This one-of-a-kind home has a whole-house skylight, a working fireplace and amazing multiple outdoor spaces. The charm grabs you from the start, with the pretty landscaped front garden, spacious seating area on the porch, floor-to-ceiling windows framed by wood shutters and a welcoming peach paint that makes it really stand out from its neighbors–this porch alone could be a featured listing on Airbnb New Orleans. The wide-open first floor features oak floors that run all the way through, a woodburning fireplace, built-in shelving and clever display nooks, recessed lighting and a designated dining area. The kitchen has recently been updated with brand-new white cabinetry, butcher block countertops, stainless steel appliances and pretty mosaic tile backsplash; there’s inset shelving that would make a perfect spice rack and a closet that could make a great pantry. There’s room to add a prep table or breakfast nook, or simply leave the space open for unobstructed views of the French doors leading out to the large rear yard. With a paved area for a patio set and plenty of planting beds to exercise your green thumb, this unique outdoor space calls to mind the term “urban oasis” but is anything but cliche. Upstairs, which has bamboo floors throughout, there are two good-sized bedrooms; the rear has a large closet and access to a deck overlooking the yard. The master has two deep mirrored closets, three corners of built-in shelving and a large interior picture window letting in natural light from the center skylight. They share a spacious hall bath with pretty white subway tile and large vanity with transom window above also connecting back to the skylight. The basement provides great storage, laundry area and utility sink. This home sits on a picturesque block with easy access not just to the best of the Art Museum area—Fairmount Ave shopping and dining, summertime pop-ups at Eakins Oval and of course all the museums lining the Parkway—but also all that Brewerytown has to offer, like Ryebrew, Brewerytown Beats, Crime and Punishment Brewing Co. and Blue Jay Diner; outdoorsy types will appreciate the proximity to Fairmount Park.
