Property Description for 947 Lawrence Street, Philadelphia, PA 19123

The outside says 'small and cozy'--the inside tells a different story. The house is one of those character filled gems from another era. A true entry foyer is flanked by original bead board, and a glass-paned 'French' door opens into an amazing set of rooms?big rooms crowned with high ceilings, the original high baseboards are anchored by natural wood planked floors bordered with a deep inlaid trim, gorgeous millwork frames the dining room as well as the handsome staircase leading to the upper floors. The living room, full and welcoming, sits at the front with two large windows allowing lots of natural light. The dining room serves its purpose well--an expansive space designed for family dining and social entertaining. The kitchen runs along the back and continues the 'character' with painted wood cabinets, traditional blue hued walls, and white appliances. The back door leads to a back yard?a fenced-in brick patio with a raised bed for gardening and plenty of space for grilling and enjoying the outdoors. The wide banistered staircase, complete with original high risers, leads to a second floor that does not disappoint. More of those gorgeous floors throughout, the first bedroom is a suitable size, has a large window and a decent closet. The second bedroom wow's with it's large open space, two large windows, two standard closets, a built-in enclosed shelving unit, and a chair seat formed from a unique structural detail. The 'retro' bathroom features a vintage mirrored cabinet, a bath and shower combo are enclosed in white with black trim tile, and a matching linoleum floor. The original attic is now an amazing living area. The 'a-frame' ceiling houses a wide space with new wood flooring, a walk-in closet, and two 'dormer' windows allow for ample natural light. This multi-functional space could serve whatever your needs may be. And then there's the 'Ginormous' basement?the old stone walls have been scrubbed and the floor refreshed with a new layer of concrete. This could easily be finished into an amazing living space with room to spare for storage. This tree-lined street is one of the prettiest in the neighborhood?away from the maddening crowd but still close enough to enjoy all the venues and activities that define this community: Liberty Lands Park, the Piazza, No. 2nd st Restaurant Row, the 2nd st Festival, numerous pet facilities, community gardens, great walking & biking, and good mass transit options. This is a MUST SEE!
