When you think quintessential South Philadelphia, this is what comes to mind: lovely tree-lined streets, the smell of sweet pastry in the air and neighbors on stoops chatting away. Nestled in the heart of the neighborhood under a canopy of towering trees sits Girard Estate, an enclave established by the deed of Stephen Girard, a French merchant who landed in Philadelphia during the Revolutionary War. Architect James H. Windrim, along with son John, built these unique semi-detached homes from 1906-16 in many styles, including bungalow, prairie, mission, Jacobean revival and Colonial revival. Girard Estate stands today as the architectural jewel of South Philadelphia and Lambert Street is one of Girard Estate's most beautiful blocks. From your first step inside, you'll feel the warmth of home and love of the generations who lived here before. You are welcomed into a sunny enclosed porch followed by a spacious living room, formal dining room, a large kitchen outfitted with custom cherry cabinets, powder room and enclosed porch. Protected original hardwood floors are underneath the wall-to-wall carpeting throughout. The yard has terrific garden and landscape potential and is perfect for grilling and dining al fresco.
