348 N 42ND STREET, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19104
Beautifully and lovingly updated by the owner while maintaining the original elements and style, this home is the perfect combination of old charm and modern convenience. Central Air Conditioning, upgraded electric, Nest thermometer, and Ring doorbell will have you living comfortably in the 21st century while still enjoying all of the character of the original hardwood, tile entryway, and built-in shelving. After you enter through the vestibule complete with original tile, notice the spacious family room with pass-through bar to the dining area which enhances the open concept feel. The kitchen has been recently updated with an abundance of cabinets, butcher block countertops, white tile backsplash, tile floor, garbage disposal, newer range with hood, built-in microwave, dishwasher, and new refrigerator. At the top of the wood stairs with painted white risers are three bedrooms and a full bath with newer vanity. Each nicely-sized bedroom has a ceiling fan and windows that allow for plenty of natural light. A convenient 2nd floor laundry room is located next to the bath. The unfinished basement, complete with utility sink, is a perfect workshop or extra storage space. The water heater, furnace, and chimney liner were replaced, the front bricks were repointed, and the roof was latex coated, all within the last five years. The interior living space has been freshly painted. When the weather gets warmer, enjoy your backyard paver patio. The yard abuts the Vidas Athletic Complex, so it feels incredibly private. This West Powelton home is easily accessible to all modes of transportation and within walking distance of Penn and Drexel in University City.
