    Description

    Presenting 2038 S 13th Street, a thoughtfully designed, character-filled residence which manages to marry the Old World charm of the neighborhood and modern aesthetic and conveniences required for today's savvy homeowner. This spectacular home offers the most discerning buyer a glorious melding of old and new, formal and casual, practical and elegant. Nestled just blocks from the heart of Passyunk Square's Singing Fountain sits this grand, three-story home. Wake to the sound of church bells and stroll Passyunk Avenue and find cafes, cheese shops, butcher shops, bakeries and some of South Philadelphia's best restaurants. Steps away is the new South Philly Food Co-op, set to open this fall and the home is located within the Southwark School catchment, with its innovative Two-Way Spanish Immersion program. Built in 1925, this 3-story building has the curb appeal coveted by lovers of urban architecture: delightfully painted double doors below a colorful stained glass transom window, a beautifully pointed brick facade with rich brownstone and a delicately painted cornice. Once inside, the home dazzles with open, sun-drenched spaces and offers classic simplicity, design-sensitive renovations and classic vintage restorations. Enter through the double doors to the sunny vestibule to find original a 1920s tile floor and walnut wainscoting. The parlor boasts 11' ceilings, rich moldings, an ornate walnut decorative fireplace surround, a grand staircase with detailed walnut-inlay and stunning random width pine hardwood flooring. Columns and built-in bookshelves separate the adjoining dining room which begs for a dinner party. The kitchen offers recessed lighting, slate flooring, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances and leads to a private back yard with seating areas and room to relax, an ideal space for autumn barbecues and dining al fresco. On the second floor, find three sunny bedrooms, one with French doors and a lovely bay window and a beautiful hall bath with classic tile, a pedestal sink and black and white retro-inspired tile flooring. The crowning jewel of the home is the third floor sun-soaked primary bedroom with French doors to a spa-like en-suite marble bath with a Jacuzzi and shower. Every detail is considered in this home from the solid wood interior doors with original crystal glass doorknobs to the carefully restored grand staircase and decorative mantle. A timeless blend of period details and modern amenities in a neighborhood immersed in culture, dining and history. Welcome home.
