They are grand and distinctive but also warm and inviting. They are unique but timeless. They are studied in architecture schools but remain a signature of East Falls. They are the "studio" homes gracing the 3400 block of Midvale Ave and 3455 is a fine example. Light pours into the home through the 2-story front leaded glass windows flooding the exceptionally large living room with its 14' vaulted ceiling and charming paneled fireplace at the far end. A 2nd floor balcony overlooks this area. The home also includes a formal dining room with a corner cupboard with original leaded glass doors and a well planned newer kitchen with rich paint tones blending with the cabinets and counters. Upstairs the main bedroom on the 2nd level is adjoined by a full bath. French doors from this room open to the garage roof which is ready for a deck. There are two additional bedrooms and an updated hall bath on the 3rd floor. The finished basement is a delight with its roomy family room. The basement also includes laundry and utility space plus a quarter bath. This home has been meticulously maintained and shows beautifully. There are lovely hardwood floors, many freshly painted areas, many newer windows, central air on the first floor and split units upstairs. The grounds are lovely with rich shrubs, plantings, a sitting area in the front and more terraced green space in the rear. Beside the one car garage there is additional parking for one car in the rear alley. 3455 Midvale is located in the Tudor East Falls Historic District. It is convenient to two train lines, the buses and is just 15 minutes from center city. Simply wonderful!
