Come see the most unique home on the most desirable street in Roxborough!
This property has incredible landscaping which includes vegetable gardens, so the exterior space enables the homeowner to grow their own food. The city yard is quite unusual since you are blessed with over a quarter acre of land.
Although the property is currently zoned residential, its highest and best use is as a beautiful single-family home and an incredible second building with many potential uses.
Walk onto the front porch area of the main home and into a lovely living room with a wood burning fireplace. There is a formal dining room adjoining for those family gatherings. Continue through to a fully functional kitchen on which you can put your personal touch and upgrades. There is a full bath on this floor. Upstairs are three sizable bedrooms plus a hall bath. The basement which is finished could be updated to provide extra space for the family, office space, game room or storage. Off the rear of the home is a lovely deck which is shaded by trees…a place to experience true natural enjoyment. Past the deck is a very high yielding vegetable garden which has been lovingly maintained.
The rear building is a two story 2,400 square foot structure which is adaptable to the buyer’s creative ideas and is currently being utilized as an office and garage. There is plenty of room in the garage for the person who has a collection of cars. There are fully functional utilities to the additional building and presently a powder room with roughed in plumbing for a full bathroom. This has great potential for the buyer as a home office with a large amount of space on the second floor. A long spacious driveway offers additional off-street parking. It could be the perfect artist’s studio with inspiration from the surrounding tranquility of this quiet neighborhood as well as plenty of windows to provide that direct light which is so important for the creation of that artistic masterpiece. The high ceiling of this potential studio enables the artist to create large works of art with space to spare. Or, perhaps a writer would consider this a place where ingenuity swells. A hobbyist’s dream come true. Or a home gym?
This block is close to all public transportation, entrances to Fairmount Parks bike and hiking trails, and plenty of local Manayunk and Roxborough shopping. Enjoy a summer evening at a concert in Gorgas Park which is just a block away from the property.
The property is easy to show so make an appointment as soon as possible…and imagine the possibilities!
