Get the space, both indoors and out, of a move-up home without leaving the city with this lovely Germantown twin featuring sweet original details. The seller has made some upgrades, including replacement windows throughout and a remodeled kitchen, making it move-in ready and leaving room along the way to add your own design and personality as you grow into your forever home. Enter through the enclosed porch into a classic Victorian vestibule with penny tile floors, wainscoting and intact transom window into a wide-open living room with decorative fireplace, original oak floors with inlay and a window seat beneath pretty leaded glass windows. French doors with original beveled glass and hardware open into the formal dining room with a bay window and storage closet. The spacious kitchen at the rear has ceramic tile floors, wood cabinets in a smart L-shaped layout, and new charcoal stainless steel appliances--it's not fancy but it's well beyond functional. Off the kitchen is a mudroom, perfect for storing tools, bikes and seasonal gear. With five spacious bedrooms spread out over the top two floors, all featuring large windows (three bays on the second floor alone!) and ample storage, there~s plenty of room to grow. The top floor's dormer windows and vaulted ceiling will add charm to any design scheme. The full bath is perfectly situated on the second floor and features a soaking tub with ceramic tile surround, room to add shelving or linen storage, and a large window--frosted for privacy of course. The basement, with its good ceiling height and bonus "throne room" setup, has the potential to be an awesome finished living space, or leave it as is for all your storage/workspace needs. The paved yard can be enjoyed in any season; there~s room for raised planting beds, a grill, even a fire pit. Awbury Arboretum and Wissahickon Creek are nearby for all your hiking, biking and nature needs. The area's always-expanding food scene is not to be missed, while Regional Rail is close by when you need a taste of downtown.
