À propos de ce logement
This home blends a homey Northwest Philadelphia location with modern fixtures, natural woods and unexpected urban “pop” decor. The 2010 remodel of a 1912 Mt. Airy twin has been complemented with a West Coast inspired design aesthetic. 5 Night Minimum.
Our home has been maintained in modern but comfortable simplicity, with a full interior renovation in 2009. Friends have described its clean architecture nestled in one of Philadelphia’s homiest neighborhoods as “the unicorn” – an “old” home now showcasing modern fixtures and uncluttered lines. This air-conditioned oasis boasts a comfy “man-room” with flatscreen and ample couches; a billowy and elegant second-floor master bedroom with marble bath tiling and dual shower heads, and two luminous bedrooms with Mt. Airy views on the top floor. The space will feel equally welcoming for a couple enjoying Philadelphia together, or for an entire family.
The back porch is a daily dining spot in the summer months. (Mega-grill and cornhole gaming access are provided upon request.)
Kitchen/Dining: at far end of first floor open-floor plan, with easy back porch table access. Natural teak dining table makes for a dramatic eating experience. Kitchen has center granite island, with modern stainless steel finish appliances and a gas stove/microwave. The space also features a pocket-doored powder room.
Lounge/Living Area: a favorite comfy couch for afternoon reading or small gatherings.
Front Porch: Adirondack chairs and benches enable you to survey the neighborhood comings and goings while enjoying a cool drink.
Back Porch: Dining space for six people, with a large grill and easy kitchen access.
TV ROOM (Finished Basement)
Wide open, flat-screen viewing area with modern but un-fussy couch seating. Stays naturally cool in summer -- a perfect movie watching space after a long day.
Master Bedroom/Bath: this whisper-blue walled open space is decorated with natural-finished woods. The California King size master bed has been in-law approved as “one of the most comfortable beds ever”! The attached master bath provides luxurious privacy from the rest of the house, with cool marble flooring and sink, a double vanity, and a dual-head shower. Walk-in closet.
Guest Bedroom (and bath): This room has queen bed. The room overlooks W. Sedgwick street and has lovely natural light. The adjoining bathroom has modern fixtures, marble flooring, a shower/bath and single sink.
Bedroom 1: Large room with full bed and a gorgeous view of Mt. Airy treetops (and sometimes even a glimpse of downtown). Adjoining white-tile bath and shower.
Bedroom 2: Bunk beds are perfect for two guests. Modern furnishings and ample closet space.
