    Description

    This lovely porchfront twin is on the very last block of Catharine St and is abutted by Cobbs Creek Park. Recently renovated for use as a rental, the house is in great condition to move in immediately and add personal touches and upgrades down the road. The main level, with pretty original oak floors with inlaid border, is open-plan with the original turned staircase visually designating the living and dining areas. There's a pretty wood mantel to focus your living room furniture around, leaving space for a formal dining area or set up some stools at the breakfast bar. The kitchen works as-is with its bright white appliances and great cabinet space, but the super functional layout would also benefit from an easy DIY makeover to freshen up the look. Also on the main level is a full laundry room with washer, dryer and storage space. A nice-sized powder room completes the floorplan and is great for guests or cleaning up after grilling and gardening in the big back yard. There's plenty of room for doing both here, plus the breezeway is perfect for bike and trashcan storage. Up on the light-filled second floor, the largest bedroom sits at the front with a bay window and built-in bookcase. The other two rooms are similar in size, and they all share the ceramic tiled hall bath with window over the soaking tub. There's additional storage in the hallway linen closet, and in the full basement. In a convenient location near schools, SEPTA, Morris Rec Center, the Free Library and shopping centers, and of course Cobbs Creek, this charming home should not be missed.
