135 Elfreths Aly

Philadelphia, PA 19106

A true piece of Philadelphia history. Built in 1771, it is located on the oldest residential street in America. This double wide home is the largest on the street and features an amazing 1400 square foot garden. The open space first floor layout consists of a living room, dining room, kitchen, sun room and wall of windows leading to the magnificent outdoor space. There are 3 oversized bedrooms including the master suite with a sitting room and den. Second and third floors each have a private deck and access to the garden. Finished basement includes a sauna and a full bath. The open floor plan is perfect for a growing family or a professional couple in need of a live/work space. The home can easily be expanded by restoring the partition walls that would increase it to five bedrooms; or for a grown family by using the top two floors as a duplex / in-law apartment with entrances both through the house and privately through the gardens. The floors throughout are rare red heart pine floors. Four fireplaces with hand-carved mantles and Valley Forge marble. There are modern features in the kitchen with new cabinets, granite counter tops and Bosch appliances. This home has been beautifully restored. The private garden / courtyard is a perfect setting for large gatherings or intimate dinners. Must be seen to be appreciated.
