On the Market: Rehabbed Row House in Bella Vista
This South Philly classic looks a lot brighter now, and it's not because of the morning sun pouring through its windows.
Like the Italian Market?
How about cheesesteaks or banh mi?
Or maybe Mexican taquerias are more your speed.
If you’re a foodie, this recently renovated row house for sale on East Passyunk Avenue makes the perfect home base for your culinary explorations in more ways than one.
As it’s one block above Washington Avenue and two blocks east of the Italian Market, you have a world of dining and shopping options at your doorstep.
When you feel like having someone else do the cooking, you can head to one of the numerous eateries that surround you.
And when you want to do it, this house lets you cook, dine and entertain with ease.
Its open main floor was built for entertaining. Your guests can relax in the living room or hang out at the dining room table and breakfast bar while you put on a show in the kitchen.
And with loads of storage and pantry space, the kitchen lets you stay well-stocked with ingredients for whatever cuisine you might wish to explore.
In the summer, you can treat yourself and your friends to cookouts on your rear patio. Its ipe wood and bluestone pavement makes it more environmentally friendly to boot.
And once you’ve sent them all home, you can retreat upstairs, where three bedrooms and a nicely outfitted hall bath await.
Put a home gym in the basement and you can burn off all the calories you just consumed as well.
This house for sale got a total rehab recently; both its hardwood floors and its interior walls sparkle, especially when the morning sun strikes them. (Or the afternoon sun, in case of the second-floor rear bedroom.)
Are you ready to say “Chow!” — er, “Ciao!” — to this Bella Vista beauty? If you are, you know what to do.
