Fairytale...or your reality? Located on a quiet and festive block in the East Falls historic district, this adorable open-concept gingerbread house could be the fairytale ending to your home search. The stone front patio and original peaked solid wood front door greet your visit warmly, as they will your guests for years to come. Bet you can’t wait to add your own holiday decor (and you still can if you act quickly)! Come inside and the bright cheery living area (with coat closet!) is just as welcoming, flooded with light from the large original front windows, as well as the abundant recessed LED lighting, reflected by the brand new gleaming blond hardwoods throughout. The generous living area flows into the dedicated dining space. The expanded kitchen is a true dream-come-true featuring Virginia honed granite counters, tile backsplash, under-cabinet lighting, and a surprising amount of storage. Upstairs are two large bedrooms, both with serene views, and each featuring double closets with automatic lighting and ceiling fans. There's a cozy window seat (with storage) where you can perch with a good book and watch the snow fall on your little world from the front bedroom window. The clean & bright hall bath with skylight features an expanded marble-top vanity with lots of storage and full size bath with subway tile surround. The lower level is finished with new carpet and also has a surprising amount of natural light and a walk-out to the rear flagstone patio. There is also the laundry room and plenty of additional storage on this level, along with a classic Philly “quarter bath” (toilet) with the potential to add a half bath. All of this along with new windows (except the two historic in front), new HVAC, electric, and more, make this East Falls fairytale home your dream-come-true! We welcome your visit!
