Nestled on one of the most desirable blocks in Powelton Village, 3601 Baring Street was originally owned by William H. Brown, chief engineer of the Pennsylvania Railroad. That Italianate structure was replaced by a modern home in 1986, incorporating design elements of the original with a more open floor plan and a large number of windows, bathing the interior in light. The gated garden entrance on 36th Street, with red brick walkways and arched doorway, leads to the main floor foyer. The meticulously maintained hardwood floors take you to a vast library/study/family room option with built-in shelves. On the first floor are 2 spacious bedrooms and ample full bath, with access to the large 2-car garage and basement.
On the second floor is a wonderfully airy living space consisting of a 2-story living room, dining room with built-in shelves, powder room, laundry facilities and eat-in updated kitchen. This space will truly impress guests as it is both unique and welcoming, nestled among mature trees with lots of natural light. Create your own outdoor oasis in the screened-in porch, on the second floor, complete with 2-story wooden cathedral ceiling, outdoor power outlets and ceiling fan.
On the third floor, the owner’s suite, filled with light from windows on all four sides, is accessed via a private staircase, providing both seclusion and connectivity to the main space. It includes a large private bathroom, built-in shelves and ample closet space.
The basement, which contains the mechanicals, built-in shelves and a large built-in workbench, is impressive with its engineering and construction. The ceiling height and additional living potential are surprising, considering this is an urban property. The construction spared no expense at the foundation of this property, and future owners can create desirable spaces such as a media/game room, exercise room or workshop area.
Recent improvements include a kitchen upgrade with granite countertops and all new appliances. The windows and hot water heater were replaced over the past 5 years and a new HVAC system for the first floor was installed last year.
The 2-car garage is attached, and the brick driveway will accommodate additional vehicles as well. A brick patio area is located in the back of the property, accessible from the garage or from the driveway. The property is located in Powelton Village, close to both Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania, and minutes away from Rittenhouse Square, the Parkway's museums and the zoo.
