4811 Kingsessing Avenue

Philadelphia, PA 19143

This beautifully renovated, perfectly sized twin is on a quiet street just a few short blocks from Clark Park. From the tasteful finishes to the original details and functional layout, it feels like this one was built to suit. The living room is wide rather than long, making furniture setup a breeze?there's a decorative fireplace, high ceilings, original hardwood floors that continue throughout the house and a large window with arched leaded glass transom. The open layout flows directly into a dining area with bay window and spacious U-shaped kitchen with GE stainless steel appliance package, white Shaker-style Makellos cabinetry, complementary white subway tile backsplash, black and white granite countertops with breakfast bar and pretty ceramic tile flooring. Just past the kitchen is a conveniently located powder room with modern white vanity and space for a stackable washer/dryer. A pretty turned staircase leads up to the second floor, where there are three nicely sized bedrooms, as opposed to an awkward four, and a nicely appointed hall bath with stylish white vanity and soaking tub with subway tile shower surround. The master bedroom is huge, with windows on two walls, a large closet and certainly enough space to create a dressing room or seating area. The bright front bedroom features a bay window, deep closet and decorative carved wooden mantel. The middle bedroom has two oversized windows and good closet space. There are two additional closets in the hall as well as a full basement for extra storage space. A large grassy yard provides a lovely outdoor entertaining area and options for landscaping that can be accessed from the street through a breezeway--also handy for taking out bikes and trash cans. Located just three blocks from Clark Park and less than a block from the Kingsessing Rec Center and library, this home is in an ideal location close to public transit and great local businesses along the Woodland and Baltimore Ave strips.
