Property Description

If your dream is to restore a turn-of-the-last-century property in University City, take a look at this c.1895 Queen Anne Victorian twin, straight out of "This Old House!" You'll find 3300 square feet of original details - light fixtures, windows, natural woodwork, decorative fireplaces, art tiles, hardwood floors, and even a small butler's pantry - on a great 48th St. block. On the first floor, you can watch the neighborhood goings-on from the front porch, scene of many recent neighborhood gatherings. Inside, there's a large living room, formal dining room, and a big, old-fashioned eat-in kitchen - likely a do-over for a new owner with culinary aspirations. There's a convenient 1st floor laundry room, a rear deck, and a fenced yard.
Upstairs, in Victorian times, the 2nd floor front room would have been called a "sitting room;" today most neighbors use this space as a family room. There are also 6 bedrooms and 2 baths on the upper floors - plenty of space for a home office, dressing room, exercise room, or whatever else you'd like. The current owners did extensive rewiring, which is a great start for upgrades, since most home inspectors' #1 gripe these days is older electricity. The 48th & Windsor-Springfield location is a friendly place, with wide, tree-lined streets and front gardens. Nearby, trolley lines to the universities & center city are at both Baltimore & Chester Avenues, only a few blocks in either direction, and the Penn bus stops right at the corner. And everybody is very enthusiastic about Baltimore Ave., the community's "Main Street," with its ever-developing eclectic collection of restaurants, cafes, little shops, and the neighborhood's closest public green space, Cedar Park.
