This uber-charming house sits on an extra-wide lot, making for an open and breezy vibe not often found in rowhomes. The current owner has continued to make improvements to the 2008 renovation, including updating electrical and plumbing and replacing the roof, while maintaining historic details like random-width pine floors throughout, classic wooden stair rail, lovely millwork and a stately built-in armoire. A pretty tiled vestibule with glass-paneled door leads into the spacious living room featuring high ceilings and a wide archway that flows into the dining room with tasteful wainscoting and two large windows overlooking the breezeway. The kitchen checks all the boxes of smart design, starting with the lovely French doors that open to the side of the home as opposed to the rear, allowing not just for great western light but also an efficient L-shaped layout with oak cabinets, stainless steel appliances and pretty mosaic tile backsplash. Just behind the kitchen is a large powder room that can also serve as a mudroom with its door to the patio. While not official off-street parking, there is space for two cars in the lot behind the house, and there is direct access via the patio gate. On the second floor, you're greeted by the restored original armoire, with damask wallpaper adding flair to the inside. The three bedrooms all have high ceilings and large windows, with the spacious master at the front of the house offering a view of a pear tree. The large bathroom at the end of the hall has ceramic tile flooring and tub surround, a crisp white vanity and a strategically located window allowing for privacy while overlooking the yard. 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 Rybrew, Brewerytown Beats, Crime and Punishment Brewing Co. and Blue Jay Diner; outdoorsy types will appreciate the proximity to Fairmount Park.
