This is your opportunity to own a classic West Philadelphia twin, filled with original architectural details, tons of character, and all the indoor and outdoor space you have always wanted. Located on a historic, cobblestone street, just a few walking minutes from Baltimore Avenue, the Trolley, the Mariposa Food Co-op, the Kingsessing Library and Rec Center, and Clark Park, this home offers an extraordinary opportunity for easy, gracious, city living. Up a few steps from the tree-lined sidewalk you'll find a large covered porch with plenty of room for relaxation, play and entertaining. Enter the home through a beautiful full light and paneled door into a wide foyer with lovely original tile and a pair of transoms. Continue through a corridor into the entrance hall, which features a grand, carved and varnished chestnut staircase, a columned fireplace with deep green glazed tile, and original wood floors, which run throughout the home. Off the entrance hall is the living room (or parlor) which features 10' high ceilings, large double hung windows surmounted by a leaded glass transom, a painted white fireplace with miniature white subway tile, and a pair of French doors that lead back to the entrance corridor. Flanking the living area is a large dining room, great for family dinners and dinner parties. The room features an extraordinarily well preserved fireplace topped with a wood and glass vitrine opposite a bay window that lets in soft northern light. Beyond the dining room is a spacious, recently renovated kitchen highlighting warm wood cabinets, copper clad counter tops, an apron sink, and a dramatic wall of subway tile. Through a small pantry the rear door opens up to a large back yard with plenty of room for gardening, play, al fresco dining, and entertaining. Downstairs you will find a large, recently parged and painted basement with plenty of room for storage, work space, and laundry. Adjacent to the basement stairs is a back stair case that also leads to the 2nd floor, where you will find 3 generously proportioned bedrooms with high ceilings, bay windows, plenty of room for storage and closets, and a central tiled bath with a pair of beautiful leaded glass windows. The third floor is currently set up as an au pair suite, featuring 3 large rooms, a kitchen, and another full bath. This is a great opportunity for a separate living space for a nanny, a relative, or a friend. It also offer an opportunity to create an extraordinary owner's suite with full bath, plenty of closet space, and still an additional room for an office or nursery. Along with all of the historic character and charm, this unique property has seen other recent updates, including a new roof, and an updated electrical system. 936 S 49th offers a great opportunity to get in to the home you always wanted and continue to update over time, or step back, assess, and invest in making it your dream home this year.
