    Spectacular space and character on tree-lined block in the Penn Alexander Catchment. This beautiful Colonial Revival twin (c. 1903) offers 6 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, spacious family room, office, sitting room, dining room, and bright kitchen with sunny breakfast room. High ceilings with original ceiling beams, original hardwood floors throughout, significant original detail including fabulous woodwork and gorgeous leaded glass bays. Lovely rear garden, covered front porch with bench. Big windows. Amazing space. Excellent layout. Original character also includes important fixtures, wood burning fireplace plus a decorative detailed wood and tile mantle, window seat, built-in bench, several bays of leaded glass, pocket doors, and an original wood burning cast-iron stove from the Abram Cox Stove Company of Philadelphia (the most popular stoves at the turn of the century)–a conversation piece to be sure. Wainscoting, original tulip lights in dining room, and so much more. 3 exposures and the side only has a 1 story building next door for extra light. A perfect blend of space and light and character, this University City Twin is an easy walk to Clark Park and its fabulous Farmers’ Market, Milk & Honey, Baltimore Avenue’s Restaurant Row, Penn Alexander Catchment School, Clarkville, Green Line, Coffee Market, Marigold Kitchen, Honest Tom’s, Local 44 and the Bottle Shop, Pop Shop, CVS, Mariposa Co-op 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 (Four years in a row, all Kindergarten registrants offered spots. For 2016-2017 all registrants have spots).
