A blend of modern amenities and high-tech smart home capabilities are showcased in this grand, three-story residence, circa 1915. The home's charm begins at the curb with a vintage solid wood door with casing and pilasters below an arched transom window, a delightfully painted cornice and a beautifully pointed brick facade above rich brownstone. Once inside, the home dazzles with open, sun-drenched spaces and offers classic simplicity and design-sensitive renovations. The living room boasts 11' ceilings with recessed lighting, beautiful pine hardwood flooring, thick baseboards and a custom built-in coat closet with additional storage. Wall controlled ceiling fans and smart phone-connectivity to all lighting in the home sets the mood and offers security. The dining area is the perfect space for large family gatherings and entertaining and a first floor powder room adds convenience. The spacious, masterful kitchen is a chef's dream boasting 42" dark coffee cabinets, granite countertops, a classic subway tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances. A door to the yard and three side windows allow the outside in and flood the room with natural light. The sunny back yard is spacious with seating areas and room to garden, and ideal space for summer barbecues and dining al fresco. An Isaiah Zagar-inspired mural of mosaic tile, ceramic and mirrors cleverly created by the owner adds interest and whimsy to the space. The second floor offers three sunny bedrooms, one with a New Orleans'-style Juliet balcony overlooking the yard, perfect for a studio, home office or den. A laundry closet with a striking red Samsung washer and dryer and a beautiful hall bath with a floating vanity with glass sink and a soaking tub round out the second floor. The crowing jewel of the home is the third floor sun-soaked Primary Suite with large custom California closets, a cathedral ceiling and a spa-like bath with a modern floating vanity and a stunning frameless shower. In a neighborhood where private outside space is coveted, this home will not disappoint. In addition to the spacious yard, there is potential roof deck access which can be converted from the third floor window. This handsome home was completely renovated in 2013 and features an 80 gallon water heater, new roof and custom closets in each room. You'll love the neighborhood: walk to favorite eateries, American Sardine Bar, South Philly Tap Room, Ultimo and Chick's. Enjoy grocery shopping at Sprout's Farmer's Market and a two more walkable blocks east is Passyunk Square, recently named one of Food & Wine magazine's 10 Best Foodie Streets in America where you'll also enjoy eclectic boutiques, coffee shops, vintage clothing stores, an urban garden store, yoga studios, private specialty grocer and some of the best dining in the city. Close access to the SEPTA's Broad Street subway line via the Ellsworth-Federal stop and several buses provide a quick commute to the sports stadiums and Center City. This spectacular home offers the most discerning buyer a glorious melding of timeless grandeur and technology-inspired modern amenities. Welcome home.
