Gorgeously updated historic rowhouse in the MEREDITH CATCHMENT now available in the center of Queen Village! This 19th century gem has been thoughtfully renovated to offer modern amenities without sacrificing historic character. Tucked away on a picturesque residential block, this 3-bed, 2.5-bath home features central air conditioning, three working fireplaces, a full unfinished basement, roof deck, and beautifully restored wide hardwood floors. The home is connected throughout by its original hardwood staircase. Entering the home from its stunning facade on S. American Street, you are welcomed into a flexible living space, complete with the first of three fireplaces, that extends into a rear room with a full bathroom and plenty of storage, perfect for an office, playroom, or bonus living space. The ground floor also contains access to a sizable unfinished basement with a washer and dryer and endless storage potential. The original staircase winds upwards from the ground floor to the second floor, the true heart of the home. The second floor landing contains a second flexible living space made cozy with another fireplace. A hallway connects this living space to the half bath and the bright, remodeled kitchen. The open concept kitchen features a well-appointed cooking area with stainless steel appliances - including a Wolf gas cooktop and Bosch stove - as well as a distinct dining area complete with a built-in wine bar for entertaining guests. On the third floor, the first bedroom is located at the top of the staircase and contains a working fireplace, along with a stylishly-designed, sliding wood door with built in storage. The second bedroom is located down the hallway, past an updated full bathroom with a sliding barn door. The fourth floor is a large, open third bedroom with gorgeous pine hardwood floors awash in light from the dormer window. The roof deck, accessible from the fourth floor bedroom, provides a relaxing outdoor retreat with stunning views of the city. This graceful rowhouse is individually listed on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places and part of the National Register-listed Southwark Historic District. It is conveniently located steps from Philadelphia s waterfront and the amenities of South Street, the Headhouse District, and historic Fabric Row, and is just a short walk to East Passyunk, the Italian Market, Old City, and much, much more.
