    Description

    This East Point Breeze gem has been lovingly restored, thoughtfully customized, and meticulously maintained by the same owners of 16 years. In a class of its own, this 3 bedroom, one and a half bath row home has been elevated to a work of art! Enter the front vestibule and appreciate the mosaic slate tiling with marble inlay, and the custom shelving that promises to keep your entry way clutter free. Just beyond, a rainbow of color will catch your eye, drawing attention to the step risers that have been enhanced with mosaics featuring repurposed, specialty tiles from the Mercer Museum. The open floor plan draws you into the space where you'll take note of the fine details. Restored, original banister, tailor-made built-in shelving with a fold out desk, red pine flooring, exposed brick, and warm lighting design all contribute to the home's harmonious aesthetic. Natural light is plentiful throughout the eat-in kitchen where you will find a wealth of cabinet space, open shelving, high-end appliances, concrete countertops, and to a chef's delight: a Fratelli Onofri 36 inch range. The sliding glass door leads to a coveted Philadelphia wonder: A highly functional green space! Outfitted with a pergola, there hangs a porch swing well-suited for meeting the day as you sip your morning espresso. With the kids in mind, there are practical additions including a climbing wall, platform and slide, and a trapeze swing. The garden boxes are home to perennials while offering plenty of space to garden according to your own design. Spring through fall, this space is truly an urban oasis! To complete the first floor, a closet was transformed into a small powder room with Japanese style, water conserving fixtures. Up the joyful staircase, you will notice abundant sunlight coming from the many windows and vintage double glass-paneled doors of the back bedroom. This ample, peaceful space exhibits original cornices and a decorative slate mantel. Here the viewer will be surprised to find a window has been converted to a door. This offers the prospect of a deck addition without the difficulty of building an entry way. There are two additional bedrooms and the full bathroom, boasting gorgeous wooden cabinetry, as well as flooring made with repurposed wine corks. On to the basement that has been fully finished and can suit most any purpose. It has most recently been used as an art studio and play space. There is a dutch door leading to an additional room with built-in shelving, suitable for office space or spare storage. An Asko brand washer and dryer, and a large storage room complete the lower level. Situated only 3 blocks from the heart of the commercial district of East Passyunk, you will find local favorites right around the corner: Ultimo Coffee, South Philly Taproom, Hardena, Rowhouse Grocery, V Marks the Shop, and the much anticipated, soon to arrive, South Philly Food Coop. With easy access to I-76 and I-95, excellent proximity to public transit, and a walk score of 95, you'll have no trouble accessing the bounty of culture that this wonderful city has to offer.
