Formerly known as the Wildey Mansion, this magnificently updated 4-bedroom 2-bath restored corner Victorian townhouse in highly desirable Northern Liberties was originally constructed by a local factory owner in 1917. This home has recently undergone a whole house electrical rewire and upgraded 200-amp service, refinished hardwood floors, Farrow & Ball paint throughout, new silicone roof, and exterior brick repointing and painting. Dramatic architectural turret windows and original period details such as crown molding, in-lay hardwood floors, high ceilings, anaglypta walls throughout all hallways (this is a beautiful, embossed wall covering popular in Victorian homes), as well as stained glass and tile work throughout. Enter through a formal tiled vestibule with a stained glass transom. The vestibule leads to a formal foyer where you can enter the parlor/living room through pocket doors. The living room is adorned with a wood mantle and mirror, chandelier, and original leaded glass windows. Through the foyer you can access a large dining room with stained glass French doors, service access (back staircase) to the 2nd floor level, a decorative mantle, and walk through to an eat-in kitchen. The kitchen has radiant heated terracotta tile floor, polished granite counters, wood cabinets, stainless appliances, a 5-burner gas range with range hood, and an area for a breakfast bar. The kitchen has access to a brick paved side yard perfect for entertaining and outdoor grilling. The side yard can also be modified into parking for your very own convenient off street private parking. The 2nd floor of this home has three bedrooms and the 3rd floor contains the master suite. Each room on the 2nd and 3rd floors has its own personality and unique features including stained glass, curved original trim work, mantles, solid wood built-ins, and unique architectural features. There is a large updated hall bath on the 2nd floor with subway tile walls and octagon tile floors, pedestal sink, glass enclosed shower, and a linen closet. The 3rd floor has the master suite and the 2nd full bath. The 3rd floor hallway leads to roof access (can accommodate future roof deck). There is radiator heat throughout with gorgeous decorative iron radiators, dual-zoned central air, a full unfinished dry-as-a-bone basement/crawlspace that runs the entire length of the home with high ceilings and a laundry area. If you like a home with old school charm that shows like new and has all modern amenities, then this is the home for you!
