Property Description

Here goes your opportunity to live in the well-established PACKER PARK community presenting a suburban feel while still close to city convenience! And the icing on the cake: literally, a hop, skip, and jump away from the exciting vibe of prominent PHILLY SPORTS COMPLEX - home to the Eagles, Phillies, Flyers, and Sixers!! Upon entering through the elegant entry door with sidelights the view of the space is exceptional. The flow of the enclosed porch/sunroom with tray ceiling and plantation shutters and the ample-sized living room create a totally INTERACTIVE CONCEPT. The ventless gas fireplace with ship-lap surround and granite top, and the wrought-iron staircase with baluster single basket black spindles clearly make this room pop. Oh, and you cant miss the gleaming hardwood floors that flow throughout main level, that is until you reach the kitchen. The IMPRESSIVE KITCHEN, located off the sizeable dining area, includes stainless steel appliances, beautiful Kraft-Maid soft-close cabinets with underneath lighting, wall mount range hood, and enough granite counter space for all your needs all complemented by an attractive mosaic-accented tiled floor and tray ceiling. Outside access to cozy terrace (shared with neighbor) with just enough room for a BBQ grill, trash cans, and miscellaneous items is found off dining area. Lets touch on the array of AMENITIES the property offers: Newer Roof (est. 2017), Newer Electric Panel (est. 2019), all New Plumbing throughout, including Newer Sewer line up to front wall (est. 2020), dramatic height ceilings, recessed lighting, double-hung windows, upgraded trim and moldings, two-panel doors, chic fixtures, behind the wall tv wire kit installed in living room, maintenance-free green turf (front lawn & rear terrace) & so much more!! Also, just passed PGW safety inspection on 8/22/23 on gas service. Gas service/meter has also been replaced (est. 2020). Rest assured, this home has been TRULY WELL-MAINTAINED! Upstairs reveals an ever-so relaxed primary bedroom with essential built-in shelving, remarkable tray ceiling, and insulated door with between the glass blinds leading to PRIVATE TERRACE! Just imagine having your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail while sitting back and relaxing in your own piece of heaven. Two additional bedrooms and hall closet found on this level, as well as a striking bathroom featuring timeless subway tile surround bath, lavish fixtures, radiant heat flooring, and blue-tooth enabled exhaust fan. All carpeting on the 2nd level was just installed this July. The FINISHED LOWER LEVEL will knock your socks off with roomy chill/man-cave area. Separate laundry room is shared with full bath showcasing over-sized exquisitely tiled shower and vinyl flooring all concealed behind stylish frosted door for privacy. Perfect addition for the growing household! STORAGE you ask? No problem! There is a mechanical room, closed off section underneath the basement stairs, and interior access to an attached once garage ideal for storage. Garage entry was sealed off by former owner, but can certainly be transformed back for true garage use, should you wish. Chickie & Petes, Terminis, Celebres Pizzeria, Philadium, Xfinity Live!, Live! Casino, Turf Club, & FDR Park with tons of events and awesome dog walking paths ALL just a short walk away! Another location advantage is the Navy Yard, a thriving riverfront community with parks, dining, and variety of outdoor events. Above all - instant access to 95, 76, Walt Whitman Bridge, & Septas Broad Street subway line. It cant get much better than this. Front shared landing and upper steps will be getting a make-over in the near future. This is at no expense to new owner. Seller will make introduction to neighbor at 1527. Opportunity only knocks ONCE! Don't miss this opportunity
