If you subscribe to the old adage, "location, location, location", it really doesn't get better than this: Passyunk Square! Marrying the very best of old and new, you'll love the neighborhood's strong Old World roots coupled with a contemporary and trendy feel not replicated anywhere else in the city. Recently named one of Food & Wine magazine's 10 Best Foodie Streets In America, you'll enjoy Passyunk's cutting-edge restaurants such as Fond, Noord, Will, Birra and Stateside, bars such as the POPE and Stogie Joe's, and classics, Marra's and Mr. Martino's. Strolling the Avenue, you'll also find eclectic boutiques, coffee shops, vintage clothing stores, an urban garden store, yoga studios and a private specialty grocer.
Nestled on a quiet tree-lined street, just blocks from the Square's heart, the Singing Fountain, hides 812 Cross Street. Let's begin at the curb: beautiful, overflowing flower boxes fill the windows and the door is delightfully painted a cheery blue. Once inside, you'll love the light-filled living room/dining room boasting Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, recessed lighting and decorated with contemporary colors and hues. The kitchen is a chef's dream with newer stainless steel LG and Jenn-Air appliances, a stylish slate backsplash and floors, brand new quartz countertops illuminated by under-cabinet lighting, and custom cherry cabinets.
Pour a glass of wine and head out back to your wonderfully designed brick patio with flower boxes, a private bamboo fence and twinkling lights. Bask in the sun and dream of autumn days gardening and nights grilling and dining al fresco. Upstairs you'll find three sunny bedrooms, two with exposed brick details, and a beautiful marble bath with skylight. The Master bedroom impresses with beamed ceilings. This home was completely rehabbed in 2008 and boasts central air, an efficient on-demand tankless hot water heater and newer windows. The HVAC ducts and vents were professionally cleaned in July 2016. Easy access to SEPTA's Broad Street subway line via the Tasker-Morris stop provides a quick commute to the sports stadiums and Center City. This handsome home exudes comfort and modern sophistication while honoring the charm and original details that make it so special. Get your housewarming invitations ready – we have found your home!
