We have a rule here on the PhillyMag Genuine Estate & Dwelling channel: With incredibly couple exceptions, we never aspect residences whose rooms are empty. It is really hard for numerous people to consider what a plain empty box may appear like with their furnishings in it, so we do our component to stimulate their imaginations by jogging shots of rooms with furnishings currently in them, both actual or digital.
I do make the occasional exception to this rule, while, when a dwelling has rooms that are visually sturdy enough to carry the pics on their own. This rehabbed Cedar Park rowhouse for sale is one particular of all those exceptions.

The good quality of the perform should really be very clear the minute you lay eyes on the property, but it really should also shine through in the enclosed solar porch. It retains the primary dwelling-space window and adds to it a vintage-model tile flooring.
Just one of the chief ways in which the designers brought the house into the here and now is by leaving the brick social gathering wall with the property to its west uncovered in most locations. Combined with the glowing restored parquet floors, attractive fire mantel and white painted banister, that uncovered brick wall makes the dwelling space pop.
In the eating home, designed-in reclaimed-wood shelving and a darkish stain on the banister of the stairs to the basement — which I suspect were initially closed off, given this house’s age, but are now open — give it some pizzazz.
Modern and rustic design satisfy in the kitchen area. Listed here the reclaimed-wood shelves and island insert heat to the modern day slate-gray cabinets, white quartz counter tops and ground, farmhouse sink and stainless-steel appliances.

The major bedroom will get loads of light by means of its bay window, and it too has an exposed-brick accent wall. (The rear bed room has a person as well.)
The hall tub also mixes the contemporary, the rustic and the classic. The clawfoot tub with shower is the classic component. The black Italian tile that surrounds it and the bathroom and the hexagonal tile flooring are the contemporary portion. And the mirror and double vanity, the two produced from that reclaimed wooden, gives the rustic touch. Fashionable vessel encounter basins comprehensive the glimpse, and a Bluetooth speaker offers seem.
The basement rec room functions exposed primary beams, a contemporary metal divider on the stairs and some much more reclaimed wood.
The entire rest room subsequent to it is absolutely contemporary. It also has a soaking tub with a rain shower head.
The designers also rehabbed the outside the house, with sidewalk lights in entrance and a lit stone path in its partly landscaped yard.
This stunner is also conveniently situated. The Baltimore Avenue organization district and the Route 34 trolley lie two blocks to the south, giving several appealing and special searching and eating activities. The Mariposa Food items Co-Op is a couple of blocks to the east on Baltimore.
