Fantastic NEW RENOVATION!*Porchfront HOUSE!*GLIDER Sofa*See PICS! Read Listing!*Ready Aug 1!

Wow! This is an incredible renovation of a classic Philadelphia porch front house in Port Richmond right on Allegheny Avenue. As you'll see from our pictures, work isn't finished yet, but we're close enough for you to see the house in-person. The house will be available for leases starting as soon as August 1 and as late as September 1. There are so many unique aspects to this house:1) A FRONT yard for plantings, including your own mature pine (Christmas) tree;2) A large front porch featuring a classic outdoor glider sofa (it's at the house, but not set up outside yet);3) Original leaded-glass front half-moon window and interior full-leaded glass vestibule door;4) Beautiful tiled vestibule floor with custom-painted walls & neo-Victorian chandelier;5) Newly installed light-Ash solid hardwood THROUGHOUT THE HOUSE;6) New built-in 1st floor powder room with designer floor tile and vanity, including a tile feature wall too;7) Refinished dark kitchen cabinets... and LOTS of them, in an oversized kitchen including an island separating the living/dining & kitchen space;8) HUGE paved backyard, with a planting patch in the back & vintage storage shed;9) Top-end electric fireplace insert (not wood burning) to replace the vintage electric log set in place when we purchased the house;10) Designer-inspired complementary color scheme throughout the house, completely & newly painted;11) High ceilings with recessed lighting, replacing the drop ceilings previously located in all rooms in the house;12) All new vanity & fixtures, tiling + an original SKYLIGHT in the bathroom (uncovered during renovations);13) Extra large FRONT and REAR bedrooms + good-sized middle bedroom... three rooms in all, great for sharing or families;14) Full unfinished basement that runs almost the entire length of this long Allegheny Avenue building. This location is in the heart of PORT RICHMOND, immediately adjacent to FISHTOWN, with super-close access to CENTER CITY, Philadelphia, and TEMPLE UNIVERSITY. There's a beautiful view of the center city skyline out the window of the north-facing 2nd floor rear bedroom. This is a great WALKING neighborhood, rating a 93/100 "WALKER'S PARADISE" rating at Just short steps away: Allegheny Square, River Wards Cafe, New Wave Cafe, The Dinner House, M & M Restaurant, and numerous other restaurants, delis, groceries and businesses serving the area's heritage Polish/American population.
