431 Roxborough Ave



Welcome to your dream home! One of the things you'll enjoy most about your porch front twin in the city is it feels like a quiet cottage in the country. Your private and secluded back yard will host many festive family gatherings and romantic sequestered dinners. Your 1.5 car garage will house all sorts of uses, possibly a wood shop, or artist studio, or craft corner, or shelter for motorcycles and scooters. Your daily commute directly into Center City starts just steps away at your choice of bus stops or after a quick walk to the Manayunk train station. Your Kindle will thank you. Finally, water ice, the supermarket, a coffee shop, Philly's best BBQ and Cheesesteaks, a dog park and Fairmont Park's Wissahickon Gorge are all just a stone's throw from your front door. The steps at the end of the street lead to Manayunk's Main Street with its festivals, shopping, dining, biking trails and easy access to the highway. Additional niceties include well preserved original details, a spacious floor plan with high ceilings, a clever open kitchen, a bright and charming sunroom, sparkling spa-like new bathrooms with towel warmers and soaking tub, original hardwood floors in excellent condition, fresh paint, a new roof, new upgrades to the plumbing and plenty of off street parking. You can have a generous amount more than you bargained for in this cheerful and pretty, yet affordable porch-front house that you'll love making your home.  Agent
