Fantastic opportunity with abundant and architecturally distinct space at 2043 Fitzwater, a diamond in the rough in Graduate Hospital. You'll notice the house's vernacular Romanesque façade differs from, yet compliments, local historic federal brick fronts around it. It sports a wide Chicago-style triple part window on the first floor, large bay on the second floor, and triplet arched third floor windows. Strikingly beautiful and practical art nouveau mosaic tile graces the vestibule. Beyond is the large front parlor- interesting features include two mantle spaces and window benches with storage. The room is open to the dining space/den featuring oak wood floors, board and batton wall paneling, and oak nouveau built-in hutch. This space also offers a half bath. Past this is the breakfast room, and at the back sits the large kitchen, which offers a new stove/microwave and could be a culinary delight. Even though these large rooms stretch over most of the lot, you'll be happy to find a decent sized patio/garden with gate to the back sidewalk easement. Head upstairs to two large bedrooms. At the front of the house is the bay window room, presenting twin closets and southern light diffused through leaded glass. At the back is an even larger bed space, big enough to be two rooms, with several closets. Sliding glass doors lead to a balcony. Between the two bedrooms is a huge vintage bathroom with shower and sunken tub. Head up to the third floor for four more bedrooms. The back and two middle rooms are on the medium side while the front is sizeable, in the footprint of the front room below. A smaller vintage bath can be found on this level, complete with cast iron clawfoot tub. Don't forget to look up while in the hall, or you'll miss the Florentine-glass skylight! You'll also find a light-well for a second skylight opportunity in the back-middle bedroom. Though in need of love, 2043 Fitzwater gives it all back with a greater-than-typical amount of space and unique opportunities for architectural salvage. Imagine how much charm this regally classic Philadelphia home could evoke when introduced to updates with care! The house has a serviceable, gas-fired radiant heat system for comfortable warm air in the winter. A full partially finished basement with soapstone laundry sink lends space for extra storage or another living space. You're sure to find something interesting at 2043 Fitzwater- a canvas fresh for new life!
