Bright and spacious 3 bedroom home on lovely tree-lined University City block. 2-car parking (GARAGE and driveway). This home has had the same owner for 40 years and offers substantial original character. Original hardwood floors, moldings, brick fireplace, banister. Excellent bones and just waiting to be updated. South-facing front garden. The (1st Floor) has a south-facing, 4 season sun room, large living room that opens to the dining room with chair rail. Big kitchen with original cabinet piece and ample room to renovate (perhaps open up the 1st floor by removing wall between kitchen and dining). Coat closet. (Maybe add a half bath). The (2nd Floor) offers original hardwood floors under the carpet (they have been covered for decades. Not sure of condition). 3 large bedrooms. The front room has French doors out to the sunroom roof. Ideal for a deck. The bath has original subway tile and a skylight. Big (basement) with nice ceiling height. This home has a superb layout and excellent space and character. Beautiful block and a most-convenient location. The house is located within the Lea School Catchment and the University of Pennsylvania forgivable loan program. It is around the corner from Barkan Park, the University City Swim Club, and a short walk to Mariposa food co-op, Dock Street Brewery, and a host of restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping. Homes in immediate neighborhood selling for significantly more. Great bones. Great opportunity. Note–An Estate Sale, this home is livable but needs updating throughout. Likely has knob & tube wiring.
