  • Description

    When the modern aesthetic merges with a classic Victorian in a perfect West Philly location, magic happens. This Penn Alexander catchment area stunner has its historic skeleton intact but has been completely re-envisioned for 21st century living with the ultimate warm and modern style. Off the vestibule full of original charm is the first floor with QB3 architects' fingerprint all over it. The front parlor has three walls of custom built-ins and a gas fireplace, followed by a larger living room with four windows facing the gorgeous original staircase. Just beyond is the convenient main-floor laundry on one side, and a luxe full marble bath with heated floors on the other. The rearmost room transforms into a super private guest room via a door that disappears into the wall of custom built-ins. Sliders open to the covered slate-tiled patio with sweet built-in bench and private lawn. While the first floor is great for entertaining, it's equally well-suited for a family game or movie night and as a private retreat away the main living space for overnight guests, working from home or morning yoga. The private heart of the home begins on the second floor, which from its elevated perch is flooded with light and offers charming views of tree-lined Cedar Ave in the front and Baltimore Ave from the rear. At the top of the stairs is a staging area for keys, bookbags and mail. A steel-framed pocket door opens to the large open-concept living space with structural steel beams that create the ultimate gallery wall. There's a large dedicated dining area with four windows that flows to the large living room, which is flooded with light from the huge front window flanked by five-windowed turrets. On the opposite end is a powder room, followed by a large kitchen that is equipped to be a workhorse but is also more than a little easy on the eyes. Ample storage comes in the form of a huge pantry closet, steel lower cabinets/drawers and island and wall of upper cabinets with lift-up doors. There's space for a cozy breakfast table in either the side bay window or rear bump-out. Sleeping quarters are on the third floor, whose hallway features a swag schoolhouse light fixture, Venetian plaster wall and huge linen closet. At the top of the stairs is a large bedroom with two exposures, a double closet and more custom built-ins. The large hall bath is full of great details, from the understated marble backsplash to the one round/one square double sinks to the refurbished original tub surrounded by white penny tile with a navy border. The middle room with great closet space is currently used as a home office, but the desk and shelving could easily be swapped out for a bedroom set. The master bedroom offers Zen simplicity without having to actually go minimal--there's an entire wall of custom built-ins to get your belongings out of sight and out of mind, an entire wall of windows with top-down blinds for privacy, and plenty of room for a king size bed. While the existing square footage has ample living space, the unfinished basement with super-high ceilings offers further potential if you really need it. And yes, all the design-forward light fixtures (including the George Nelson) stay. Not only in one of the city's most coveted school catchments, this home is a stone's throw from shopping and dining on the Baltimore Ave strip and the 34-trolley.
