This week’s SoPhilly Spotlight is a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom East Passyunk Crossing home with plenty of modern upgrades. There’s a wine fridge, beer tap and more custom details in the kitchen, a nice-sized back yard and second floor balcony, along with other details making this a South Philly home worth checking out.
This 1,776 sq. ft. house at 1830 S. 12th St. is currently listed for $439,000.
From the listing:
Welcome home! Truly every detail has been considered in this meticulously-upgraded custom Passyunk home, expertly blending original features with modern concepts throughout. First, enter the living area and take a look around at the exposed brick, original red oak floors, plentiful recessed lighting, and exposed beams?then head straight back to the gourmet kitchen.
Take in the new stainless GE Profile appliances, granite countertops, granite farmhouse sink with a built-in beer tap, built-in surround speakers, LED under-cabinet lighting, 48″ upper cabinets and, ohhh!, all that storage! Turn around, behind you is a large wine fridge built into a custom cabinet made from salvaged wine crates!
Continue out the back door and prepare to get a little giddy over the patio space. This is not your typical South Philly backyard. It’s huge, with an attached covered porch with rustic corrugated aluminum ceiling, ceiling fan, and spotlights, as well as a large uncovered area with built-in boxes growing bamboo and a Japanese maple. Ok, now tear yourself away from the garden and head upstairs because there’s more to see!
Straight ahead you’ll find the first bedroom (used as a fitness room with rubber mat floor) and access to the deck with a Center City skyline view, solar lighting, and privacy railing. Next up is the a full bath with Carrara marble subway tile, an extra deep soaking tub, and European rain shower.
Check out two more bedrooms on this floor before heading up to the master suite on the 3rd.
Straight ahead is your office?or nursery?or reading room. And then, the master bath with its travertine tile, oversized glass shower with body jets, and double vanity. And finally down the hall, an original cedar linen closet and the master bedroom itself with large walk-in closet.
All of this, within a block of Passyunk Ave and the best restaurant scene Philly has to offer! Come see for yourself, this home really is as fabulous as it sounds?and it won’t be around long!
