Many Philadelphia homeowners have long stories of how they found the perfect home after a series of real estate adventures.
Erin George, an obstetrician-gynecologist with a busy surgery practice, didn’t have time for that.
But with a bit of luck and her mother’s help in her search, she has found what she thinks is the perfect place for her and her son.
“I wanted more space,” she said, and the three-bedroom, three-bathroom home in the Garden Court section of West Philly had that and more, including neighbors she immediately loved.
It was also ready to move into, having been totally refurbished by the investment company that put it on the market.
Virtually everything in the 125-year-old home had been replaced when she moved there in 2020, including the roof, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, kitchen, bathroom and windows.
George, who was renting in Brewerytown, added a roof terrace and front patio, installed ceiling fans with lights throughout the house, installed custom blinds in all rooms and had custom closets built in all of them. the rooms.
Now, however, it’s time to relocate for a career opportunity in Tampa, Florida.
George says the open first floor is perfect for him to keep an eye on his son while he plays. “I can see it everywhere,” she says.
The handcrafted front door leads to a spacious living room with a screened porch and a brick accent wall.
The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and modern white cabinets with open shelving above.
The second level has three bedrooms and a full bathroom. The master bedroom has a dressing room and an adjoining bathroom.
Access to the roof terrace, which includes a sail for protection from the sun, is via the master bedroom.
The finished basement has a full bathroom and a laundry room and ample storage space.
There is also a garage for one car and space for another car.
The home is listed by Brenda Beiser of Redfin Corp. for $599,900.
