Welcome to this lovely 2 story, 2 bedroom house in East Kensington, one block off Frankford Avenue. This house was thoughtfully renovated featuring a retro kitchen, sanded original wood floors, and central air. 1ST FLOOR: Enter into front living area with refinished century old heart pine floors, passing through to dining area. Large serving window/bar passes into a stylish kitchen with 50’s style retro metal cabinets, farmhouse sink, stainless fridge and range, and checkered tile floor. REAR YARD: Big enough for some greening, some grilling, and guests. 2ND FLOOR: Wood stairs lead to front bedroom with pine floors and great light. Rear Bedroom is good size with refinished oak flooring, and window light on two sides. Extra landing area upstairs leads to new ceramic bath with pedestal sink, ceramic tile and tub/shower. BASEMENT has good headroom and space for storage or craft, along with full laundry. Roof and most mechanicals/systems were upgraded in 2013. House has been well cared for by the current owner. This is around the corner from Frankford Ave where major investments are happening, including the Kensington Community Food Co-op grocery and cafe, set to open this month. This is very close to multiple modes of transit (El Station is 3-4 blocks away). On the block a few doors down is a peaceful pocket-park, organized by residents.
