Timeless old world charm coupled with modern amenities make this home a must-see! The quintessential Fairmount aesthetic begins at the curb with a shutter-trimmed facade, delightfully painted front door with transom window and overflowing flower boxes. Wide rooms and high ceilings greet you as you step inside. The living room is flooded with natural light from both front and side windows and features oak hardwood floors, recessed lighting, crown molding and plenty of space for entertaining. The kitchen is every home's hub and this kitchen does not disappoint. Artfully painted cabinets feature bright white upper cabinets and a cool grey below. A white subway tile backsplash, stainless appliances and a large granite island with plenty of counter space for food preparation and gathering with family and friends round out the space. A door from the kitchen invites the outside in and leads to a large, sunny patio with brick pavers and a privacy fence, ideal for entertaining and dining al fresco. The basement is finished with a cool tile floor and recessed lighting and is perfect for a cozy den or office. On the second floor, you'll find two large bedrooms, one with a lovely bay window banquet for morning reading and the other with a reclaimed sliding barn door closet. The hall bath is modern with subway tile, a painted vanity and a tub. The home's crowning jewel is the third floor gracious Master Suite with a custom walk-in closet and a beautifully renovated marble Master bath with large spa-like shower. You'll feel like you are sleeping in a serene loft nestled in the tree tops. The Suite features a walk-out to a deck with sweeping city views where you'll enjoy a morning cup of coffee or evenings entertaining with friends. Aptly named one of "Philly's Hottest Neighborhoods" by Philadelphia Magazine, Fairmount has it all! For the art lover and history buff, you are just blocks from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Academy of Natural Sciences, The Rodin, The Barnes and the Franklin Institute. For the foodie, walk to delightful bistros, gourmet food shops, friendly cafes, fine restaurants, and local pubs. Runners and bikers will love the close proximity to Kelly Drive, Boathouse Row, Fairmount Park, Lemon Hill and the banks of the Schuylkill River. The entertainment lover will revel in Fairmount's outdoor events, parades, concerts and races. If you are looking for an exciting, established neighborhood and a home with loads of character and charm, this is it!
