This storybook house is located on a quaint little street directly across from Liberty Lands Park, a one-of-a-kind community green space with tons of events, fitness classes, a playground and a dog park. The charming exterior is reminiscent of an English cottage, complete with blue shutters, pretty iron window boxes, and a beautiful view of the park. The home’s warmth and character continue when you enter the main floor, a nice open floorplan living space that proves that you don’t need a huge house to entertain. The living room has high ceilings, an oversize front window and woodburning fireplace with exposed brick wall surround. The eat-in kitchen was recently renovated, complete with stainless steel appliances, handsome cabinetry with glass-front uppers and a large pantry. The enormous backyard is a gardener’s paradise with tons of mature plantings and a functional, custom-built potting shed. Trinity stairs lead to the second floor, which has a serene master bedroom with beautiful original random-width pine floors and fireplace hearth, two large windows and plenty of closet space — not to mention that view!–and a hall bathroom that’s an amazing blend of vintage charm and modern convenience, with crisp white hex tile flooring and subway tile shower surround, a gorgeous vintage pedestal sink, custom built-in storage, walk-in closet and super-convenient laundry. The third floor consists of two charming bedrooms with original pine flooring and dormered ceilings. With a walk score of 96, the house is in a prime location within minutes to shopping, restaurants, public transit, and everything Northern Liberties has to offer.
