    Description

    Welcome to the Castle on Castle Avenue! Tucked away in the heart of vibrant Passyunk Square is a rare jewel of a home. Steeped in history, this grand residence has been lovingly restored, updated and brought into the current era over the last 4 years. Owned by only 4 families over it's 100+ year history, this stately structure retains many of its original features and charm while tasteful updates provide the best in modern living. The multi-functional layout allows plenty of space for living, working, exercising, studying and playing and is perfectly suited for navigating the "new normal". Step through the grand entrance into the impressive center hall. To your left, you'll find french doors leading into the light drenched living room featuring high ceilings, antique chandelier, original, inlaid hardwood floors and moldings, marble fireplace surround, wall mirror, grand piano and stained glass transoms. Beyond the living room is a sun room with walls of windows well suited to many uses such as an exercise area, play room, or home office. On the other side of the entry hall is the combination dining room and gourmet kitchen. Again, these rooms abound with many original features such as inlaid floors, antique wall mirror and fireplace surround. The kitchen has been extensively renovated to include all new SS appliances and fixtures, marble counters and abundant white cabinetry. Truly a cook's dream kitchen! Beyond the kitchen you'll find an enormous walk-in pantry, half bath and door leading out to the spacious rear deck and attached garage. The elevated deck area provides privacy and plenty of space for socially distant outdoor entertaining. The oversized attached garage has rare off-street parking for one car and plenty of additional storage. Ascend the grand staircase to the second floor where you will find the lavish primary bedroom suite. The current owners have spared no expense in re-configuring this entire area into a decadent and restful retreat. The primary bedroom features an exposed brick wall, original hardwood floors, window seat, ceiling fan and stained glass transoms. There is a brand new sliding barn door to the enormous en-suite bath with oversized stall shower, free-standing soaking tub, double pedestal sinks, stacking W/D and large walk-in closet beyond. This floor also has another spacious bedroom perfect as a nursery, kids room, home office, craft room, 2nd floor lounge etc etc. One more flight of stairs brings you to the 3rd floor with a central landing and skylight, remodeled hall bath and two more bright, spacious bedrooms. This floor would make a wonderful self-contained guest suite or separate floor for growing children or extended family. Finally, there is a finished, walk-out basement with tiled floors, full sized laundry, two large storage areas and spacious entertaining area with pool table and built-in dry bar. This home is fully wired with home automation technology and an upgraded security system. Top this off with extensive gardens and wrought iron fencing which gracefully surround this prime corner property, it's stellar location only a short stroll to Passyunk Square dining, shopping and entertainment, and the holiday splendor of the Miracle on 13th Street and you have an urban oasis unlike any other.
