With room after large, sunny room of beautiful millwork and well-preserved circa 1910 details on an idyllic Penn Alexander catchment area block, this is the forever home you’ve been waiting for. Enter through the large vestibule into the living room with a gas fireplace, dramatic crown molding and leaded glass at every turn—from the oversize front window to the huge bay window with bench seating to the pocket doors leading to the dining room, which offers more crown molding, a coffered ceiling and another large bay window. The eat-in kitchen with access to a nice-sized yard and back staircase was updated with Corian counters with undermount sink plus charming touches that blend perfectly with the historic character of the rest of the home. Up on the second floor is another set of leaded glass pocket doors to the front parlor with a fireplace and unpainted crown molding and woodwork. This room was used on an episode of HGTV’s Trading Spaces, whose designers added a built-in desk and upholstered ceiling panels as a quirky design element that could easily be removed if they’re not up your alley. The hall bath with stunning original leaded glass windows, subway tile, clawfoot tub and pedestal sink connects to the middle bedroom with two closets with original mirrored doors. The rear bedroom, also with two closets with original mirrored doors, opens to a charming sleeping porch with three walls of operating 12-pane windows. On the third floor are three more big bedrooms flooded with light plus another hall bath with original tiles, fixtures and leaded glass. There are custom storm windows throughout, and the heater has a summer/winter hookup for efficient water heating. On one of University City’s most coveted blocks, super close to Clark Park, Green Line Cafe, Milk & Honey Market, Aksum Cafe, Mariposa Food Coop, the 34 trolley to UPenn and Center City, and everything else the Baltimore Ave strip has to offer. And if you work for UPenn, you may be eligible for up to $11,000 in forgivable loans and grants.
