823 S 56th St – SOLD

This high-quality renovation on a lovely Cobbs Creek block has the same high-end finishes and luxury feel that you find in homes at twice the price. It checks off all the boxes—open floorplan, central air, finished basement, stylish yet functional kitchen, hardwood floors, new roof and windows, updated mechanicals, 10-year tax abatement (pending approval)—and then some: this house has bathrooms for days! Don’t miss the thoughtful custom touches, like the passthrough to the mudroom to allow more light in, fully wired surround sound throughout, Ring doorbell and gorgeous way-better-than-builder-grade light fixtures with Edison bulbs. Solid oak floors make up most of the main level, leading into the ceramic tiled L-shaped kitchen featuring crisp white Shaker-style cabinets with built-in wine rack, neutral granite countertops with breakfast bar, stainless steel undermount sink and stainless steel Frigidaire appliance package. Just off the kitchen is the bilevel rear yard, with a deck for entertaining and an area below for planting or storage. The cool gray color palette continues on the second level, which has plush carpet throughout. The middle bedroom in many homes is an afterthought; here it’s not only a decent size but has two deep closets. The master bedroom, at the front, also has ample storage space with dual closets plus its own en-suite bath with sleek modern vanity and walk-in shower with frameless glass doors. The rear bedroom has its own deep closet and gets plenty of light from the bay window overlooking the deck. There’s another full bath on this level, also with frameless glass doors and marble tile surround, plus a soaking tub and dual vanity. This home has two powder rooms as well, one on the main level and another in the fully finished basement. Great for additional living space or a guest room, the basement also has a tiled laundry area, and the mechanicals are tastefully hidden away. This charming home is in a convenient location just off Baltimore Ave near schools, SEPTA, Christy and Sherwood parks, the Free Library and shopping centers, and only a few blocks from Cobbs Creek Park, with its biking and hiking trails, baseball, basketball and ice skating rink.
