Warmth and charm brim over both inside and out at this 3-story c 1910 twin on a lovely double lot across from East Falls~ delightful McMichael Park. The home is set high and far back from the street creating a sense of privacy and quiet. It is reached by a pretty brick walkway leading past lovely gardens and an expansive lawn. Note the brilliant blue clematis climbing the lamppost along the walkway adding a welcoming note. Inside the home is spacious but manageable with lots of period detail including rounded window jams, deep baseboards, built-ins, bay window with window seat, lovely wood burning fireplace and exposed wood floors throughout. The home~s original living room (with the fireplace and built-ins) is used by the current owners as the dining room which works well. The living room (formerly the dining room) is comfortable and roomy. New wall oven, cook top and refrigerator have just been added to the kitchen which opens to an inviting covered brick patio. The first floor also includes a spacious entry hall and a powder room off the kitchen. French doors from the dining room lead to a small enclosed porch. Upstairs the five bedrooms are all a good size with excellent closet space. There are two full bathrooms. The main bedroom opens to an irresistible sunroom likely used as a sleeping porch at the time the home was built. This is a well maintained home which shows beautifully. D~cor is crisp and uncluttered. Systems are in good working order and there is central air with a new compressor. 3212 Midvale is close to the train, major highways, the river drives, Fairmount Park and center city is only 10 minutes away. A total charmer, not to be missed.
