This magnificent, ultra spacious, University City, Penn Alexander Catchment 4 story 6BR/3Bath home has been compassionately updated with three zones of high velocity Central Air for Philadelphia summers while faithfully retaining countless mesmerizing architectural details. Developed and conceived as a turn of the century (c. 1903), this grand manse retains the integrity of its original design, while its modernizations have been considerately implemented to appeal to those searching for a home able to accommodate, work and play from home simultaneously, quiet space, and togetherness over its four levels and expansive rear yard. Diversity, detail, and craftsmanship are evident upon approach. A stately setback from the streetscape through a varietal garden to an ornate American porch, and we are introduced to this splendor of Colonial Revival architecture. We highly suggest the virtual 3D tour to truly digest the elements and aspects of this home. The entry foyer is stunning, adorned in floor to ceiling formal chestnut decor. The wood millwork, molding, leaded glass, custom brick, wainscoting, and accents throughout the residence is truly art. Articulated plaster moldings in the formal parlor are a preface to plethora of appointments in the living room such as a gas fireplace and built in bench. Original pocket doors peek out timidly before the dining room, which is crowned with a coffered ceiling . The chef's kitchen is a modern and open gray and white palette with quartz countertops and a generous island. Gas cooking is facilitated by a Thermador six burner range. Outdoors find 40+ feet of rear yard space, with large deck areas on each end, and a professionally tended garden boasting -quince, daffodils, hellebore, lilies, hosts, nandina, mahonia oak leaf, hydrangeas and more. Inside, two distinct sets of stairs lead to the second level, which functions as a suite with bedroom leading to antechamber directly accessible to the bathroom. This level also hosts the primary parlor, which is absolutely stunning with its glistening varnished wood accents and wonderfully maintained parquet flooring with decorative inlay. On the third level find a total of four bedrooms and one full bath. The fourth level has another bedroom/office, utility room, bathroom, and large flexible space that could be imagined as a playroom or studio space. This property is close to public transportation, Penn, Drexel, Baltimore Avenue, CHOP, HUP, Penn Presbyterian and numerous restaurants, coffee shops and entertainment.
