Historic charm awaits your modern style in this rare, well-preserved, Fishtown home on a great block in the heart of the neighborhood. Walking distance to all the neighborhood amenities, yet quietly situated outside of the fray, this 2+BR, 1.5BA home will not last long. The fa~ade features a classic, red brick, Philadelphia look with the original painted cornice. Enter the home through a full light period door into a vestibule with original tile, leaded glass transom, and half light door to the living room. The open living/dining area features an original wood fireplace, parquet oak floors with walnut trim, and an architrave and columns separating the two distinct spaces. A long and wide side yard, with gated access to the street, allows for plentiful light throughout the living and dining areas. The kitchen is updated with plenty of cabinet space, granite counters, an island, and a large set of patio doors leading out to a very large and grassy yard. Off the kitchen is the laundry room, the powder room, and a door to the side yard. At the top of the original oak staircase is a large bathroom with an antique English sink, claw foot tub, and fixtures and tiles reflecting the period. Off the hall is a nice sized room, currently used as a nursery, which could also serve as an office, study, or play room. Passing through this room brings you to the stairs to the 3rd floor, as well as the door to the 2nd floor bedroom that offers beautiful southwest light and good closet space. Up the stairs you will find another nice sized bedroom with a wall of original closets and a pitched ceiling extending up over 9'. History, style, and location are all included in this well maintained, turnkey property.
