Property Description

Showings begin Friday., Sept 22. You will find so much to love about 7851 Spring Avenue --from its old world charm to its modern updates and ideal location within the heart of a walkable community. This 1850 Victorian sits steps from an array shops, restaurants, parks and the regional rail station with direct service to Temple University, Center City and the Philadelphia International Airport. As you walk inside, you're drawn to this home's original architectural details like the hardwood floors, trim work and large windows. Bathed in natural light, the living room is anchored by a gas burning fireplace with an intricately carved mantle. The beautifully updated kitchen offers modern touches like concrete countertops, copper farmhouse sink, custom cabinetry, pantry, stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar. Off the kitchen, you''ll find the formal dining room which is large enough for holiday parties yet cozy enough for quiet dinners. The family room/den on the rear of the home was added in 2012. Highlights include exposed stone walls, vaulted ceiling, skylight and French doors to the back deck. A powder room completes the first level. Upstairs, you'll find the primary suite, with updated en-suite and TWO walk-in closets --the large of which had been transformed from a bedroom. On this second level you'll also find two other good-sized bedrooms and a hall bathroom with glass shower stall and original claw foot tub. Bonus....Chores will be made easy with a laundry closet on the second floor conveniently located between the bedrooms. A fully finished third floor has two additional bedrooms that can be used as guest rooms, private office, studio, or home gym. Thanks to the 2 zone central air, the third floor is cooled by its own central air unit --keeping the third floor comfortable all year round. The unfinished basement offers plenty of storage or room to set up a work bench. The backyard is an entertainer's paradise with a back deck, a pair of patios, separate fire pit area and enough lawn for a game of volleyball, a play set or to let the dog run. If you love the uniqueness and beauty of older homes, don't miss this truly special 19th century gem.
