Welcome to 2616 Coral Street, an adorable 2-story single family semi-detached home in the Kensington neighborhood of Philly, just outside of Fishtown. Truly a rare find in the city, the home offers both a front AND backyard – your private urban oasis. The front yard has a wrought iron fence and gate surrounding it, with front hedges offering privacy from the road and a large, sweet-smelling lavender plant directly outside your front steps. Beautiful wisteria and peonies bloom in the backyard yearly. There are two separate raised garden beds on either side of the yard, perfect for plants and vegetables, with lawn in between and an additional concrete patio area perfect for BBQ and al fresco dining. A side alley offers easy access from the back to the curb without needing to bring your recycling out through the house.
This home has been meticulously maintained and was just completely repainted throughout the interior and exterior, making it truly turn-key. There’s dark hardwood flooring throughout and crown moulding detailing along the living room ceiling. The open floor plan living and dining areas get a ton of natural sunlight through the windows all along that wall, offering eastern exposures. The galley style kitchen is in the back of the house and double glass sliding doors will take you to the backyard. Upstairs are two bedrooms and the full bathroom off the main hall. The master bedroom has an entire wall of closets, and the closets in both bedrooms have custom built-in shelving to optimize storage space. There are new, energy-efficient windows, and gas-fired energy-efficient furnace which is central air capable but right now window unit A/C’s easily cool the entire house comfortably. Gas hot water heater and gas cooking.
