Welcome to this charming three bedroom, one bathroom home, updated with a vintage chic homage to the home's original construction!
This gem is only two blocks to the great restaurants of Passyunk Avenue! Walk into the cozy, tiled vestibule and hang your coat on the handmade upcycled coat rack before you admire the "reclaimed barn-wood" laminate flooring throughout the entire home. You'll find great light showcasing the artistically exposed brick in the living room and a gorgeous hanging light fixture above your dining area.
A matching surface mounted fixture lights the kitchen, but that's hardly the star of this room. A vintage ice box and range oven, though non-functioning are original to the home, and make incredible conversation pieces, but even better storage solutions. Behind them, an accent wall has been affixed with pieces of vintage crates tying together the ambiance, along with a vintage, wall-mounted hand crank coffee grinder and antiqued coffee cart. Other touches include custom patina copper counter tops, hanging dish rack, pot-rack and newer appliances selected to complement the kitchen's throwback spirit.
Off the kitchen is a very private, concrete patio with newly painted cinder block wall and wooden door to back alley, great for a quiet drink. Gas grill can be negotiated with sale. Walk to the top of the painted hardwood stairs to the second floor and find the first bedroom. This room has been expanded, and is bigger than its counterparts on the rest of the block. A built in desk is nestled between two closets. The custom window is brand new. More built in storage above!
The second bedroom has one closet, and would make a great nursery.
The master bedroom is roomy and bright, with two built-in closets, and more built in storage compartments above.
The updated bathroom boasts a custom-made vanity, with porcelain trough sink set on Singer sewing machine base, custom medicine cabinet, and tiled floor. The basement is unfinished but dry, and has laundry area with newer washer, workbench and lighted, built-in storage room.
