Have you dreamed about living on a quaint street within a stone's throw of the downtown while parking two full-sized SUVs in your garage? Would you like to work out of a very private home office with a separate entrance from a side street? Would you love to relax with a glass of wine on a huge deck overlooking downtown? All of these are possible in a unique converted carriage house the likes of which only come on the market once every ten years. Nestled on a quiet one-way street one block north of Spring Garden is 1916 Brandywine. Enter through the front door and walk up the steps to the Main Level located on a high second floor. The Main Level features an open-concept kitchen, dining, and living area; master bedroom with a walk-in closet; master bath; and a small room that could be a den or a baby room. The recently upgraded kitchen features new stainless steel appliances and a large skylight over the sink. The living area's oversized window overlooks lovely tree-lined Brandywine Street while the master bedroom window opens to a one-block-long Monterey Street. A large bath boasts a Jacuzzi tub and a glass-enclosed shower. A beautiful oak stairway leads to a recently rebuilt 40' roof-deck overseeing the City skyline. With a cute half bath at the top of the stair and a wooden trellis, this deck is your outdoor living room and entertainment space in the sky. The ground floor features a second entrance from the side street into a two-room suite complete with a full bath - a perfect home office or a very private bedroom suite with a den. This area is connected with the rest of the house via an artsy castle-like hallway that also holds laundry and storage. A two-car garage opens to Brandywine via custom side-hinged doors and easily fits two full-size SUVs in tandem with ample loft and ground-level storage space. Designer touches abound throughout this unique property. This gem is located in the most desirable part of the Art Museum Area, a cultural life and outdoor recreation mecca. The Philadelphia Museum of Art, Rodin Museum, the Barnes Foundation, the Franklin Institute, and the Academy of Natural Sciences are all within a 5-10 minutes walk, and so is the Boathouse Row, Schuylkill River Trail, and Fairmount Park - the nation's largest urban park.
