*** OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY 9/2 11-1 *** It’s not every day that you have the chance to live on one of the most magical blocks in Philadelphia- maybe even the world. Welcome to 1647 S 13th Street, at the gateway to “The Miracle on South Thirteenth Street”. This wonderful home encompasses the best of old-world charm and modern amenities—with over 2,300 square feet of living space! The sunny west facing entrance is framed by a gorgeous swath of wisteria and a happy red front door. Enter through the energy efficient air-lock vestibule with beautiful ceiling details and a space for coats and bags. The large open concept living space features original oak floors with mahogany inlay detail, a large bay window, beautiful light fixtures full of character and a first-floor powder room! Not only is there room for a full living room set up, but it’s open to a separate dining area that leads back towards the kitchen. With charming character of exposed beams, faux finished cabinetry and Italian ceramic tile floors, this kitchen begs to host that dinner party gathering! It leads towards what is possibly one of the most special backyards one could possibly rent—with a marble terrace and a canopy of mature flowering wisteria. Truly a natural oasis in the middle of the city--dining al fresco just got a whole lot more fabulous!! Plus, you have space to garden and exterior access to the semi-finished basement. Down below, there is lots of storage space, one of two sets of washers and dryers (that’s right—one set in the basement as well as one set on the 3rd floor!) as well as a semi-round glass bar that would make the perfect setting for a fantasy football draft or poker party. Head up to the 2nd floor and you’ll find brand new carpet and paint throughout. Towards the back there is a large sunny bedroom with an adjacent study—a library, yoga room, baby room, extra closet space, playroom, so many possibilities. Towards the front, there are 2 more bedrooms with built in closet space and lovely natural light. In the middle, there is a 3-piece retro-charm filled bathroom.
The 3rd floor has been fully renovated recently into a gleaming primary suite oasis including a fabulous soaking tub and rain shower, floating vanity and gleaming tile, stackable washer and dryer and lots of built-in closets for clean and easy storage.
The location is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city- East Passyunk Crossing. Here you can walk to just about everything you need- one block to the subway, a quick hop to grocery stores, pharmacies, the post office, parks and playgrounds, community centers, the farmers market, the hardware store, nail salons, gyms, restaurants, boutiques, night life and a tight knit community with many festivals and seasonal celebrations. Truly, a special house in a special place. Available now! Pets negotiable with a fee. Easy online application. Don’t miss this rare gem of a home!
