Property Description

Not for the faint of heart, this c.1899, 4-story, 4700+ s.f., University City twin with 3-unit zoning, fire escape, & current license needs complete renovation - but what an incredible property it is! It's situated on a great block, next door to the U.C. Arts League & across the street from the popular Penn Alexander K-8 public grade school. A rear alley leads to parking in its large back yard. And the apartments are enormous! The current owner lived many years on the 1st floor, which had previously been her father's medical practice, so there are too many small rooms now; the MLS' required room count here is confusing. The 2nd floor once contained 2 separate living areas, which need to be combined into 1, requiring reconfiguration. The
rear room opens onto a wonderful roof deck. The 3rd & 4th floors are a very large bi-level apt with 2 bathrooms. This apt was rented till last month, but, like the others, it will need a new kitchen & baths. Furnace, hot water heater & fire alarm system are recent
