    Description

    Incredible and unusual live/work space in one of the largest historic single homes still remaining in Old City. Spanning over 18 feet wide at the street, stretching 4 stories plus basement, and sitting on a rare deep lot that allows for a side garden and sunny deck, this comfortable 3500+sf colonial home offers an ideal place to work and play, and enough space to get away. The first floor & basement were configured to run various businesses over the years, and were more recently used as home office/study spaces, half bath, and garden room/laundry/mudroom. The 2nd thru 4th floors live large and offer open living space rarely seen in historic Old City homes. This sprawling space functions as a large open plan apartment/owner's quarters. A huge, south facing open living and dining room boasts plenty of space for entertaining or unwinding, with dual fireplaces and a sunny deck overlooking the rear garden. Sunny, well sized kitchen with stainless appliances and a breakfast room/office/3rd bedroom with cathedral ceilings completes the 2nd floor. Lovely 3rd floor main bedroom features fireplace and closets with backlit glass doors, and en suite bath with double vanity, linen closet, and decorative fireplace. Additional BR/bath on the gabled 4th fl complete the home. The basement runs full footprint with high ceilings, plenty of storage, workshop space, and access to the street level via bilco style doors in front. Endless potential for creative live/work space, commercial first floor, or restoration to a large single family residence. Live here, work here, or adapt and design something exciting to suit your exact needs, as the size, scale, and space create value and opportunities. Excellent value for square footage in Old City/Center City with great foot traffic in a dynamic location. Steps from Old City shops, galleries, and cafes. Stellar access to all public transit, highways & airport for travel. Private rental parking available nearby.
