A timeless blend of period details and modern amenities are showcased in this grand, three-story residence, circa 1880. The quintessential Fairmount charm of this home begins at the curb with solid wood double doors below an arched transom window, a delightfully painted bay and cornice, and marble steps flanked with colorful planters.
Enter through the original tiled vestibule to the foyer to find a grand staircase with a sweeping curved banister and soaring ceilings. The parlor boasts 11' ceilings with a beautiful plaster medallion, rich crown moldings, an ornate gold leaf mirror atop an original antique stone decorative fireplace and stunning inlayed hardwood flooring. The adjoining dining room is the perfect space for large family gatherings and entertaining and first floor powder room adds convenience. The kitchen and adjacent summer kitchen, which is currently being used as a laundry room, are simple but functional. The lush back yard is spacious with seating areas and room to garden. The second floor features a bedroom with an original arched doorway, stone decorative fireplace and bay window banquet for morning reading. A Master bedroom with attached room, ideal for a closet, and a hall bath round out the second floor and two more bedrooms with original Heart of Pine floors, the third. Located between the Fairmount and Brewerytown neighborhoods on the edge of Fairmount Park, you'll love the easy access to The Ben Franklin Parkway, based upon the famous Champs-Elysees in Paris and the Museum of Art. The neighborhood comes alive in the summer as it is home to Philadelphia's largest outdoor events, parades, concerts and races. For the foodie, walk to delightful bistros, gourmet food shops, friendly cafes, fine restaurants, and local pubs along Fairmount and Girard Avenues. Runners and bikers will love the close proximity to Kelly Drive, Boathouse Row, Lemon Hill and the banks of the Schuylkill River.
