When opportunity knocks you need to answer the door. This home is most certainly a rare opportunity in East Falls. You are hard pressed to find a two-story two-bedroom twin with a large yard, walkout basement and garage offered in this neighborhood but to know that there are only two of its kind is like hitting the lottery. As you approach the property you will notice the garage, driveway and parking cut out. Follow the front stairs to the side front entry door that opens into the spacious living room with coat closet. Just on the other side of the living room wall is the eat-in-kitchen with wood cabinets, refrigerator, and gas stove. Laminate flooring continues from the kitchen through the hallway and into the two generous sized bedrooms each with a large closet and ceiling fan. Completing this level is a three-piece hall bathroom with tub and shower combination, vanity sink and ceramic tile tub surround. Just outside of the home is an oasis in the city. Take full advantage of having such a large patio, garden, and fenced yard. Fire up the grill and relax while entertaining your guests in this great retreat and if you have a green thumb or if you have ever wanted to have your very own urban vegetable and herb garden now is the perfect opportunity to grow your very own herbs and add them to your culinary masterpieces. The lower level of this home has a finished area that would make a perfect media room, home office or studio and just on the other side of the connecting staircase to the main level and the width of the home you will find the very large storage area with laundry facilities, mechanicals and just when you thought this home could not get any better you find a Pittsburgh potty right here in Philadelphia. This half bath is waiting for your finishing touches. So what are you waiting for, go grab your tools and add your very own personal touches to this wonderful twin because with a little imagination and some sweat equity, you can reap reward with this beauty.
