Contemporary light & space meet c.1915 Craftsman workmanship in this 2880 s.f., 3+BR, 2 bath University City townhouse in the catchment area for the high-achieving K-8 Penn Alexander public school.* Leaded glass, natural oak woodwork, hardwood floors and a beautiful original staircase are attention-getters, and so are the exposed brick walls, ceiling beams, and surprising nooks & crannies. And theres also a very long back yard - the lot is over 135 deep. The first floor has a wide-open living room/dining room and a new kitchen. There are three bedrooms and a bath on the second floor; and an open third floor (with a bath), plus loft space above in what was once an attic. The "Little Osage" Spruce Hill location is ground zero for Spruce Hills young residents Halloween parade! Clark Park is the nearby place to play; and shops, restaurants and a weekly farmers market are around the corner at Baltimore Ave. New owners will find a few projects awaiting their imagination (especially the rear porch), but they will also be impressed with the high-quality work that the sellers have done. *Catchment area residency does not guarantee admission to the school. Green Remarks: No need to have a car! The trolley on Baltimore Ave. is just 1 block away, a 15-minute ride to Center City, stopping at UPenn, Drexel, the 30th St. Station transportation hub along the way.
