Description

This beautiful East facing Kingsessing 4BR/1.5 BA semi-detached twin home owned since 2011, has been lovingly restored in a fashion that is faithful to the original concept, updated with complimentary modern aesthetics and conveniences. The front porch is a perfect perch to watch the world go by. The entry vestibule boasts an ornate leaded glass interior door with coordinated transom allowing to stream in the premises. The tile flooring and wood paneled accents set the tone for the experience. Stepping in, the living and dining area convey the sense of spaciousness, while great condition the original, freshly refinished hardwood planks contain the pedigree of a time when craftsmanship and quality were the standard. The decorative mantle remains in tact with Corinthian inspired columns, which may have once surrounded a hearth or stove. The home is heated by a hot water radiator system, and cooled by a Central Air System, which many consider the best of both worlds when it comes to HVAC. The kitchen is modern with a white color palate and modern stainless steel appliances and gas cooking, a great place to prepare meals or entertain. Elegant custom faucet fixtures and contemporary style. The second floor has wonderfully preserved and unpainted wood doors, baseboard and window trim in various locations. Step into a wonderful bathroom with a clawfoot tub and shower, paired with alabaster tiled floors and subway tile wall surrounds. Each bedroom is a well apportioned with ceiling fans in each, and any could be purposed as an office. Find a full hallway cedar closet. The basement has been finished, complete with a half bathroom. Windows throughout the home have been updated for efficiency. The home has a nice sized rear yard with wood privacy fence, which would be a great space to garden, or store bicycles. This home is near Cedar Park, Dock Street Brewery, Bookers Restaurant, Kingsessing Library and Recreation Center, the Free School, and a short commute to University of the Sciences, University of Pennsylvania, 30th Street Station. Also, a short distance to the trolley and regional rail line. Showings Begin 11/18/2021.
