    The impact of an architect on a home renovation often is the difference between good and great, and nowhere is this as evident as at 2224 Mt. Vernon Street in the Historic Spring Garden District. This c. 1865 Italianate brick house had been well maintained by its previous owners. Now, having undergone a down-to-the-studs renovation designed by architect Melissa Mather of MelissaMatherSTUDIO, its interior spaces are the best they can be; no details large or small have been overlooked; standards and craftsmanship are high; every modern comfort is in place throughout its almost 2, 400 square feet. A polished exterior opens to a vestibule entry and a superb, light-filled interior with high plaster ceilings, new quarter-sawn oak floors, period-appropriate millwork and moldings, gorgeous solid cherry custom-milled interior doors and even a new hardwood stair and handrail from the first to the third floor. A reconfiguration of space has added such extras as a first-floor powder room, second-floor laundry, luxury main suite bath, generous storage and beautiful family room with wood-burning fireplace and wet bar. A formal living room leads to a formal dining room and then a big, bright, updated kitchen with top-grade appliances and fixtures. Access a brick patio from the kitchen's casual dining area. Upstairs are three bedrooms and three full baths, including an expansive main suite with custom built-in storage, laundry and new bath. Upstairs and down, every room features a fresh, sophisticated paint palette selected by the architect. This home is well positioned for excellent natural light and offers city views from its roof decks. Adding more appeal to this home are its new and updated mechanicals including new dual-zoned HVAC, whole air and water filtration systems, Lutron lighting controls, LED-screen intercom system, new roof, ceiling fans, and truly top-grade fixtures and materials throughout. As a bonus, enjoy one year of paid parking for two vehicles. A very special home, perhaps one of the finest to come to market in historic Spring Garden, and an opportunity not to be missed.
