5338 Webster St – SOLD

Not too big and not too small, this well-loved classic West Philly porchfront rowhome is just right. On a pretty little block right off Baltimore Ave, this house is move-in ready but has plenty of room for the next owner to add their personal touches. There are classic original details throughout, like a leaded glass window, a tiled vestibule with transom window, and two decorative mantels with pretty vintage tile, along with improvements such as replacement windows, a newer kitchen and bathroom and some updated mechanicals. The first floor offers a large open living space as well as a dining area separated by an open archway. The spacious galley-style kitchen with ceramic tile flooring has cool black countertops and sleek black appliances to complement the light wood cabinets, which have undermounted lights, and butcher block island with stainless steel drawers for added prep space and storage. There’s plenty of room for a breakfast nook or to add another bank of cabinets if there’s a hardcore chef in the household. The large wood deck is the perfect spot to dine al fresco; below you’ll find raised planting beds, great for starting a vegetable garden, and a breezeway to store bikes and/or gardening tools. Upstairs in the front bedroom there’s a large bay window, a lovely original built-in mini armoire and fireplace with green tile. This room adjoins a smaller middle bedroom that would make a great nursery or dressing room and is followed by another smaller bedroom with three windows that make the room feel super light and airy. There’s a good-size bedroom in the rear with a large closet, and a ceramic tiled bathroom with wood vanity and cool beachy tones. The full basement has good ceiling height, a laundry area and plenty of room for storage. Not a quick flip and not a fixer-upper, this perfect starter home is conveniently located close to both the 52nd St and Baltimore Ave strips.
