1409 S PERCY STREET, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19147
Location, location, location...and updates, character, and affordability! On a quiet tree-lined block in the very heart of Passyunk Square, this charming home truly has everything you've been searching for, finally! First, let's consider the location. You're literally just steps from many Passyunk Avenue staples: Triangle Tavern, Essen Bakery, Black & Brew, Urban Jungle, and of course the South Philly Acme. But location isn't all it has going for it; tasteful updates blend old character with new in the ample space this charming home provides. The original tiled vestibule with transom leads into the open-concept living space with new oak flooring in the dining and living areas. Although the highlights may be the original wood columns, archway, and banister accenting the space along with the exposed brick wall behind the stairs. There is a coat/storage closet off the dining area--rare feature in these parts! The kitchen has been completely updated with granite counters, matching stainless steel appliances, tile flooring, and plenty of cabinet space, and gets plenty of light through the full glass panel door (with internal blinds) that leads to the large patio finished with Trex decking. Upstairs features three light-filled bedrooms and the updated bathroom. All three bedrooms have ceiling fans and closets/storage; the master has his-and-hers sliding-door closets, and the middle bedroom has custom built-in cabinets. The floors in the hallway and master are beautifully-refinished original pine; the other two are carpeted. Laundry is in the basement, which is bright, clean, and dry, and great for additional storage. All of this comes at an affordable price that will still allow you to get out and enjoy everything this fabulous neighborhood has to offer! Bonus: plan your visit in the evening and check out the celebrated Percy Street Project on the next block!
