This is the home you will fall in love with! Located in the most desirable school district in the city, the Penn Alexander Catchment Zone, makes this charming and warm three-story Victorian home an ideal place to raise your family. Not only is this home a passport to one of the top Penn-assisted schools in the city, it is also in the heart of the tree-lined, thriving and friendly neighborhood of Squirrel Hill in University City. A piece of Philadelphia history, this Queen Anne Victorian semi-detached home retains most of its original features, including beautiful wood floors, tiles, carved arch, mantelpieces, and a stunning array of original leaded and stained glass windows. It is conveniently located between two Septa trolley stops for easy access to Center City, as well as a few steps away from several bus lines, a ten minute walk from University of Pennsylvania Campus and just a couple of blocks away from historic Clark Park. If you prefer to drive, the house is one of the few in the area with an attached one car garage. Even though its history is well-preserved, the house has updated slate and flat roofs, security alarm, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, electrical circuit breakers, hot water heater, furnace and major appliances. The kitchen features a Jennair professional-quality stove, butcher block counters, and a granite-topped center island with sink and garbage disposal. Space is not an issue in this 5 bedroom home; ample storage spaces will satisfy all your house-keeping needs. Perfect for entertaining, for a growing family, and as a legacy home, this is the house you have been looking for.~ Philadelphia Magazine Webpage Article: https://www.phillymag.com/property/2019/09/11/house-for-sale-squirrel-hill-renovated-victorian/ ~Philadelphia~Inquirer Article:~~http://www.inquirer.com/real-estate/housing/victorian-for-sale-west-philadelphia-university-pennsylvania-20190911.html~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
