House of the Week: Elegant Fairmount Victorian
This elegant residence on beautiful tree-lined Green Street is on Philadelphia’s Register of Historic Places. Fortunately, while the home retains the stateliness of its original design, it’s also seen renovation work that brings it up to speed with more modern construction. The kitchen is wreathed with handcrafted cabinets and granite countertops, the fridge is Sub-Zero, and the gas range is Thermador. There is access to a deck covered with a pergola.
Period details include wood staircases, leaded stained glass, built-in bookcases and ceiling medallions. The foyer is all marble, while throughout the rest of the home you’ll find crown molding, hardwood floors and paneled halls and stairways.
