This classic porchfront rowhome has lovely contemporary updates that blend perfectly with its original details. From the inside out, the seller has taken care of the hard stuff, like all new wiring and heating systems, along with aesthetics like refinished hardwood floors, new trim and doors, updated kitchen and new half bath plus laundry room. The main living area is cozy yet open, with an oversized window and a modern take on a turned staircase with a unique peek-a-boo window into the kitchen. The kitchen is the real showstopper. With sleek, industrial-cool accents, it still manages to feel homey and welcoming, patiently waiting for its first dinner party. This design mag-worthy space features dark butcher block countertops contrasting with white Shaker-style cabinets, a concrete-topped center island with extra cabinet storage, stainless steel appliances including a GE range with dramatic architectural-style hood, dual-basin farmhouse sink and full-wall subway tile backsplash. At the rear of the house is the new half bath with pedestal sink and full-size washer and dryer. There’s a small rear patio, offering enough room for a patio set or a grill and container garden. The second level has three bedrooms all comparable in size—no home office/dressing room-only option here. The front features a pretty bay window and adorable shuttered storage space, the middle has handy built-in shelving, and the rear has a beautiful original built-in armoire. The updated bathroom has a subway tile shower surround, pedestal sink and pretty gray ceramic tile flooring to complement the neutral blueish-gray walls. The basement has good standing height and provides additional storage space. This home is convenient to the 52nd St commercial strip and just a short commute to the 34 trolley line, Cedar Park, Dock Street, Amari’s, Vix Emporium, Taco Angeleno and everything Baltimore Ave has to offer.
