Description for 245 S 53RD Street Philadelphia, PA 19139
This classically-made, current-day-perfected twin just outside University City offers just the right square footage, whether you're upgrading your home, downsizing back to the city or need a little extra space in the form a finished basement with full bath for out-of-town guests. Noteworthy details like the facade's original architectural details (including the uber-charming front door overhang), enclosed porch with beadboard ceiling, a leaded glass transom, turned staircase with original banister, decorative fireplace and bay window maintain a true West Philly vibe, while the neutral-but-not-boring color palette and timeless finish selections complement any style. The cool, understated L-shaped kitchen features 42-inch gray Shaker-style cabinets, gleaming white quartz countertops and subway tile backsplash, and stainless steel Frigidaire appliances, including a five-burner range and French door refrigerator framed by a bonus bank of cabinets. There's enough space out back for a grill and bistro set, but we think the formal dining room is the natural place for guests to gather. The original pine floors continue throughout the second floor with three large bedrooms?each generous room has ample windows, with a lovely bay in the master. The bathroom is appointed with tasteful finishes that will stand the test of time: a gray porcelain tile tub surround, sleek Shaker-style vanity and marbled ceramic tile floors. The basement's good ceiling height, recessed lighting and handsome flooring make it a truly useable living space, topped off by a guest bath with a marble hex-tiled base and gray porcelain-tiled surround walk-in shower. This stunning renovation is super-convenient to University City and the Baltimore Ave and 52nd St retail corridors, and the El is just a few blocks away.
