City Living with a Suburban Feel

Single Family Home


A spacious and gracious twin on a quiet one-way street, yet conveniently located to everything! Where can you find city living with a suburban feel? The 500 block of Hermitage, of course! Loaded with charm and character, this impeccable home is everything you’ve been looking for. Sit and relax for a few moments under the covered front porch before coming in for your tour. Enter through a proper foyer with transom lights, marble slab, and inner door. Oak hardwood floors begin in the hallway and flow through the living and dining rooms. The grand living room sits to the left with high ceilings, beautiful crown molding, oversized and light filled windows, built-in bookshelves and TV cabinet, complete with a magnificent gas fireplace centerpiece with handcrafted trim-work and reclaimed antique spindles. A 1st floor powder room is located just down the hall. Once part of a set comprising the interior foyer doors, the powder room door was discovered in the basement and restored for its present use. The open dining room and kitchen sit at the end of the hall separated by a granite topped island bar. The newer kitchen features granite counters, oak cabinets, stainless appliances, and a gas range. Head out back for yet another covered porch, this one overlooking the yard. The 2nd floor features two bedrooms, a hall bath, stacked washer and dryer, and a generous main bedroom suite with a tiled bath. The 3rd floor is an open fourth bedroom. Steps from the shops and restaurants of Ridge Ave, Gorgas Park, and the trails of The Wissahickon plus multiple routes to Center City and the surrounding suburbs. If the house doesn’t seal the deal by itself…the location surely will! Showings begin on Friday, October 23rd.
