With its rich history, blend of original features, and modern upgrades, this exquisite historic townhouse offers endless possibilities for both investors and owner-occupiers alike. Within walking distance of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, this property is located close to some of the best things that Philadelphia has to offer ... Museums, Fairmount Park and many fine restaurants! 🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶 This circa 1860 townhouse offers a unique blend of historic charm and modern conveniences, making it a versatile property with many possibilities for potential buyers. Here are some highlights and potential uses: ORIGINAL FEATURES: Hardwood pine floors, crown moldings, fireplace and exposed brick walls and beams add character and charm to the home. The four-story handrail adds to the historic ambiance and architectural appeal. MODERN UPGRADES: Modern kitchens and bathrooms provide convenience and functionality. Multi-zone HVAC ensures comfort throughout the home. Two irrigation systems assure a steady bloom of your favorite plants. The front irrigation system services the window boxes , ground-level planting beds and the hanging planters on the lampost. A similar system in the rear services the planters on the second floor deck. HISTORICAL RESTORATION: The relighting of the original city gaslamp at the front of the house showcases a commitment to preserving historic elements. Approval from the city's historic commission highlights the property's historical significance. ZONING VARIANCE: The RSA5 zoning with variance allows for flexible use of the property as a duplex. The potential to operate the first-floor unit as a monthly Airbnb, or long-term rental provides income-generating opportunities. 🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶 POTENTIAL USES: 🔹Single-Family Dwelling🔹: Easily convert the property back to a single-family dwelling by surrendering the duplex variance. The first floor could be transformed into an entertainment room with additional bedroom, laundry area, and full bath. Alternatively, use the first-floor unit as a mother-in-law suite, catering to elderly parents with its friendly first-floor layout, self-contained amenities, and sole access to the rear yard and garden. 🔹Short-Term Rental🔹: Maintain the duplex variance and continue operating the first-floor unit as a monthly Airbnb. The current owner's success with Airbnb rental (averaging $2750 monthly) suggests strong income potential. 🔹Long-Term Rental🔹: Rent out the first-floor unit on a long-term basis to generate stable rental income. 🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶🔶 Listing Agent is the seller.
