It's not all that often that the yard kicks off a house description--but we seriously can't stop gushing over this perfect outdoor space, with its huge deck with custom bench and pub table, plus a pretty lawn with a built-in gas grill with prep space on either side--it even already has market lights strung! Inside is a spacious home that feels airy and fresh, with pretty hardwood on the first floor and brand-new carpet on the upper floors. There are separate living and dining spaces, adding a touch of formality without stuffiness, and the spacious kitchen at the rear has potential to add a bistro or pub table for casual dining--maybe a bar cart from one of Manayunk's many design shops. With a passthrough into the dining room, the ceramic tiled kitchen features crisp white cabinetry with contrasting dark countertops, stainless steel Kenmore appliances and a huge double window for great afternoon light and a view out to THAT YARD. The second floor currently serves as a master suite, with a nice-sized front bedroom with a good size closet and south facing windows, plus a smaller rear bedroom that the current owners are using as an additional massive walk-in closet. The bathroom features a sleek space-saving vanity that doesn't skimp on storage, ceramic tile floors and half wall surround and tub surround with matching mosaic inlay. There are two more bedrooms on the top floor, both with ample closet space and lovely natural light. This basement is proof that it doesn't need to be finished to be useful. Currently set up with a workshop at the front, there's still plenty of room for storage and laundry. This home is conveniently located in the heart of Manayunk with easy access to Center City via Regional Rail; nature lovers will appreciate the proximity to the Schuylkill River Trail, while foodies will appreciate the great dining options along Main Street.
