Located in University City and a short walk to Drexel and the University of Pennsylvania, this turn key home is ideally situated just blocks from the 14 acre, $6B ~Schuylkill Yards~ mega project which is under construction now and will transform the surrounding area. This home is ideal for an investor or first time home buyer and has been well maintained by the current owner. Enter into the main floor and notice the extremely spacious and open living room, dining room layout, complemented with engineered wood floors throughout. Notice the original details including a charming ornamental fireplace, millwork and large, south facing windows that soak in an abundance of natural light year round. The home was updated in 2012 and was recently refreshed with new paint and new carpet throughout the 2nd floor. Follow the first floor back past the dining area to the large kitchen complete with washer/dryer and patio access. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms with the master at the front of the home, again facing south with an abundance of light. Conveniently, there are 2 baths on the 2nd floor; a full and a half bath. The other two bedrooms are larger than normal for this layout of home. Ductwork is already installed throughout the home so adding Central Air would be simple. Although this home is turn key, there are opportunities for adding improvements and value, including the enormous basement which is tall enough to turn into usable space. This home is conveniently located near the Lancaster Avenue commercial corridor with easy access to the trolley, bus, and subway to Center City. It is also walking distance to the Philadelphia zoo, Fairmount Park and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
