A significant home in the Penn Alexander Catchment. Very large, nice character, and one of the largest rear yards in University City. The serene rear yard is 100' with additional green space beyond it. The entire lot is 196', and includes an established front garden as well, leading up to the lovely front porch. The rear yard also has a deck and established garden (and cherry and peach trees). On a great block, this home has the bones to be a premier Spruce Hill residence. When creating your home, here is what you will have to work with -- 10' ceilings on the 1st floor and 9'+ on the 2nd and 3rd. Original pine floors through some of the home. Exposed brick. Leaded glass, original character and a lot of cute and quirky details you would expect to find in West Philadelphia. 5 large light filled bedrooms plus a family room. 2.5 baths. Great windows and light throughout. The kitchen (overlooking the deck and huge yard) is big and bright with lots of windows and offers a superb palette for the renovation. The dining area offers a gas fireplace that provides a warm glow to the exposed brick as well as really comfortable heat. The 2nd floor has 2 bedrooms, a full bath, and a grand family room overlooking the rear yard. The 3rd floor has a large, bright front bedroom, perhaps to be combined with the adjacent bedroom to create an awesome main bedroom suite. Big rear bedroom overlooking the rear yard. Skylight. Excellent closet and storage space throughout. Big, dry basement. This is an amazing home on a great block in the Penn Alexander Catchment. Within blocks of Clark Park and its phenomenal Farmers Market, Local 44, Bottle Shop, Green Line, ReAnimator Coffee and Knockbox Cafe, TacoTacoMexican (formerly Honest Tom's), Tampopo, Pop Shop, Renata's, Clarkville, Baltimore Avenue Restaurant Row, CVS, movie theater, and much more. Two blocks to the Penn Alexander School. Walk to HUP, Penn, CHOP, Penn Vet, Drexel, University of the Sciences, Presby, Science Center. 11 minutes to Center City by car and plenty of convenient SEPTA options. With a 95 WalkScore and 97 BikeScore. NOTES: The home has a new high-efficiency furnace that could be converted to AC use as well. The wooden swing set in the rear yard can be included or removed at buyer's option. New front porch work (new composite decking and roof.) Low maintenance, brand new railings, brand new porch roof with 12-year guarantee. (The top roof is older). Significant rewiring has been done throughout. The Seller just installed 70' of shadowbox privacy fencing in the rear yard, which provides privacy from the next-door neighbor. This home is a gem in University City!!
