Technically a flip, this home was renovated as a true labor of love by one of our most thoughtful and hands-on clients. The end result is the perfect blend of original charm and just-right updates in a great North Philly location--a forever home at a first-time buyer's price. From the light fixtures to the tile selections to the custom countertops, each design choice sets this one apart from the cookie-cutter standard and contributes to the overall warmth of the home. A lovely porch opens up through an original double door with transom to an open vestibule into the living area with original hardwood floors with inlaid border that continue throughout the home. The living room is focused around a pretty tiled decorative fireplace, and the floorplan allows for a dining area on either side of the centrally located kitchen. The kitchen features custom cabinetry painted in a unique powder blue that pops against the Arte tile backsplash and concrete countertops. A pretty powder room completes the first floor with ceramic tile floors, wainscoting with funky wallpaper accent, and pedestal sink. The upstairs has two full baths; each has its own personality with timeless tile selections and custom-built shelving and storage. One acts as a master bath with an extra-wide walk-in shower to accompany the larger bedroom at the rear, which has a walk-in closet and lovely bay window. The other two bedrooms are a nice size, with good light and closet space. A skylight on each level accents the bright and airy floorplan and highlights the home's features. Laundry is in the basement, where the eight-foot ceiling height makes it a great workshop or DIY HQ. You'll get to know the block captain and other long-term owners on this pretty tree-lined block, which offers the perk of overlooking the newly renovated seven-acre school grounds, without the pick-up/drop-off mayhem: the actual entrance is over a quarter of a mile away. This home is in a great Tioga location with lots of development happening thanks to its easy access to two BSL stations, Roosevelt Blvd, Temple University and hospitals, and multiple bus lines.
