"One-of-a-kind" can be a cliche, but that's really the best way to describe this farmhouse-chic house with a full side lot. Blending a funky personal style with lovely original details, the seller has created a home that's warm and unique--and the additional outdoor space is an urban gardener's dream come true. The enclosed shiplap porch, stone accent wall, original hardwood floors and floating wood staircase create an almost cabin-like vibe that's balanced by the vintage charm of the jadeite-hued doors, tasteful kitchen finishes, and signature West Philly clawfoot tub and bay window. A decorative fireplace creates a cozy spot to gather in the living room, and there is easily enough room to create a separate dining area. The kitchen features classic white Shaker-style cabinets below butcher block countertops, a custom reclaimed wood wall accent, and a crisp white brick wall showcasing the stainless steel chimney hood and GE range. And don't miss the fun original wallpaper peeking out from behind the fridge! Upstairs are two sunny and serene bedrooms in a nice neutral gray; the master features a deep closet and an inset perfect for a dresser or vanity. The slate-tiled bathroom is spacious and has a partially frosted window behind the tub to offer privacy without obscuring light. The finished basement features the same pretty slate tile, a convenient half bath and walk-out access to the backyard?add a wall and you've easily got a third bedroom for guests or a home office. The cemented rear patio is the perfect space for a grill and patio table, and the adjoining side lot offers amazing outdoor space even if gardening is not your thing-although it may be now. Located on a pretty little one-way block just below Baltimore Ave, this charming home is convenient to multiple bus lines, the 34 trolley and all the restaurants and retail along Baltimore, perhaps most notably Greensgrow West.
