Looking for the ideal home to suit your new work-from-home lifestyle? Look no further! This unique nearly 3,000-square-foot property on a quiet, tree-shaded street in a Philly’s lively hilltop Manayunk section has it all: the soul of a comfortable/livable home with ample flexible work space.
Beyond the welcoming entry foyer is a tall-ceilinged dining room with high windows, built-in shelving, diagonally patterned oak floors, eye-catching Art Deco touches and a powder room. There is also a gigantic living room / family room / media room with maple floor, another powder room, more windows and built-ins and a beautiful gas fireplace. Both rooms lead to a massive eat-in kitchen with bamboo flooring, walk-in pantry, entry to a separate laundry room (which has a door out to the three-car offstreet-parking driveway), and another door out to the two-level walled and landscaped courtyard — an oasis in the city, perfect for sunning and dining. The entire downstairs is made for entertaining and gathering, intimate or large.
On the second floor there’s an impressive and private primary bedroom suite: a long, windowed hall with a built-in linen closet; a bedroom of generous proportions with a wide and tall clothes closet and a gorgeous ceiling mural; and an impressive bathroom with double sinks, shower, bidet, and a hidden laundry chute that sends your clothing to the laundry room below. The entire front of the second floor is two connected open-plan rooms — truly multifunction space to make into what you need it to be: a bedroom, playroom, TV room or shared work area.
The third floor has a bedroom, beautiful tiled en suite with tub and shower, and a second bedroom-size room that has been used as a writer’s office.
Ideally located: walk to buses and Regional Rail to Center City and 30th Street Station; the Expressway is just a few minutes down the hill. Shops for all everyday needs are just up on Ridge Avenue. Ten minutes away on foot is the beautiful woods of the Wissahickon Valley. Plus, dining and nightlife and exercising along the historic canal towpath are a short walk away down on Main Street.
