This is an incredible opportunity for residents looking to take advantage of the PENN ALEXANDER CATCHMENT. This is a very large home in need of a few repairs but very inhabitable. The home has spectacular curb appeal, is located on a green tree lined block, and is a perfect location in West Philadelphia, convenient to all the great things that the universities bring to the neighborhood and to the vibrant life style that comes with enjoying the shops and restaurants on Baltimore Ave as well as the benefits of being in close proximity to lively Clark Park and all its festivals and recreation. There is a deed restriction recorded on the deed to this property preventing it from being divided into a legal duplex. Currently the property has 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, one on each floor. One is being used as a den on the 3rd floor. One on the 1st floor could be converted into a formal dining room. There is a spacious kitchen on the first floor and a mudroom off the back. There are plenty of closets throughout. There is a 2nd kitchen for an in-law suite or au pare suite on the 3rd floor. There's a very spacious basement currently set up as a home gym and suitable for storage. There's also an unfinished attic on the 4th floor with a sky light. The home is in need of exterior improvements and roof maintenance. Recent improvements include a new fence around the yard, new boiler in 2007, newer washer and dryer, custom built in shelves, ikea closets, renovated 3rd floor bathroom, newer 3rd floor kitchen with new microwave and new stove. There are 3 tenants on 3 leases with two paying $575, and one paying $595.
