As you walk down your block, soak in Philadelphia's rich history as you walk over each and every cobblestone. This house was originally built in 1847 and underwent a huge renovation in 1979 designed by award winning architect, Cecil Baker. Baker created a two-story space with a glass wall and palladium window which was featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer Magazine. Other updates have been made by its current owner, an Interior Designer with 40+ years of experience, purchased the home in 2017. There are new planter boxes in the front windows and original wood shutters that were rebuilt, stripped and painted in 2017. As you walk up your front steps, wave to your ring doorbell, turn off your alarm, & step into your foyer on the first floor of your new home. As the bright natural light hits your skin, on your left you will find a spacious living room with one of four fireplaces in the home. This fireplace is a new gas log vented fireplace that will cozy up this space right away. This room has new custom built-in Millwork bookshelves and overlooks one of the large glass walls Cecil Baker curated in the home. In the evening the custom pendant lighting creates a special ambiance. Step forward to a sunny spacious landing that has heated floors and overlooks the outside space through a classic Baker glass wall. This area could be perfect for an office area where house plants would thrive. Turn the corner to go downstairs to your beautiful open concept kitchen and dining room with a new chef's kitchen" complete with new appliances such as a gas cooktop stove, electric wall oven, convection microwave combo, a unique bar/pantry storage with a custom walnut Millwork snack bar, along with LED downlighting throughout all the drawers and cabinets with lots of storage. The fireplace on this level is wood burning with a new chimney line and new tile surrounded. This fireplace is where the original cooking fireplace was when the house was first built. On this level of the home, the floors are heated to keep your toes warm and there is a half bathroom along with a glass door that leads out to a new patio which includes a new built-in gas grill with a natural gas hook up installed in 2017 and new flagstone & stone wall/planter. Head back up the stairs to the 2nd floor where you will find the main bedroom en suite which includes a built-in closet system, dressing room, fireplaces, lots of storage and a roof deck which this year had its pavers removed, cleaned and reinstalled after new roofing was installed beneath it! The new main bath spa shower has heated floors and a heated towel bar along with all new plumbing fixtures & Porcelanosa tiles. The fireplace in the bathroom/dressing room area is functional wood burning but has not been used during the current owner's time in the home and was recently retiled, in 2017. Adjacent to the main bedroom is a new laundry room with Mele Stacked Washer/dryer and built in storage with a water safety shut off. Head up to the 3rd level and you'll find two bedrooms and a full bathroom. The front bedroom has ample loft storage and a multiple-closet system. The back room overlooks the outside spaces where you can look out to see the beautiful historic city. This level also has stairs for roof access through a skylight where you will find your A/C and heating systems and a new coated roof. This home is beautiful and unique in the heart of Philadelphia. You can feel the history as you walk along the surrounding streets and soak up the sun on one of your outside areas. It is not to be missed!
