Centrally located on one of the few remaining Cobblestone Streets in the heart of Society Hill, this beautiful Four-Story brick home sits within easy walking distance of the many historical sites- Washington Square Park, Headhouse Square and Independence Mall. This peaceful and quiet home is tastefully updated, has hardwood floors throughout, and the open first floor displays an expansive cook's kitchen situated between a cozy living room and dining room. A sliding glass door leads to a private rear patio, shaded by a Japanese Dogwood, Magnolia and fruit-bearing Pear Tree, as well as a variety of ornamental plants. An enclosed vestibule and powder room complete the main level. The Second Floor includes a large bedroom with full "ensuite" tile bathroom, enclosed Washer and Dryer, and a large BONUS Room currently set up as a comfortable entertainment/family room. On the Third Floor, there are two generous sized bedrooms both with access to the large full tile bathroom with whirlpool tub. The finished, carpeted Lower Level / Basement provides ample space for a Home Office or play room, with a separating door leading to a generously sized storage area. A covered side alley accessible by separate entrance from the front of the home, or walk-through access from the back patio, is the perfect space for storing bicycles, barbecue grill, patio furniture and other outdoor items. This home is extremely bright and welcoming with tons of light coming from the 20, yes 20 windows. Yet, what makes this home really special is the blending of original character with the updated style and conveniences modern living requires. The warmth and design of the original stairways, railings and banisters, the original floors?all give a glimpse to the past and fully function for our lifestyles now. The home has been extremely well maintained and is a true gem in a highly sought-after neighborhood. A few paces to the 5th Street Acme, makes grocery shopping very convenient. And only a half block from the nationally recognized blue ribbon McCall K-8 School!
