4612 KINGSESSING AVENUE, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19143
This beautiful, historic 5+ bedroom Victorian Twin is near the University of Pennsylvania in Squirrel Hill, part of University City's Cedar Park neighborhood! This home has been meticulously cared for (new roof shingles in 2020!), restored by a wood restoration professional, and it shows! It showcases the beautiful hardwood floors, crown molding on the high ceilings, wood built-ins in the dining room, spacious front porch with wooden swing, and refinished floors all the way up the wood-railing staircase. The chandeliers and crystal light fixtures catch your eye as you walk in from the porch through the double doorways into the living room with beautiful sunlight streaming in from the oversized windows with the original restored wood casings, and wooden shutters that fold away into pockets on the side. Open to the dining room, you walk toward the large dining table flanked by corner built-in cabinets in each corner. Down the hallway, there is an immense, open-style kitchen with cork flooring, big enough to add an eat-in table--or kitchen island--whichever you choose. Off the kitchen is a half-bath and a laundry/mud room that leads outside to a small porch and expansive green backyard big enough to have a garden, lawn, fire pit area, or even all three! Back inside you follow the grand staircase up to the 2nd floor, and walk-into the living room "parlor" for the primary suite, then follow through to the the ensuite bathroom, and into the bedroom with spacious closets. There are also 2 more bedrooms on this level with hardwood floors, ceiling fans, and a full hall bathroom with jacuzzi tub. Ascend to the 3rd floor of this grand Victorian, and you have 2 additional bedrooms, another full bathroom, and a 6th room, currently used as a 2nd kitchen, for additional income opportunities. Take the stairs down to the lower level, where there is an unfinished basement with walkout to the backyard, which can be used as a workshop or storage as well. Walkable to the Trolley, bus, and subway, this home is also walking distance to Penn, USP, Drexel, CHOP, VA and Penn Hospitals, as well as Clark Park, Woodlands & Bartram's Gardens. Imagine your private mansion with plenty of spaces to for everyone to live, sleep, and work close to everything you need! Or even the multi-family rental opportunities this property could bring.
