Description

One of University Citys finest homes"on one of the citys most historic blocks. Situated in the award-winning Penn Alexander School Catchment (only two blocks from school), this Queen Anne twin (c. 1883) offers incredible space; significant original character throughout (high ceilings, hardwood floors, architectural detail, really cool spaces); a huge, private rear patio with a salvaged pergola from India, a large front garden and covered front porch and original wrought iron fencing and decorative arch; and modern amenities (2-zone HVAC plus a mini-split in the finished attic space bonus room, spacious kitchen with quartz countertops/breakfast bar, custom pantry, and stainless steel appliances, all updated wiring, tankless hot water, etc). 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 2 half baths, a breakfast room/speakeasy/children's playroom, very quiet private home office in a full finished attic perfect for working remotely/online, and a finished lower level with family room/gym and significant storage space. This stunning home was designed by George & William Hewitt, who also designed The Bellevue and The Bourse, among other famous Philly buildings. And of course, an awesome location in the Penn Alexander Catchment. Just a block from Clark Park and its superb Farmers' Market and steps from the 34 trolley line, Milkcrate Caf, Knockbox Cafe, Honeysuckle Provisions, Local 44, Bottle Shop, Green Line Cafes, TacoTaco Mexicano, Tampopo, Don Barriga, Pop Shop, Renata's, Clarkville, Doro Bet, Baltimore Avenue Restaurant Row, CVS, and much more. Short walk to HUP, Penn, CHOP, Penn Vet, Drexel, St Joes. 12 minutes to Rittenhouse Square by car or bike and plenty of convenient SEPTA options. NOTE: This entire set of homes on the West side of 42nd between Osage & Baltimore make up a small historic district protected by the Philadelphia Historic Commission. While the entire Spruce Hill neighborhood will likely soon be a full historic district, this block was first!
