A remarkable home. Its turret rising above the corner of 48th and Windsor Avenue, two gorgeous tree-lined blocks in the most desirable Cedar Park neighborhood of University City; this roomy twin is superbly restored. It offers brilliant character, remarkable architectural lines, 5 large bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a substantial fenced-in yard, a covered front porch and rear porch, and front and side yards. This stunning home has 25 restored original windows, including four in the spectacular light-filled turret. The entire home is offers stunning light and 10-foot ceilings; original hardwood floors throughout (including oak floors with inlaid pecan detail); exposed brick, and original moldings, trim, doors, windows, and pocket doors--extremely detailed character throughout. Enjoy a gracious flow throughout this home. Everything is striking. The renovated kitchen overlooks the rear yard, side garden, and beautiful Windsor Avenue and includes a comfortable eating and sitting area with a wood burning fireplace for both warmth and ambience and exposed brick, big windows, and a door to the rear deck and yard. The first floor also includes amazing historic detail, a historic Dutch door to a vestibule with original tiles, pocket doors and a huge living room and dining room. The second floor has three bedrooms (one with gas fireplace) with significant space and ceiling height and light; perhaps use one as a family room plus two full baths. The third floor has two more large bedrooms, a full bath, and a lovely, updated eat-in kitchen. So use the space as a gorgeous separate suite, or turn the kitchen into a full bath and walk-in closet/dressing room/laundry room (the plumbing is all there). Full walk-up attic (that could be finished) and large basement. This magical home overlooks quiet, tree lined Windsor Avenue and is a short walk to Clark Park and its fabulous Farmers' market, Chester Avenue Dog Park, Mariposa Food Co-op, Dock Street, Gold Standard, Vietnam Cafe, Vientiane, Milk & Honey, all of Baltimore Avenue's Restaurant Row, and other restaurants, shops & cafes. Close to HUP, CHOP, Penn, Drexel, University of the Sciences. 12 minutes to Rittenhouse Square by car or bike and plenty of convenient SEPTA options. NOTES: Always park right on your block. 2-zone HVAC with Nest thermostats. 4 fruit trees on the property!
