There’s no other house like this one in South Philly – If you like an edgy, Anthropologie vibe, you will love 1718 Wolf Street!
This is an artfully appointed Girard Estates row house with approximately 1572 sq ft of living space. This unique bright and airy property is full of surprises, fun architectural details, and lots of original character. One enters the house through a vibrant vestibule, and you’ll notice the original refurbished hardwood flooring which runs through the living room into the dining room. The high ceilings on the first floor give this home an expansive feel, along with the depth of the property which allows for windows on three sides to fill the rooms with natural light at all times of the day. The living room features a reclaimed wood wall which accents the original hardwood flooring. The dining room sits at the center of the home, and is one of the coolest rooms on the first floor with its painted corrugated metal ceiling, and an exposed brick wall. The kitchen has been updated with black soapstone counter tops, shaker-style cabinetry and a deep farmhouse style sink. Still intact however, is the delicate 1920’s backsplash tile which adds a little color and lots of character. The kitchen also has a high ceiling, and features a pantry closet with floor to ceiling shelving. Beyond the kitchen one enters the conveniently placed laundry room and the nearby powder room. The powder room has a reclaimed wood door and a custom vanity with a stamped brass sink. Then out to the walled-in patio with novel planters and enough space for outdoor dining, a grill, and lots of potted plants. The Second floor features three spacious bedrooms, a dressing room, and a full bathroom. There are also five closets on this floor. On this floor too one sees unique design elements such as areas of rediscovered 1920’s wallpaper, and two of the bedrooms have custom pine board ceilings. The basement runs the full length of the home with ample storage space, multiple work and project areas, and high enough ceilings to allow for a conversion into finished additional living space. The current owner recently added four Mitsubishi split air conditioners / heaters – one in each bedroom, and one downstairs.
