6218 BAYNTON STREET, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19144
This grand single home stands tall and proud on a quiet Germantown street. And proud it should be beautifully restored inside and out, this home boasts one-of-a-kind design details and high-end finishes merged with original character throughout. Park in the driveway and the first thing you will notice is the covered wrap-around porch, welcoming you to come up and have a seat and relax. But don't stop there, then take a deep breath and open the front door. You'll find yourself in the original vestibule; then open the restored frosted glass door and take it in everything from the gleaming original hardwood floors, the high ceilings with recessed lighting, the large dining area, and the natural light streaming in from the abundant new windows. Next, have a seat at the breakfast bar accented by a salvaged beam and custom glass pendants overhead and absorb the gorgeous kitchen: blue fantasy granite countertops, farmhouse sink and stainless steel Frigidaire appliances, under-cabinet lighting, and ooooh that beautiful blue-green tile backsplash! The mudroom in the back houses the washer and dryer, tucked away beneath a sleek counter custom-crafted out of locally-sourced barn wood. There is also a half bath, tucked neatly behind a pocket door. Then the back door leads to your giant parking/yard/party/play area an--wait for it--a TWO-CAR DETACHED GARAGE with additional storage. This area is enclosed by a wood privacy fence. Keep going, back inside and up the stairs because there is much more to see. At the top of the stairs, a sliding barn door leads to the hall bath with marble floor and restored original cast iron tub. Next to it is the first of four light-filled bedrooms, all with ceiling fans; the master suite is at the other end of the hall. Inside, another sliding barn door separates the bedroom from the his-and-her closets leading into the large spa-inspired bathroom, featuring a marble-top double vanity and glass-enclosed shower. The third floor has two more large bedrooms. The large basement is dry, and has been freshly painted and sealed. All new mechanicals, plumbing, electric, roof. And, although this home has parking beyond your wildest dreams, it is also an easy walk to the SEPTA train.
