Condo For Sale In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

6 BR, 2 BA
936 S 49th St, Philadelphia, PA

This is your opportunity to own a classic West Philadelphia twin, filled with original architectural information, tons of character, and all the indoor and outdoor space you have always wanted. Located on a historic, cobblestone street, just a few walking minutes from Baltimore Avenue, the Trolley, the Mariposa Food Cooperative, the Kingsessing Library and Rec Center, and Clark Park, this home offers an extraordinary opportunity for easy, gracious, city living. Up a few steps from the tree-lined sidewalk you'll find a large covered front porch with plenty of room for relaxation, play and entertaining. Enter the home through a beautiful full light and paneled door into a wide foyer with lovely original tile and a pair of transoms. Continue through a corridor into the entrance hall, which features a grand, carved and varnished chestnut staircase, a columned fireplace with deep green glazed tile, and original wooden floors, which run throughout the home. Off the entrance hall is the living room (or parlor) which features 10' cathedral ceilings, large double hung windows surmounted by a leaded glass transom, a painted white fireplace with miniature white subway tile, and a pair of French doors that lead back to the entrance corridor. Flanking the living area is a large dedicated dining area room, great for family dinners and dinner parties. The room features an extraordinarily well preserved fireplace topped with a wood and glass vitrine opposite a bay window that lets in soft northern light. Beyond the dedicated dining area room is a spacious, recently up-to-date kitchen highlighting warm wood cabinets, copper clad counters, an apron sink, and a dramatic wall of subway tile. Through a small pantry the rear door opens up to a large back yard with plenty of room for gardening, play, al fresco dining, and entertaining. Downstairs you will find a large, recently parged and painted basement with plenty of room for storage, work space, and laundry. Adjacent to the basement stairs is a back stair case that also leads to the second floor, where you will find three generously proportioned bedrooms with soaring ceilings, bay windows, plenty of room for storage and closets, and a central tiled bath with a pair of beautiful leaded glass windows. The 3rd floor is currently set up as an au pair suite, featuring three large rooms, a kitchen, and another full size bathroom,. This is a rare opportunity for a separate living area for a nanny, a relative, or a friend. It also offer an opportunity to create an extraordinary owner's suite with fullsize bath, plenty of closet space, and still an additional room for an office or nursery. Along with all of the historic character and charm, this unique property has seen other recent updates, including a new roof, and an renovated electrical system. 936 S 49th offers a rare opportunity to get in to the home you always wanted and continue to update over time, or step back, assess, and invest in making it your dream home this year.For more info:
