Fantastic opportunity to own a LARGE three-story twin in the heart of East Falls. This home has many original details with upgrades and modern amenities. As you approach the home you are greeted by the covered front porch. This is a wonderful place to greet your family and friends as well as unwind, sit back, and appreciate the beautiful morning sun, as it rises over the Philadelphia skyline. Upon opening the front door, you will be in awe of the high ceilings and bamboo wood flooring that extends from the living room to the dining room. The first floor is an entertainers dream, offering a flowing floorplan from the spacious living room to the substantial dining room; with plenty of room to host holiday feasts or an intimate gathering. Just beyond the dining room is the kitchen, equipped with a gas range, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, and an abundance of countertop and cabinet space. Step outside onto the raised deck, with stairs that lead to the sizable fenced yard or enter the screened porch, a tranquil space where you can enjoy the evening sunsets. The sizable yard is an inviting space that makes you want to fire up the grill and relax while entertaining your guests in this outdoor oasis; Or, if you have ever wanted to grow your very own urban vegetable or herb garden, this home offers the perfect opportunity to create one you can add to your culinary masterpieces. Back inside, follow the staircase, with original pine treads, to the upper floors. At the top of the staircase is a roomy front bedroom with double windows. Just down the hall is the three-piece bath with ceramic tile flooring and tub surround and vanity. Also on the second level is the main bedroom outfitted with a walk-in-closet and three-piece ensuite bathroom. Two additional bedrooms complete the third floor, with one housing an East Falls inspired, custom built bar that is great for hosting friends and family to watch your favorite sports team or host game night. As you travel between the second and third floors, take notice of the beautifully restored original pine floors that complete this home to its historic 1930's charm.
