Behind a traditional exterior lies a beautifully maintained home where every design detail was carefully curated and every customization was executed with the utmost attention to both form and function. A classic red front door opens into the smart reverse layout that puts the stunning kitchen front and center where it belongs. Stone floors, soapstone countertops with bullnose edge and a full-wall marble herringbone backsplash meet a stainless steel Thermador appliance package including five-burner cooktop, separate oven and built-in microwave drawer; a pot filler and touch faucet. But the real showstopper here is the library ladder that keeps within reach every inch of the custom floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, framing a large passthrough window with marble sill. The open living/dining room couldn~t be more ready-to-entertain: The chic navy and gray palette, Walker Zanger marble-tiled gas fireplace, crown molding and marble-topped dry bar with double wine fridge all wow at first glance, but what you don~t see is just as good: The custom cabinetry with second library ladder rail hides away a coat closet and entertainment system wiring. Custom Marvin French doors seamlessly tie the large bricked patio together with the indoor space. The new white oak hardwood floors on the main floor have been stained to perfectly match the originals upstairs, where there are two guest bedrooms with good closet space off a hallway with three schoolhouse lights. The first has an extra-wide window with extra-deep sill, and the larger second bedroom has two eastern-facing windows. The hall bath features Restoration Hardware accessories, a soaking tub with full-wall subway tile tub surround and metallic tile inlay, and a recessed marble-topped vanity with Porcher sink and full-wall metallic tile backsplash. Up on the third floor is the completely renovated master suite, where the soaring vaulted ceilings feature a skylight in both the bedroom and en-suite bath. The serene bedroom feels large even with a king-size bed and has a dramatic Restoration Hardware drum light fixture, two custom built-in shelves and a remote-controlled shade for the skylight. Through an arched doorway is a windowed corridor with two large schoolhouse pendants, large double closets with custom organizers, a sweet built-in storage bench and a frosted transom window into the bath. The just-as-serene bathroom features radiant heated porcelain tile floors, subway tile surrounding a six-foot Kohler tub with Grohe fixtures, an oversize vanity and more Restoration Hardware accessories. Located in the heart of Fitler Square and in the Greenfield elementary school catchment, this home allows easy access to Philadelphia's finest dining and retail, not to mention Rittenhouse and Fitler Square parks and the Schuylkill River Trail and park.
