About 9 ALDER COURT

Alder Court is a secure and quiet gated community in Washington Square West with spacious courtyards surrounded by brick walkways, magnolia and cherry trees. Located across from Seger Park, the courtyard community can be entered from Lombard or Waverly Streets. This 3.5 story, 4 bedroom and 3 bath townhouse boasts a large main floor that is flooded with light and with custom cabinets in the living and dining rooms. The home is owned by an architect and an artist and is loaded with custom features including the living room Mendota gas fireplace, mantle and screen. The third-floor master suite has a cathedral ceiling and en suite bathroom with a skylight as well as two custom closets with organizing systems and a large new sun deck. The second floor offers 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. This home sits higher than others in the courtyard, so the large, partially finished lower level is only slightly below ground level and has a large window.

Another wonderful feature of this home is a beautiful bricked terrace with fountain overlooking the courtyard. Alder Court is located just a block from Whole Foods, Acme Market, CVS and beautiful Kahn Park, which is maintained by neighborhood volunteers and named for famed architect Louis Kahn. Seger Park includes a large playground, dog run, tennis and basketball courts. This home falls within the award winning General George McCall School catchment. Thomas Jefferson and Pennsylvania Hospitals are within a few blocks and the neighborhood is loaded with wonderful retail shops, coffee houses and restaurants. There are several parking options in the neighborhood and the current owners have a deeded parking space in a gated lot that is available separately for $75,000. There are bike routes through the neighborhood and many public transportation options within two blocks. The walk score for this property is 99 and the transit score is 100.
