This 2 bed, 1 bath first floor unit in the iconic Garden Court Condominiums combines modern living with original Art Deco details. This is one of the few units in the 116 unit, 8 building complex that has gas cooking and outdoor patio access in addition to its functional and easy to live in floorplan. A stroll down a tree-lined street and handsome wrought iron gate with secured entry welcomes you. Just a short walk past the koi pond and fountain, complete with outdoor seating and vibrant landscaping, leads you to the Gardenia Court (G Building) entrance. Once through the second secure entry point and into the foyer leads you straight to your first floor door. Upon entering, you’ll notice the beautifully maintained original golden oak flooring, high 9 foot ceilings, recently installed energy efficient windows, and custom blinds that continue throughout the unit. The living room showcases triple-wide windows with muntins and a decorative fireplace with tile and hand carved original mantel. The original millwork continues to the built-in bookcase, the wainscoting, crown molding and decorative trim work in each room. The dedicated dining room offers plenty of room for hosting a large dinner party in addition to a storage closet. The bright and sunny kitchen has a stainless steel appliance suite including a recently installed gas range and dishwasher. The updated white, soft-close cabinets have upper glass fronts set over a butcher block countertop as well as a large pantry and extra deep drawers for storage. Best of all, the back doorway provides access to a seating / dining area on the secluded patio. Mirrored window-paned French doors separate the living area from the private areas of the home. The gracious hallway is wide enough to accommodate standing desks or a reading nook with an oversized storage closet to boot. The first of two generously sized bedrooms is off to your left and is outfitted with a ceiling fan for comfortable sleeping and two large closets. Further down, you see the laundry nook with stacked, top of the line, Bosch washer and dryer. The full bath with cast iron tub / shower combination has an original leaded glass window that allows for privacy. Further adding to the Art Deco charm are penny round tile floors and showstopping milk glass tiled walls. In the back of the unit, you’ll find the second large bedroom with double closets and ceiling fan. Garden Court has radiator steam heat and the reasonable HOA fees cover the water and heating, exterior maintenance as well as landscaping and snow removal. Amenities include a heated indoor swimming pool, a fitness center, a community library, and a lounge / entertaining space as well as additional storage for bicycles. The amenities can be accessed through interior passageways without ever having to brave the elements. A dedicated onsite building management and professional maintenance team have overseen many recent capital improvements and are available to residents. Located in the heart of University City, you are minutes from all forms of public transportation, major schools and hospitals, shops, restaurants, parks, and more. With a WalkScore of 93 and BikeScore of 99, you can zip over to Penn’s campus, pop in to ReAnimator Coffee, or head over to Clark Park for its year round farmer’s market. At the time of its building, the Garden Court neighborhood as a whole was called "the most exclusive location in West Philadelphia” by the Philadelphia Inquirer and has since been added to the National Register of Historic Places. Don’t miss your chance to call this charming condo “home”. .
