Property Description

A well-built, well-loved 19th Century twin, within walking distance to all the favorite spots in central Roxborough: the Wissahickon Trails, Starbucks, Gorgas Park, Main Street Manayunk. The commuter will also be pleased with this home's location, as it is situated with easy access to I-76 and many of the main SEPTA routes. Even better, a very affordable parking agreement with the community center across the street offers the luxury of hassle-free parking. While the location is excellent, it's the fine details that make this home so special. A large and inviting front porch greets you as you enter an oversized living room that flows nicely into bay-windowed dining room with built-in china closet. A front staircase and back staircase make
your household traffic more convenient. Stainless steel appliances and a checkerboard floor welcome you into a charming kitchen and back laundry area, complete with half-bath. The fenced-in backyard is larger than the typical Roxborough yard, with a new shed to store your gardening supplies. The second floor offers a large master bedroom, two additional bedrooms and a full bath. The third floor has two bedrooms and is in need of some light cosmetic updates but is otherwise solid and cozy. This home has not had many owners, and all replacements and repairs were done with care and quality in mind. Dry, unfinished basement with ample storage, recently refinished, original, hardwood floors, lots of natural light, built-in closets, original doors, glass doorknobs, newer windows and fantastic neighbors, it is worth your time to check out 474 Martin.
