This is a great porch front home, facing Gorgas Park, just waiting for new owners to enjoy occupying it. Carpe diem. This is an incredible opportunity for an owner occupant looking to earn sweat equity by buying low and selling high. Similar sized rehabbed homes in the area are selling in excess of $200K. There are a TON of new construction properties selling in the area for an average of $400K plus new developments going in, and new businesses in the area. This is a very attractive location for its proximity to trendy Main St. Manayunk, vibrant Ridge Avenue, parks (both dog and people), recreation (a field and running track), public transportation and ease of commute to center city. In addition, so many new trendy businesses are accessible within a few short blocks. There are great jobs coming into the neighborhood and a generally great vibe community-wide. This is your chance to live in an adorable spacious home with very cool details and all the hard stuff already done for you. The heater and hot water tank are relatively new, the roof is only a couple years old, and electrical was updated throughout in 2004. In addition to the technical stuff, find a lovely open floor plan with newer floating floors, a fun galley kitchen with a retro look but an open feel. The kitchen has an enormous bay window looking out onto the covered porch and approximately 40' deep (maybe more) yard. The basement has high ceilings, lots of storage and laundry facilities. Upstairs find 3 good sized bedrooms with original hardwood floors, lots of closets, and an interesting bathroom with purposefully vintage sink and skylight. This property was recently rented for $1200/mo.
