Feast your eyes on this beautifully, rehabbed rowhome in the heart of Passyunk Square! As you enter the front door, you'll notice the wide, open floor plan with recessed lighting and hardwood floors throughout. The electric fireplace will keep you and your guests warm as you entertain them in the living room. Three tray ceilings on the first floor encapsulate the unique light fixtures while making the room feel bigger. Making your way through the dining room, you'll notice a contemporary styled kitchen... with bright, white shaker cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and "zig-zag" tiled backsplash. A full backyard is also at your disposal for barbecues, entertaining guests, morning coffee, you name it! The second floor features two bedrooms and a full bath, while the third bedroom is a "standalone" room on the third floor. Just a block away from Passyunk Avenue, a stone's throw away from Pat's and Geno's Steaks, the famous Italian Market, and so much more! Whether you're a first-time home buyer, someone looking for a great AirBnB opportunity, or an empty nester, this home is for YOU!
