Own a piece of Philadelphia History with this red brick Queen Anne style twin home with characteristic Eastlake architectural styling. This home was originally built in 1882 and has been fully renovated and restored to its greatness. This architectural gem features 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a finished basement and 14 foot tall ceilings on the main level with a living room, sitting parlor area with gas fireplace, a formal dining room, and a modern kitchen with stainless steel Samsung appliances including a six burner gas range. The home also features ornate crown molding and wainscoting throughout the main level, a back patio area and a large wrap around porch in the front, two-zone HVAC, and a fully tiled four-fixture master bathroom. The front facade is adorned with a restored ornate bracketed cornice typical of the Queen Anne style, with decorative eave returns just below the gabled third facade. The gable contains restored decorative wood elements below and along the eave. The new wrap around porch with some original posts, also typical of the Queen Anne style, extends from the front steps to the front entry. The restored double wood doors carved in the Eastlake geometric style are tastefully varnished. The new custom windows were designed to mimic the original wood windows, with classic Queen Anne upper sashes comprised of one large center pane and smaller panes wrapping around it. Directly above the original entrance doors is a large transom composed in the same Queen Anne style as the upper sashes, but with multi-colored panes. The west side entrance creates a grand center hall with original switchback stairs, in varnished wood carved in the Eastlake style. The center parlor features an original mantelpiece that has been restored to the original brick and is a working gas fireplace. There is another mantelpiece in the main living room with original woodwork and inset tiles with a center tile depicting a scene of the Wissahickon Creek. The home is part of an eight-unit development project which is comprised of seven new construction townhomes and this historic renovation. Each of the homes feature off street parking located in the rear of the homes which is accessed via a common drive aisle from Sumac Street. A site plan is included as part of the marketing materials.
