This 3-story restored 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath brick residence at 1331 S 16th is one of the most thoughtfully remodeled homes in Philadelphia. The current owner has meticulously maintained its character while creating the energy efficiency home of the future. The next owner will reap the benefits of that hard work -- low maintenance, low utility bills, and low taxes (7 more years on the tax abatement). Inside the entry, natural hardwood floors and a large picture window in the living room carry light all the way through to the kitchen. The open kitchen is well appointed with stainless steel appliances, shaker cabinets, tile backsplash, and stone countertops. A convenient powder room and backyard that is perfect for BBQing or dinner al fresco round out the first floors. Upstairs, the second floor features three spacious bedrooms, a large tiled hall bath, and laundry. The master suite fills the entire 3rd floor, and includes a 5-piece marble bath and a huge skylit walk-in closet. The finished basement gets tons of natural light from the expanded front window, making the bedroom, den/office, and full bath perfect for guests or your own getaway! This 2100sf home has room for everyone, but amazingly it is the less obvious upgrades that really set it apart. This 100% electric-powered house features a high efficiency HVAC system, recessed LED lights, spray foam insulation, a new large tankless hot water heater (2018), and new roof (2017). The city is in the process of approving the permit for a solar panel elevated canopy, to make the house completely energy self-sufficient Out front, the newly planted tree (2017) is a nice metaphor for all the improvements in Newbold and surrounding area, where the number of great restaurants, coffee shops, and bars grows by the day.
