A slice of suburbia in the heart of the city! With its 3-car secured driveway and full-sized yard, this home is truly a unique property for Philadelphia. Originally built as a mattress factory in 1960, this building was repurposed as a private residence in 1977. Designed by local, award-winning architect Cecil Baker, this home has been lovingly maintained by its original owners for 44 years. The current 1-story design features 2BR + 2 offices, but the layout could easily be altered to create a 3 or 4 bedroom home. As you enter through the gate and meander down the long, paver driveway, the front beds of perennials welcome you. The view from the foyer showcases the open floorplan in its sun-drenched glory. The row of skylights over the main hall is impressive, and the combination of large windows, interior and exterior transoms, exposed brick and metal beams create a feeling of warmth and unique character. The two bedrooms sit in the front of the home, both with deep window sills your plants will love. The owner’s suite features an exposed brick wall, a walk-in closet as well as double wall closets, and an en-suite bath. There is a double sink vanity, newer toilet with Toto system, and a stall shower with sliding glass doors. Walk down the Mexican-tiled hall to find two adjacent office spaces with parquet floors and charming bookcases – truly a centerpiece of the home. In the living room, you’ll find large windows overlooking the yard and a wood burning stove. The kitchen features solid wood cabinetry, granite counters, a Bosch dishwasher and Samsung range. A kitchen table is thoughtfully built-in, OR use it as additional counter space. The dining room can easily fit an oversized table because, surely, you’ll be entertaining! The dining room sliders lead to a garden that is unparalleled in Philly. It boasts a large deck with a custom mosaic from Philly’s renowned Isaiah Zagar. There is space to create your dream garden, and a shed for your supplies. Easy access to highways, public transportation, and all that Queen Village has to offer. Located in the popular Meredith School Catchment. With a lot this large, you are only limited by your imagination.
