    Beautiful character abounds in this spacious twin on a desirable tree-lined block in the Penn Alexander Catchment. Amazing bones include big rooms. Big windows, amazing light throughout the day; a lovely front porch (that you will really use); a small rear yard, beautiful original solid wood and glass front door and vestibule door; original vestibule tile; high-ceilings; original woodwork, detail, and character; leaded glass windows and pocket door; 2 original fireplaces (currently decorative, likely could be working gas and maybe wood burning); original hardwood throughout (all need to be sanded and refinished). Original butler pantry. 5 Bedrooms plus large, bright family room plus open den (that would likely be space for 2nd full bath plus perhaps a laundry room). This home has had the same owner since 1958 and has some recent updates such as the boiler (2016), hot water heater (2017), updated electric with no active knob & tube wiring. The home has a functioning kitchen and full bath but really needs a new kitchen, baths, paint, some plaster work, refinished floors, pointing, and redoing the rear shed. The home has some settlement but is structurally sound. This block has tons of Penn Alexander (and future Penn Alexander) students. So neighborly with block parties, people out on porches, just really awesome friendly neighbors. And what a convenient University City location. Within 2 blocks of the Penn Alexander Catchment School, CVS, Green Line, Honest Tom’s, Local 44 and the Bottle Shop, Pop Shop, supermarket, and just several blocks to Clark Park, awesome Farmers’ Market, and so many coffee shops, restaurants, and shopping. Close to HUP, CHOP, Penn, Drexel, University of the Sciences. 12 minutes to Rittenhouse Square by car or bike and plenty of convenient SEPTA options. Tremendous opportunity in the Penn Alexander Catchment.
