Property Description

In the neighborhood called Garden Court, the 4600 block of Larchwood is considered one of University City's "best" blocks! Here's your opportunity to live in an incredibly handsome 3-story twin c.1921 with loads of its original details, plus many upgrades and years of good care. Move-in ready, it has 5 BRs and 2 baths in approximately 2718 square feet of indoor space, plus a front garden and a recently landscaped back yard/patio where azeleas and hydrangeas will be blooming soon. On the first floor, there's a year-round sun porch in the front; a large living room with a fireplace "nook;" a dining room with a bay of sunny windows, and a high-end kitchen (not a contractor-grade job, as so many are these days). If you like to cook, you'll
love the Jenn-Aire cooktop with a downdraft vent, grille & 4 burners, plus the Viking gas range and the Sub Zero refrigerator. Have a formal meal in the spacious dining room; eat at the kitchen island, or head out to the back patio for a summertime cook-out! Upstairs the 2nd floor front family room is an informal place to watch tv and hang out. The main bathroom has its original tile, marble & leaded glass, a huge soaking tub, and a separate shower. The 2 bedrooms on this floor can be used together as a suite with a dressing room or nursery, or they can be used separately. Each has a wall of armoire-style closets. The rear bedroom has an adjacent "sleeping porch" to catch the summer breezes. On the third floor, there are 3 more comfy bedrooms, a bath, and an open study or den. Old-house lovers will admire the gleaming oak floors, beamed ceilings, leaded glass, handsome front staircase (plus still-in-use back stairs) and original woodwork. Practical buyers will be happy to hear that many windows have been replaced with tilt in models for easy cleaning! What's the school situation? This location is within the catchment area for the very highly-regarded Penn Alexander K-8 public grade school. Location in the catchment area doesn't guarantee admittance, but for the last few years, all of the kindergarten applicants have been accepted.
