    Description

    Impeccable, impressive, improved Townhouse in the Fairmount/Art Museum neighborhood. Tree-lined, lovely, low-traffic Swain street offers some of the deepest lots in the area affording homes with good room sizes and gracious gardening space. Historic brick & brownstone facade w/ gently arched windows and front door with transom welcomes you from the street. Vestibule entry leads into the living room which features high ceilings, exposed bricks and oak flooring - an original carved wood mantel is a natural focal point for this inviting room. A short hall connects the living and dinging rooms and has a half bath tucked to one side. The dining room has windows out to the breezeway and connects the living room to the kitchen - high ceilings and hardwood floors anchor this room. A strong visual axis leads the eye straight through the house and beckons you to the garden in back. The state of the art kitchen is perfect for the home chef with solid maple cabinetry, stone counters, a decorative niche for collections or storage and a stainless appliance suite. The full glass back door leads to the bricked back yard surrounded with planting beds with seasonal flowers, shrubs and ornamental trees creating a lovely place to grill, entertain and enjoy. The stair to the 2nd floor bedroom level is surmounted by a large skylight which floods the hall with sunshine. Spot lighting turns this hallway into a wonderful gallery space. The main bedroom is at the quiet, back of the house overlooking the garden. There is a walk-in closet for excellent storage and dramatic black wood floors. Two more bedrooms with closets are in the middle and front of the house, each with its own closet and oak hardwood floors. The newly renovated hall bath is sleek and modern providing contrast to the warm original details of the home. Glass enclosed shower, floor to ceiling tiles and stone topped vanity make this a truly lux bathroom. The full sized basement offers endless storage and houses the recently installed mechanicals.
