Rarely offered, unique opportunity on 16th St. just off Rittenhouse Square. This property presents two options. With CMX-3 zoning on a 20x120 lot, this is ripe for redevelopment/re-purpose -- a condo conversion, apartments, a mixed-use building, etc. -- there's an array of possibilities. For the divergent thinking, opportunity seeking owner occupant this is your chance to completely customize and rejuvenate a home once owned by the "jogging jeweler." This home has been in the Emmons' family for 40+ years. Wesley W. Emmons, Jr. was a talented jeweler and long-distance runner, with a client list that included Eleanor Roosevelt, Buddy Rich, and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A property with so much history, with this location, and with this zoning, provides seldomly seen circumstances for a truly inspiring project. Walk out basement to the over-sized large back yard /garden.
