Property Description

THIS IS A RARE OFFERING CONSISTING OF TWO SEPARATELY DEEDED ADJACENT LOTS - 1403 AND 1405 N. WEST STREET. THE PROPERTIES MUST CONVEY TOGETHER AND THE PRICE INCLUDES BOTH LOTS. This is an outstanding home in so many aspects. Live in this European flair "pied a terre" and walk everywhere to work, dine, play, and enjoy everything within the downtown business and entertainment center including the Hotel DuPont, Mikimotos, The Grand, etc. Then walk back to your home oasis and sanctuary! The offering includes an extra lot affording you the rare luxury of two off street parking spots in the heart of the city and a beautiful garden oasis. No detail has been spared in this exquisite retreat. 2 Master Suites including 2 generously sized custom closets, 2 well-lit off-street parking spots, 2 scenic views (one city and one water / park), and 2 entries. The unique design features an abundance of easy indoor and outdoor sanctuary space and is located within steps to enjoy the outdoor wonders of the Brandywine River Park system. The home's entrance vestibule opens into a delightful open plan living room / parlor and sitting room, full of light, beautiful hardwood floors, a faux fireplace, recessed lighting, turned staircase and then flows into a formal dining room for ease of entertaining. The renovated kitchen is nicely designed and appointed for ease of cooking. It features a stone tile floor, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and a spacious pantry. Upstairs, the middle floor features a large master bedroom suite which includes a custom walk in closet (approx. 10x10!) and en-suite bath with Carrera marble shower, ample linen closet and stacked washer and dryer. In the main hallway, there is a powder room for guests and an office/ guest bedroom with tons of windows for abundant natural light. On the third floor sits another lovely renovated second master/guest suite. This tranquil retreat with soaking tub, ample sunlight and customized lighting package is an escape in itself. There is also an additional walk-in closet. This residence offers many outdoor options. There's a recently renovated front porch and two garden patio areas, one at the rear and one on the extra side lot for outdoor dining, entertaining or just enjoying the quietude and the songs of the visiting birds. The elevated view from the porch is a great way to relax and just watch the world go by. Also featured is a 10-x10 potting shed (with electricity) above the garden terrace, featuring an outdoor mounted large screen TV for fall football parties and overhead string lighting. The entire garden area is enclosed and landscaped for your privacy. This home is located in the historic Midtown Brandywine neighborhood, noted for its active Neighborhood Association and numerous annual social events including the Progressive Dinner, Block Parties, Chili Cookoff, etc. Take a short walk down to the end of the block and you willll be delighted by a spectacular view of the Brandywine River and the Mill Race waterway that runs alongside it. Join the many dog walkers and people enjoying the park and the beautiful walking trails along the river and near the Brandywine Zoo. This home also affords easy access to major roadways, Amtrak and is a short 25 minute drive to Philadelphia Airport. Be sure to include this gem (and its adjacent lot) on your tour.
