Property Description

Beaming with Victorian charm and old world detail is this gorgeous corner lot property in Ridley Park. Currently situated as a 2-unit property with great rental income potential, but could easily be converted back to a large single-family. The original architectural details have been wonderfully preserved - hardwood floors and doors, an expansive staircase, stained glass windows and chandeliers, a gabled roof, and gingerbread porch - yet, updates have been made to the kitchens and baths, fresh paint has been added, and two new water heaters and thermostat systems installed. The first unit is located on the main floor, with a bedroom, den, and bath, while the second unit spans two stories and contains three bedrooms, a den, and bath. Throughout, you’ll find large windows letting in an abundance of natural light, formal living and dining rooms for entertaining guests, eat-in kitchens, 14’ ceilings, and cozy flex spaces, including one with a stunning wood burning fireplace. There’s plenty of storage space in the attic and basement, and the exterior, made up of expansive lawns and mature trees, offers ample room to garden, play, and lounge! Located near shopping, dining, and outdoor recreation, with easy access to hwy 13, train transportation, PHL Airport, and Philadelphia. Buyer should verify all information.
