5024 Catharine St – SOLD

Posted on 10/15/2011


Beautiful, meticulously maintained University City home with original details on the lovely 5000 block of Catharine, where the porches and gardens display pride of ownership. This twin boasts refinished hardwood floors; unpainted woodwork; original butler’s pantry, armoire, window seat and more. The foyer with original wainscoting opens to the living room with lovely turned staircase and leaded glass windows; pocket doors lead to the large dining room. The eat-in kitchen was renovated in the past few years—modest but with a good layout and barely-used appliances. Off the kitchen there’s a utility room with laundry and half bath, leading to a nice-size backyard with recent plantings (including cucumbers, tomatoes, azaleas and a rose bush). The 2nd floor features a large front bedroom with bay window and decorative fireplace; a large, light-filled rear bedroom; two more spacious bedrooms and a hall bath with clawfoot tub and original subway tile. The large unfinished basement houses recent mechanicals. A West Philly must-see!
