This lovely owner-renovated home in a perfect location overlooking Cedar Park is the ultimate example of why West Philly is the best Philly. Starting from scratch when they purchased, the sellers have taken care of updating the inside and out, including new mechanicals, dual-zone HVAC, new windows, new kitchen and baths as well as newly installed hardwood floors on the first and second floors. While providing all the creature comforts, they have also maintained that authentic West Philly vibe; it’s Victorian without being stuffy, modern without being showy and comfortable without being shabby. With three levels of high ceilings, large windows and good-size rooms, there’s plenty of living space and flexible floorplan options, starting with the totally open main floor. In addition to the standard living room there’s a sweet little reading nook overlooking the porch, and the large kitchen allows for barstools at the counter to supplement the more formal dining area. On the second floor, the front bedroom with decorative fireplace, French doors and pretty bay window would make a great den, while the rear bedroom is also spacious and has an original built-in armoire and oversized windows overlooking the yard. The bathroom on this floor has a walk-in shower with porcelain tile surround and dual showerheads as well as two built-ins for linen storage. The third level, with original hardwood floors, has two bedrooms and could be used as the ultimate master retreat. The front bedroom has an awesome vaulted ceiling with custom skylight, picture rail, tasteful glimpses of exposed brick and a huge closet. The sizable bathroom has a whirlpool tub with stone tile surround and convenient stackable washer and dryer. The basement, accessed from the kitchen, has definite potential for finishing with its good ceiling height or can be used as-is for storage or a workshop. There’s plenty of room out back to exercise that green thumb and entertain al fresco. Enjoy views of Cedar Park right from your front porch, while all the shopping and restaurants along Baltimore Ave are at your fingertips.
