This grande victorian with unpainted woodwork, a formal parlor, original pine floors, period lighting and a 1920's fully functional elevator, restored by a fashion buyer and DJ. Double door entry, original stained glass transom, clay tile floor and original wall tile in the vestibule. Parlor with original mantel and bookshelves, period chandelier. Leaded glass doors into the dining room, where the entry into the elevator is and a coat closet. Legend is that the elevator was installed in the 1920's for several nuns who lived there--it's petite and goes to the second floor. The dining room also has a mantel, a corner built-in armoire, a door to the exterior with leaded glass transom and entry into the kitchen. The sunny kitchen has a period checkerboard floor, painted cabinets and a window into the rear patio. There's a back sun porch with half bath and there rear patio, a quiet respite from the vibrant nightlife in Fishtown. Up the original staircase, there are three bedrooms on the second floor, one of which is used as a dressing room but there is also a separate 4th room that could be a perfect walk-in closet. The front bedroom has a large built-in armoire with mirrors and dressers. The full bath is on this level and is in retro cream and bath, with the classic deeper than average soaking bath and window. The top floor is two more adjoining bedrooms, one with a stained glass door and there is ample closet space here. The basement must not be missed that has hosted many a party with checkerboard flooring the owners put in and has a front additional powder room. Furnace around 6 years old and is forced air--current owners aren't "air conditioning people" but could be added fairly inexpensively by new owners.
