Description

Welcome Home! If you are looking to live in West Philly, you are looking for authenticity. That inherent sense of realness, brewed over generations to create a particular flavor and style- where people, place, and personality is reflected in the neighborhood culture. Approaching this 4 Bedroom, 1600sf home at 5338 Webster, we are struck by the prominence of the front doors+GG setback from the street. A single lane of one way traffic has parking on both sides. The retaining wall made of natural stone surrounds the garden bursting with diverse plantings, welcoming and pleasant. Stepping on the concrete porch, we imagine spending days sipping coffee and socializing with long time neighbors and watching the world pass by. Emerged in the brick facade, a stained leaded glass decorative transom quietly supervises the front window, a beautiful badge of West Philly homes of this era(c. 1925) . As we step inside, we are embraced by a vestibule with original wall ornamentation. Craftsmanship, and character is to be appreciated. The home feels lovingly maintained, the charm of many years preserved . The living area is spacious with hardwood flooring and a decorative original mantle. Take note of the woodwork of the banasters and stairs, while passing under the uniquely arched transition into the dining area. The brightness of the home is notable. The kitchen has solid hardwood cabinetry, dishwasher, gas cooking and ceramic tile flooring. A cat door leads inconspicuously into the basement. In the rear, a large deck provides an area for outdoor entertaining with additional yardspace for possible gardening. On the second level find four bedrooms and one bathroom. In the front room, we find the bay window appealing, as well as the vestigial gas fireplace. With more and more activities taking place at home, we can imagine the configurations of the middle bedrooms being purposed in a variety of ways such as office space or a walk in closet. The home has central air as an add on, as well as ceiling fans throughout the property. This home is a great starter home or upgrade for more space for those with a sense of originality, and in tune with the West Philly experience this definitely a home worth checking out. Less than a block walk to the 34 trolley, near everything West Philly and Cedar Park has to offer. Short transit distance to UPenn, USciences, Drexel and Center City. 20 minutes by car to the Philadelphia International Airport. 15 minutes to 30th Street Station. This home is waiting for your finishing touches and customizations to continue the next chapter in its story.
