2139 Christian Street
Welcome to 2139 Christian Street. This well-maintained and recently updated 3-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom south-facing home offers 2,000 square feet of living space along with a surprisingly large and private backyard, right in the heart of highly sought-after Graduate Hospital.
Walk into the spacious living room and dining room with custom-made cornice boards and recessed lighting. Entertaining is easy with an open layout and plenty of room to entertain guests. Make your way to the kitchen, which had a recent facelift with new subway tile backsplash and crown molding, and is complete with granite countertops, plenty of cabinet space, and newer stainless steel appliances. Throughout the first floor you’ll find stylish yet durable faux hardwood flooring and high ceilings. Rounding out the first level of this property is a HUGE backyard with an extended patio and plenty of grass for kids or pets to run around in. Or, you can have friends over for a barbecue when it’s nice out and make use of the combination grill/smoker and patio furniture set, all of which are included with the property!
Upstairs on the second floor you’ll find a full bathroom and two bedrooms, both of which feature plenty of closet and storage space. Both bedrooms are large, and either can be used as an office or playroom. Walk upstairs to your sunny master suite, which spans the entire third floor. The master suite features a custom en-suite master bath that is bright and spacious, as well as an extra-large closet.
No South Philly home is complete without a basement, and this one does not disappoint - this house has a fully finished basement that includes a half bathroom along with a laundry room with a newer washer & dryer. The basement could be used for entertainment, exercise, extra storage space, or anything you’d like!
Beyond ample space and many recent upgrades, this home boasts some additional perks including an ADT Pulse security system, a Nest smart thermostat, hardwiring for surround sound, a ground anchor to lock your bike/scooter/motorcycle out front, and an efficient tankless water heater. It’s also worth mentioning the convenience of Christian being a 2-way street: not only is there plenty of parking, but there is no need to worry about blocking traffic if you have to throw on your flashers and unpack your car. Considering the amount of space, all of the modern upgrades you could ask for, unique custom features, and the exceptional location, this home has it all.
Your new home is right across the street from the locally-beloved Sidecar Bar & Grille, and just steps away from Ultimo Coffee. You’re also just a short walk away from many more local favorites including Los Camaradas, Loco Pez, Chick's, Fitzwater Street Philly Bagels, Dock Street Brewery, and the abundance of shopping & dining along the west end of South Street. Graduate Hospital is a thriving, unique, walkable, and remarkably friendly neighborhood nestled just below the two beautiful areas of Fitler Square and Rittenhouse. Walking to Center City is a breeze, and you still have access to all that charming South Philly has to offer. Schedule your showing today!
