Spectacular 2 bed, 2 bath condo with new kitchen and bathroom overlooking the courtyard in the iconic Garden Court complex. A handsome wrought iron gate with secured entry welcomes you to Garden Court and a short walk past the koi pond and fountain, complete with outdoor seating, leads you to the Daffodil Court (D Building) entrance. Once through the second secure entry point and past the foyer, a quick zip up the elevator brings you to the entrance to D510. Upon entering, you’ll notice the beautifully maintained original golden oak flooring, high 9 foot ceilings, freshly painted walls, and custom blinds that continue throughout the unit. The combination living room and dining room showcases a decorative fireplace with built-in shelving, dimmable recessed lighting, and a coat closet conveniently located right next to the front door. The kitchen is truly a cook’s dream with one of a kind, handmade, custom Oak cabinetry with soft close Blum dovetail drawers, under cabinet lighting, pull out racks and even a drop down for your iPad or favorite cookbook. A single piece of carved soapstone serves as the countertop with the Samsung stainless steel appliance suite, including gas range, and Bosch dishwasher completing the space. A gracious hallway that leads to the private areas of the home is wide enough to accommodate standing desks or a reading nook with an oversized closet to boot. The first full bath with tub / shower combination has a leaded glass window that allows for privacy and has a recently installed cherry vanity and medicine cabinet. Down the second hallway, with motion activated lighting, is the bright first bedroom with access to the full bathroom and an oversized closet. In the back of the unit, you’ll find the primary bedroom with en suite bathroom. This bedroom has two closets and a ceiling fan for comfortable sleeping. The second full bathroom has been completely renovated with a walk-in shower featuring era-appropriate subway tile, built-in shelving, and another original leaded glass window. An LG washer has also been conveniently tucked in next to the custom, handmade, copper and cherry sink. Both bathrooms also have installed bidets and hairdryers. This is one of the few units in the 116 unit, 8 building complex that has 2 bedrooms as well as gas cooking. Garden Court has radiator heat and the HOA fees cover the water and heating as well as access to the amenities and a small storage unit for bicycles. Amenities include a heated indoor swimming pool, a fitness center, a community library, and a lounge / entertaining space. 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. 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”.
