Description

Rare opportunity: this 3036 s.f., 3-story twin in the Cedar Park section of University City, West Philly, is available for your complete rehab. It's on a wide lot at the corner of 46th St. & Springfield Ave., in the catchment area for the popular Penn Alexander K-8 public grade school.* So many of its original 1892 Victorian details remain: oak flooring with decorative borders, period woodwork and pocket doors, a dining room built-in corner cabinet, 3 decorative fireplaces with ornate mantles, the handsome original staircase for all three floors, impressively large mirrors (one gilded), leaded glass - and even a newel post statue. A third floor balcony overlooks Springfield Ave. and there's a large back yard. The location is excellent - just a block from Baltimore Ave., University City's "main street," with eclectic shops and restaurants serving many different cuisines. Clark Park is 2 blocks away, and a short walk takes you to USciences and/or UPenn. The #34 trolley at the Baltimore Ave. corner will whisk you to center city in 15 minutes, with stops along the way at UPenn, Drexel, and the 30th St. transportation hub in case you want to catch a train. Step carefully during your visit! There are some damaged floor areas. The electricity is on, but water and sewer were turned off years ago and won't be turned back on for this as-is, cash, sale. (*Catchment address doesn't guarantee admittance to Penn Alexander.)
