A delightful and bright 4 bedroom 1.5 bathroom home with GARAGE parking on a desirable tree-lined University City block. This south-facing top-to-bottom meticulous renovation was done by the owners with care to preserve the historic details. The original character includes hardwood floors throughout, high-ceilings, and original woodwork. Enter into the sunroom with its large windows and built-in bookcase. The living room is highlighted by the original brick mantle and offers recessed lighting. The dining room offers spacious elegance and begs for candlelit (and family!) dinners. No expense was spared in the designer kitchen - including a Kenmore French door refrigerator, 5-burner range/double oven, wine fridge, and hot water dispenser (for a cup of tea with the pull of a lever). The high end solid wood soft-close drawers and cabinets offer plenty of storage and convenience, including a spice rack and a pantry with pullouts. Custom granite (not the cookie cutter variety) spreads from wall-to-wall. The first floor offers a half bath as well. The upstairs boasts four nice sized bedrooms and two skylights. The master bedroom includes a door to a lovely walk-out deck, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee or evening glass of wine. The dry lower level is finished, ideal for family room, play room, den; plus a quarter bath, laundry, storage, and direct access to the garage. The house is located within the Lea School Catchment and the University of Pennsylvania forgivable loan program. It is around the corner from Barkan Park, the University City Swim Club, and a short walk to Mariposa food co-op, Dock Street Brewery, and a host of restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping. All mechanicals are new including the plumbing, 200-amp electric service, heater, water heater, and windows. Come see this tasteful and quality renovation today. Notes: Garage parking plus a driveway spot in front of the garage plus plentiful street parking.
