Urbane Renewal in Overbrook, On The Market Again for $499K
This home offers the best of both worlds: the solidity of an older home plus the style and features of new construction.
Can’t choose between the solid construction and traditional style of an older home and the amenities and modern style of new construction?
You don’t have to with this strikingly original home that’s back on the market.
This property is nestled in the heart of Overbrook Farms. With a classic stone exterior, this Dutch Colonial seems to fit right in with the sizable turn-of-the-century homes that the West Philadelphia neighborhood is known for.
However, behind this old-school façade lies a contemporary wonder. The wraparound front porch leads into an open floor plan that connects the living, dining and kitchen areas. This modern layout, as well as the natural lighting provided by the many windows, transforms this home into a wide, open and airy space.
Among the three bedrooms on the second floor is the master bedroom, an ornate suite that includes a traditional fireplace and private balcony. These furnishings are not to be outdone by those in the en-suite bathroom, which include a double vanity, dual flush toilet and frameless rainhead shower. Take another flight of stairs up, and you’ll find four more bedrooms and a full bathroom in the hallway.
The property also includes driveway parking for two cars, one of which might help you ferry goods from the shops and supermarkets along City Avenue. But if you work in the city, you could do without the other, for Overbrook Regional Rail station is at the end of the block.
