What makes a house a home? A dining room big enough for a gathering table? Just-perfect places to store and display the things that help make up your daily life? Quiet nooks and crannies tucked here and there? Or is it the warmth of exposed brick, carefully curated light fixtures and east- and west-facing natural light? Whatever it is that creates the spirit of home, this classic Philadelphia row has it--as well as checking off all the practical boxes that a thoughtful renovation should. The open-floorplan main level features custom built-ins nestled around a bench seat under the front windows and a dining area defined by a decorative plaster arch and an exposed brick wall. Another sweet arched doorway leads to the kitchen, which offers storage galore in cabinets with beadboard accents, porcelain tile floors, black quartz countertops, blue mosaic sea-glass backsplash, undermount stainless steel sink and stainless steel appliances including Kitchen Aid five-burner slide-in range and French door fridge. Out back is a large-for-the-city patio with room for a grill, table and planters, and downstairs is the nicely finished basement complete with powder room. Second-floor renovations kept the original floors and millwork intact but created a more functional layout than historic homes typically provide. The front bedroom has an exposed brick wall, two large windows, good closet space and a to-die-for light fixture. The back bedroom is more spacious than you might expect and has two exposures and a repurposed windowed door complete with adorable mail slot. In between the bedrooms is the expanded hall bath. The stylish, period-appropriate renovation brought frosted globe vanity sconces, a granite-topped dual vanity, black-and-white basketweave floor and classic wall surround that perfectly complement the original refinished cast iron tub. The third floor is a peaceful dream, with its dormer nooks and exposed beams. It currently serves nicely as a guest room and office, but it's easy to envision it as a master retreat. Perfectly situated to enjoy Queen Village favorites like Shot Tower Coffee, Hungry Pigeon and Royal Tavern, this home is also convenient to shopping and dining in the Italian Market as well as East Passyunk Ave.
