1932 S 9th Street Philadelphia PA 19148 | $429,000
This 1,482 sqft honey of a house, situated across from BOK Bar and Irwin’s, and between Passyunk Ave’s 26 eateries and 9th Street’s food emporiums, has been lovingly restored beyond its original potential. The 15.5 ft wide LR/DR hardwood floor area allows for comfortable flow and entertaining space, a coat closet, and a powder room. The delightful sightline to the rear garden greets you and your visitors each time the newer, enlarged, steel door is opened. The 15x15ft 2017 kitchen reno was designed to accommodate a partially disabled cook and former pastry chef with everything within a 5 to 6 step reach. A coffee station is tucked out of sight next to the counter depth side by side s/s fridge. A baking station is positioned in the opposite corner, next to the wall oven with more storage above and beneath. Plenty of quartz counter workspace next to the double sink with deep drawer cabinets beneath that allows ease of access to all the cooking/baking goods needed. A Maytag dishwasher to the right of the sink. The corner pantry places dry goods within easy reach. Gas stovetop, slightly opposite the sink in the 7ft by 32” quartz island, sits above more storage. A 15” bar and storage complete the south wall. The joists holding the kitchen up were sistered prior to the installation of the ceramic tile floor. The second-floor back bedroom can hold a queen bed with nightstands, room for a dresser, and two closets. The
middle bedroom, used as an office/guest room with a daybed, has a large double slider door closet. The main bath is renovated and freshly painted. The front 15.5×15.5 bedroom holds a king-sized bed with nightstands, dressing table, and dresser, plus two closets and a TV stand. The basement, recently thoroughly cleaned and waterproofed, provides loads of storage or could be finished as an extra room. In fall 2019, the marble steps were regrouted, the front apron treated and painted, and a new concrete sidewalk poured; all new windows, flashing and blinds installed. The house has been skim coated and repainted. The patio? We all know how important outdoor space has become. This one has been used as a summer kitchen and held parties of up to 12 guests. This is a house to be enjoyed whether by a small
family or a couple, to work in, to rest, and most of all, to love to come home to.
