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, Nord, 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 821 McClellan Street. Let's begin at the curb: the exterior cornice and window trim have been painstakingly stripped, restored and painted, arched transom window opened to reveal its former glory and arts and crafts-style front door painted a cheerful yellow. Southern exposure sunlight floods the home and the cool tile vestibule is the perfect place to kick off your shoes. Once inside, you'll love the light-filled living room/dining room boasting hardwood floors and decorated with contemporary colors and hues. The kitchen is clean and bright with newer appliances, a stylish glass tile backsplash and soapstone countertops. Pour a glass of wine and head out back to your wonderfully designed yard with a pergola canopy of mature plantings, serene gardens, a private fence and potted plants. Bask in the sun and dream of summer days gardening and nights grilling and dining al fresco. Upstairs you'll find three sunny bedrooms and a beautiful period white ceramic tile bath with marble accents. Close access to the SEPTA's Broad Street subway line via the Tasker-Morris stop and a number of buses provide 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!
