Philadelphia Homes for Sale, Academy Gardens Real Estate Listings, 3141 Fordham Road, MLS #6815902 Luxury Homes, Condos, Estates for Sale

3141 Fordham Road

Philadelphia, PA 19114

If you are looking for a Phila address in one of the very "suburban-feeling" city neighborhoods, Academy Gardens might be right for you. Streets are wide, pavements for taking walks, good street lighting, and very large yards. This home is a corner property with an expansive and inviting enclosed yard that includes a great deal of open space for recreational enjoyment. It is one of the few homes in the vicinity with a private driveway that leads to a one-car garage. The current owner has replaced the house roof, and the ground-floor master bathroom. The home is Cape Cod in style - a problem solver for someone wanting a ground-floor bedroom and bath (with a second, ground-floor room available as a bedroom, playroom or office). The second floor is an open and spacious living space, great for merged families, visitors, in-law suite, or for those who simply relish a bit of privacy from the ground floor activities. Of course, all of the standard uses apply to the second floor bedrooms, as well. Transportation access is excellent (I-95, Roosevelt Blvd, Welsh Rd) with rail stations nearby. Public schools in the area are among the best in the Phila System. Please come and see this home in real time.
