...This Classic West Philly Victorian twin with a two story turret on the most idyllic tree lined street is sure to win you over!

814 S. St Bernard St has the perfect blend of historical architecture and modern upgrades. Soaring ceilings, hardwood floors and massive windows throughout make this house just gorgeous!
Lovingly restored over the last decade, the current owner has taken care to maintain the patina of story we all swoon for, while adding conveniences like first floor half bath, laundry and updated systems.

From the sidewalk, enter through the friendly front porch into a charming vestibule with slate tiles and original wainscotting. A grand living room welcomes you with lots of natural light and a hearth (the flue is functioning, but it's not currently being used as a wood burning fireplace - consider opening it up or add a warming woodstove!) Continue through a perfect dining room for hosting holidays or dinner parties into the quality kitchen and laundry / half bath area, then out the door to a nice sized backyard.

Upstairs, the second floor boasts three large bedrooms each with closet space in each and full bath. Front bedroom has that sweet turret nook, perfect for curling up with a book and your favorite beverage.

The third floor is a bright open floor plan opportunity ready to become whatever you envision for it! Mother-in-law / guest room? Kids' playroom? Massive primary bedroom suite? Art/ movement studio? Workspace? Studio apartment to rent? The possibilities are all there and the structure is solid. All it requires are your finishing touches to make it sing! The turret windows have all recently been replaced.

Everyone wants a lovely home, but on S. St. Bernard Street in glorious Cedar Park you get even more, because the neighbours look out for each other. They regularly organize low key porch hangs/ happy hours and block clean ups, so there’s a real sense of belonging to the community, as well. Which is the best treasure of all.

Close to public transportation with easy street parking. Near Cedar and Clark Parks, the Universities, Mariposa food coop and everything else West Philly has to offer! Arrange a tour today and your new year could start HERE!
