    Description

    Fabulous Roxborough Twin available now! 262 Roxborough Avenue is a curation of modernity woven with timeless old-world details. Located on a quaint block in the heart of Roxborough, you are greeted by a cozy front porch groomed with well-manicured landscaping. Enter into the Livingroom through the Vestibule and note the character and detail of the original door and woodwork. The Living Room is a haven for those that appreciate bespoke design. The hardwood floors are Rhomb-style parquet surrounded by a Crossroads Border. Certainly one-of-a-kind and unparalleled by today's standards. Offering excellent spatiality and natural light, the Living room is further detailed by an original decorative fireplace, window trim and decadent baseboards and a bold and sturdy original staircase. The Dining Room, which can easily fit a 6-top table, offers two windows surrounded in original trim, chair rail and baseboards. There is also a beautiful chandelier that will remain. In the rear of the first floor is the well-appointed kitchen, which features a service staircase, and the laundry room. Outside is a well-kept yard with newer fencing where you can have your own little urban sanctuary, BBQ with friends, or let the dog out. The second floor offers 3 well-sized bedrooms that each have a closet and a ceiling fan and an updated bathroom. There is also a finished attic that is used as a home office. This is accessed by a private staircase and offers an excellent option to work from home or write the next great American novel. Only steps to the bus and within walking distance of the train, Main Street in Manayunk, shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars, Manayunk towpath, the Schuylkill river trail and more. A few moments drive from the Wissahickon Creek and park trails as well as shopping. Central location to the city and suburbs and convenient to all main roads. The entire home was re-wired in 2017 and removed all the knob & tube electric. The roof was replaced in 2018. A custom storage rack was built in the basement in 2017. This home does not have a deeded parking space, but the owners lease a parking spot in the adjacent lot for 100/month.
