There's no denying the allure of Washington Square West, with its tree-lined streets and its access to delightful bistros, gourmet food shops, friendly cafes, fine restaurants, and local pubs. But the 300 block of Fawn Street truly epitomizes the neighborhood's charm. Completely unexpected, this cart path block sits right in the heart of Washington Square West, a stone's throw away from Jefferson Hospital, the busy theater district, and active two-lane city streets. Yet meandering along this quiet, pedestrian-only block of late 19th century Federalist and Greek Revival style rowhomes feels out of this world, like stepping into a time capsule of colonial Philadelphia from yesteryear. Welcome to 322 Fawn Street, a timeless 1875 clapboard trinity perfect for the individual seeking the excitement of an urban lifestyle while offering the respite of secure, private living. The small but well-organized floor plan includes a sun-soaked first floor living room with random-width hardwood floors, a built-in bookcase, and a wood-burning fireplace with a painstakingly restored mantel with delicate millwork and rosette details. Unlike many trinities, the kitchen sits in the heart of the home within the main living space, allowing for easy living and entertaining. With marble countertops, a farmhouse sink, white Shaker cabinetry with matte black hardware, a classic subway tile backsplash, and access to the charming patio, you'll enjoy both indoor and outdoor dining. Upstairs, find a beautifully appointed bedroom with wide plank flooring, interior shutters, and a brick fireplace. The ensuite bathroom boasts a decorative tile floor, a glass-enclosed shower, and a stackable high-efficiency washer and dryer for convenience. The basement is semi-finished and is ideal for a home office or wine cellar. Every detail in the home's restoration was considered from the solid six-panel doors to the interior paint schemes grounded in period architecture, to the historically accurate molding colors to accent the lighter walls. Within the bustling neighborhood of Washington Square West, you'll enjoy dining in Midtown Village, shopping on Pine Street's Antique Row, relaxing with a book in Washington Square Park, and taking in a theater production along the Avenue of the Arts. 322 Fawn Street is perfect for the individual who loves the pulse of the city and the quiet of their own private residence.
