A rare opportunity to live on a gorgeous tree-lined block in Garden Court at the intersection of 47th St. & Osage-Larchwood Aves., one of the most popular West Philly/ University City locations. This 2548 s.f., 3-story, 5-6 bedroom, 2 bath twin home c.1922 has retained all of its great original details. A handsome front sun porch is all French windows and doors, and a spacious living room has a working gas fireplace, leaded glass windows, and a gracious staircase. The original open design includes a full dining room followed by a breakfast room-kitchen combo, laundry area and pantry. Out back, a big deck with built-in seating overlooks the rear garden areas and access to the garage and alley. Upstairs, the second & third floors each contain 3 rooms and a bath, offering endless possibilities for bedroom, home office and sitting room use. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984, the Garden Court neighborhood was described as "the most intact 1920s urban development of architectural note within the city of Philadelphia." Visionary builder Clarence Siegel designed almost the entire community, comprised of single, twin and rowhouse blocks plus luxury apartment buildings. Automobiles had just begun to be a consideration, so Siegel homes include garages accessed via rear alleys. Now approaching its 100th birthday, this gracious community is extremely popular for its convenient location, tree-shaded streets, and easier parking. It's just a few blocks from Baltimore Avenue's unique small restaurants and businesses, Clark Park, Cedar Park, and the #34 trolley route which will take you to center city Philadelphia in 15 minutes, stopping along the way at the UPenn and Drexel campuses and the 30th St. transportation hub.
