Priced out of Fishtown? Think West Philly is too far? This meticulously renovated and restored Victorian home is the right size, in the right place, at the right time. Just outside Brewerytown, Francisville and the Temple area, and close to Center City and Fairmount Park, this home is on a pretty tree-lined block and sits directly across from a park. The thoughtful renovation carefully blends old with new, as seen in the contemporary light fixtures, chef's kitchen and hotel-like bathrooms. The "wow"s start at the grand entry, with the marble tiled vestibule, pretty wood banister and gorgeous original wide-plank hardwood floors that run throughout. The living room is spacious enough to include a dining area and has a decorative fireplace, large front window with original shutters and floor-to-ceiling rear window. Down the hall is the dreamy eat-in kitchen with pale gray J&K cabinetry, dark granite countertops and stainless steel for days: subway tile backsplash, farmhouse sink with gooseneck faucet and of course the appliances, including a GE Profile slide-in range. No space is wasted, as evidenced by the additional pantry, closet under the front stairs, and the sweetest powder room tucked under the rear staircase. There's a mudroom with laundry hookups off the kitchen, and the rear patio is fully decked with planting beds around the perimeter for high style and low maintenance. The second floor has three spacious bedrooms; the largest is at the rear and has windows on two walls, a square bay and decorative marble fireplace. The bedroom at the front has dual closets and a large window with original shutters overlooking the park. The bathroom has pretty wood-grain tile floors and walk-in shower surround, a built-in storage cabinet and an upcycled dresser for the vanity. The third floor houses three more good-sized bedrooms and would make the ultimate master retreat. The huge hall bath has a deep soaking tub with porcelain tile surround, granite-topped vanity and a large closet. The middle bedroom could be an amazing dressing room, while the front room has dual closets and an arched nook with built-in shelf, perfect for a vanity or perhaps a bar (nightcap, anyone?). The beauty of this home is more than skin deep, as the current owner replaced the roof, all the windows and mechanical systems and installed central air. With homes in nearby neighborhoods selling for twice this amount and more, make the smart investment now and say hello to your forever home.
