Situated on one of the most beautiful and picturesque blocks in Philadelphia, this Washington Square West home has some unbelievable curb appeal complemented with a seasonal cherry tree blossom canopy that is truly unmatched.

Enter into the open first floor and immediately notice the sliding glass Pella doors that let in an abundance of natural light. The kitchen was opened up during a previous renovation and has plenty of granite countertop space and honey maple cabinets with more than ample storage.
