This Georgian home is one of Philadelphias finest examples of an accurate restoration of an 18th century historic facade. Built by Master Carpenter Joseph Wetherill (1740-1820; who spearheaded the funding to build Head House Square), this corner home is bursting with southern and eastern light and offers a lovely private south-facing patio. The interior offers 3 very large bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a finished Lower Level, an elevator, a big living room, and a bright and beautiful eat-in kitchen with granite breakfast bar and countertops, stainless appliances, big south-facing windows, an open dining room, and a wall of glass overlooking the charmingly eclectic rear patio. Hardwood floors, high-ceilings, and wood-burning fireplace. In addition to the listed square footage, the home also has a large unfinished 4th floor attic that could be converted to finished space. Big rooms throughout. Excellent storage. Superb light and views of the Old Pine Historic Colonial Churchyard (views and light that are fully protected). Spectacular location in the McCall School Catchment (and just one block from St. Peters). Tree-lined, brick-paved historic block with a 99 WalkScore! Two blocks from the Headhouse Farmers Market, so many great restaurants, and close to all that Society Hill, Old City, Penns Landing, Queen Village, Wash West, and all of Center City has to offer. Seller offering 1-year paid PARKING at the secure garage at 215 Lombard (with secure exit onto Stampers, just a pleasant 2 block walk).
