No need for a city vs. suburbs list here: This lovely stonefront house in West Philly combines both wish lists. This corner home is a city gardener's dream with its wraparound lawn, mature trees out front and along the side, and planting beds and endless possibilities for container gardens along the side patio. The inside is just as inviting, with warm oak parquet floors throughout the first floor, a sweet archway flanked by display niches separating the living and dining rooms, and crown molding and chair rail that add just the right touch of vintage charm. The kitchen features contemporary flat-front cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops with mosaic tile backsplash and an additional bank of cabinets with butcher block for additional prep space. Head down to the finished basement for bonus living space, laundry area and powder room plus direct walkout access to the patio for outdoor entertaining. The second floor features pretty original pine floors and a bathroom with amazing salmon and black retro tile tub and half wall surround. The front and rear bedrooms both benefit from windows on two walls and are super sunny, while the middle bedroom has tons of shelving options for a great home library or office. All the things that draw people away from the city are found here: garage parking plus unofficial driveway space, ample outdoor space, and additional community greenspace across the street in Haddington Woods. But you won~t need to give up city life; the Market-Frankford line is mere blocks away and there are multiple bus and trolley lines nearby.
