    Description

    Throughout its decades, the wonderful character of Philadelphia has been synonymous with "Independence." So it's no mistake that situated on a tiny one-way street of the same name in a small Northern-most neighborhood of this great City- one would find a singular, understated property that still packs a wallop and holds its own. Nestled amongst Victorian "Painted Ladies" in its idyllic, quiet, and green setting...this one demands attention. It proclaims, "If a sleek, newly renovated Mid-Century Modern Twin circa 1960 can be charming- then I am IT!" What other home enjoys such lush lawns, an expansive private backyard with brick patio, expertly landscaped beds and heirloom shrubbery, yet also offers such care-free, contemporary living? This tight, energy efficient 2 Story uses its spaces fantastically. Cooled by Central AC, and graced by sparkling new windows, the Living and Dining areas are grounded by gleaming, newly refinished original Hardwood Oak flooring which meanders throughout its freshly painted rooms. A brand new Kitchen with white quartz countertops, soft close cabinets, stainless energy efficient appliances, glass tiled backsplash, and pristine ceramic designer flooring offer exceptional standards. Two rear Bedrooms are served by a professionally upgraded Bath keeping the best of its quality craftsmanship and authentic original design. A sharply finished, light-filled, split lower level with fun new designer Linoleum flooring, offers an additional spacious Guestroom or Rec Room capabilities. Added Half Bath, Laundry, Storage, and direct interior access to both front Garage, as well as Back Yard- all ensure practical living ease. Quality restored and newly painted Masonry, newer front Roof (kindly replaced and coordinated for neighboring Twin as well), upgraded Electrics... Commuter's paradise with a quick jaunt to Regional Rail through walkable Community of caring neighbors who value trees and architecture, and are served by award-winning Town Watch, and an active Civic Association- East Oak Lane is a lovely place to dwell! Enjoy LOW City Taxes plus amazing access to Center City, Northwest, and Northeast Philly neighborhoods, as well as adjacent Montgomery County Suburbs- offering a plethora of excellent shopping and dining amenities.
