A timeless blend of period details and modern amenities are showcased in this picture-perfect residence, circa 1920. The quintessential East Passyunk charm of this home begins at the curb with a freshly painted brick facade, a striking door with vintage hardware, and a Persian Ironwood tree with its stunning autumn foliage and unique bark patterning. A beautiful and decorative original tile vestibule is a fitting invitation and once inside, a light-filled living room with an exposed brick accent wall makes a grand and welcoming impression. The home dazzles with open, sun-drenched spaces and offers classic simplicity, design-sensitive renovations, and classic vintage restorations. The living room boasts original hardwood floors with a walnut inlay border and a decorative and whimsically painted pink brick fireplace. The dining room features a mid-century modern-inspired chandelier and easily seats a dinner party of six and the kitchen offers new stainless steel appliances and painted cabinets. A door from the kitchen invites the outside in and serves as an extension of the home. The private patio's fence adorned with grapes and hops is the perfect place for a cup of coffee on a cool autumn morning or dining al fresco in the evenings. A convenient powder room rounds out the first floor. Upstairs, find three bedrooms, the primary with a fun Sputnik chandelier and an Eastlake built-in closet with antique mirrors. The bathroom is delightfully vintage and charming with 1950s retro tiling. This lovely home is located just steps from vibrant and eclectic East Passyunk Avenue. Marrying the very best of old and new, you’ll love the neighborhood’s strong Old World roots coupled with a vibrant and contemporary feel not replicated anywhere else in the city. Recently named one of Food & Wine Magazine’s 10 Best Foodie Streets in America, the Avenue boasts some of South Philadelphia’s oldest and most authentic and traditional restaurants, cozy BYOBs, fun gastropubs, and award-winning cuisine as well as galleries, boutiques, salons, vintage shops, and a food co-op. The newly restored Columbus Park with a dog park is just around the corner and the Broad Street subway is steps away, making life without a car a viable option. This distinctive home offers the most discerning buyer a glorious melding of old and new and is loaded with charm and character in the heart of one of the city’s most coveted neighborhoods.
