Description

Reaching out to Investors, Rehabbers or the ambitious Owner Occupant that is looking to renovate to meet their own particular style and needs. Might this home be perfect as your next. project? Take a look! Location, Location, Location! This three story twin is located in the Squirrel Hill section of the University City District. It falls within the Penn AlexanderCatchment Area. The Penn Alexander School is the result of a historic partnership between the University of Pennsylvania, the School District of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers. If you are not familiar with the backstory, it's well worth the time to do an internet search. This very investable neighborhood has enjoyed a healthy appreciation in property values. The front facade of the home has considerable architectural charm. A salmon colored brick is laid in the tight bread and butter style. A large front porch, bumped out windows, mansard style roof with gabled windows, ornamental metal,... Some of the neighboring houses hint at the possibilities in restoring some of the original detailing. Currently, each floor has a full bathroom. Original configuration appears to have been 6 bedrooms, 3 on each of the upper floors. The house was modified at some point to create two units. The main staircase, back staircase and a circular staircase were configured to support that use. One bedroom on the third floor has been fitted out as a kitchenette. The City of Philadelphia has informed the owner that the future use should be as a single family dwelling . The home requires significant renovation and replacement of major systems throughout. That said, there are plenty of doors, architectural trim, walls and ceilings that are in sound condition. The home is being sold as-is with the knowledge that the current owner has never lived in the property and is not intimately aware of the condition of the various elements. Investments were made with the aim of stabilizing its condition. All other improvements are being left to the next owner. Utilities are off so please bring flashlights and use caution when touring the property and do so at your own risk. There is a hole in the kitchen floor covered by a log. The basement steps are very steep and lack a handrail. The basement ceiling is 9+ foot high, perhaps lending itself to interesting possibilities.
