedrooms as your master. Either are equidistant from the sparkling hall bath. The width of this amazing house affords a ton of possibilities and uses for the second floor bedrooms. Think about combining two bedrooms to create a master suite with walk in closet, designed to your style and preferences. All this and an abundant variety of amenities to curate your life within a mile. Walking and biking distance to Baltimore Avenue shops and street life, and fantastic access to public transit, and University City's other amenities. You'll love your life here on a great block with wonderful neighbors. What more could you ask for? Whatever it is, bring it.
