Welcome to 1937 Montrose Street, a perfectly sized three bedroom home located on a quaint, tree-lined block in Graduate Hospital within the Chester Arthur Elementary School catchment. When you step inside this classic Philadelphia rowhome you enter its original vestibule, which provides a separate space to pause and hang your coat before you enter the main living area of this home. The living room area is a good size with gleaming hardwood floors and crown molding to accent the space. These beautiful... finishes carry over into the dining room area, which is a unique find in a rowhome. This dining room has ample space to accommodate a large table and chairs, ideal for entertaining family and friends. The dining room flows into the timeless black and white themed kitchen. The kitchen features crisp white cabinetry and subway tile backsplash highlighted by black countertops and classic stainless steel appliances, including a gas stove! The kitchen design has a smartly added breakfast bar that is perfect for casual everyday dining. The back door is right off of the kitchen and provides convenient access to large patio area with lots of room and all the potential to hang twinkling lights illuminate your summer BBQs. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, a full bathroom and lots of extra storage, a rarity in Philly rowhomes. Two of the three bedrooms feature walk-in size closets and there is even a large linen closet in the hallway. The master bedroom is light and airy with two tall windows that let in plenty of light to showcase the room. The bathroom is completely updated with a modern dark colored vanity for storage, white subway tiled shower/tub and a window to let the morning sunlight in. This home also features a dry basement with good ceiling height and could easily be converted into another living space. Not only is this cute as button home a quick walk to Rittenhouse Square and the business district, it is just blocks away from neighborhood favorites Fitzwater Bagels, Sidecar Bar & Grille, Ultimo Coffee, Chicks, LAnima, Cafe Ynez and Marian Anderson Park (and pool!) and is close to the SEPTA #17 and #64 bus lines. Sellers are now offering an American Home Shield Home Warranty for a Buyer that submits an acceptable offer on this home http://homecb.com/unbranded/1937montrosestreet-philadelphia
