Property Description

In the catchment area for the popular Penn Alexander public grade school*, University Mews is a cluster of 47 sun-filled, multilevel contemporary townhouses with simple, open design lines. #33 is a three bedroom, 1.5 bath, 1224 sq. ft. model entered through an entry hall next to its garage, directly from 45th Street. Half a flight of stairs up, there's a large living room with a 2-story ceiling; a wood-burning fireplace, and sliding glass doors leading to the fenced brick patio/ garden. Half a floor down, there's a half bath, mechanicals closet, laundry room and workshop. (Some homeowners have finished this lower level workshop for use as a den, studio or play space.) Take another half flight of stairs up from the living room to the
spacious, sunny dining room, open to the renovated kitchen - which is also open to overlook the living room. The next floor up contains a renovated bath and 3 bedrooms. A previous owner removed a wall of the main bedroom so that it now overlooks the stairs; new owners may want to put a wall back in place. University Mews won design awards back when it was built back in 1963 to occupy a large lot at the corner of 45th & Spruce Sts. With a shared central courtyard for play space and picnic gatherings, and a private drive providing access to interior houses, it resembles a condominium community, but it is not; all are fee-simple townhouses with easements to permit Mews owners to cross parts of the properties belonging to other Mews owners. There is no maintenance fee; however, owners are asked to pay a small voluntary $300 fee per year. The location is close to public transportation, Clark Park, restaurants, coffee shops & gourmet groceries, including Farmacy, Local 44, and Milk & Honey Market. *Catchment area location is not a guarantee of admittance to PAS, but it has just been announced that all catchment-area students who applied for kindergarten for Sept. 2015 have been accepted/all were accepted in 2014, also, after the number of kindergarten classes was increased.
