Grand Broad Street Mansion with magnificent character. Street to street, between Broad and Watts. One of the largest homes in the most desirable East Passyunk Crossing neighborhood, 1831 S. Broad has a 99 Walkscore and is just off the heart of Passyunk Avenue and the best restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping in the city. This 6 bedroom, plus family room, 2 bath home has original hardwood floors with inlaid detail on all three floors; original wood molding, trim, and doors; 10 ceilings on the 1st floor, 9.5 on the 2nd, and 9 on the 3rd. At 18 feet wide and with great depth, the special volume and light is outstanding. Spectacular bones and character, waiting for your finishes. The finished lower level needs to be refinished yet offers even more great space. Character and detail include working transoms at every room entrance (great light and they open and close for air). The 4 foot by 5 foot, six-over-six paned windows are amazing. And of course, the striking fa~ade. Once you first enter the vestibule with its huge original doors, wood detailed wainscoting, and gorgeous leaded glass and original tiles, you will understand this opportunity. The rear patio also has parking potential (and build a deck above a car port!). Original fireplaces (probably not lined). So many possibilities to create the perfect master suite and really an ideal layout for everyday living and entertaining family and friends. A significant home in one of Phillys best neighborhoods. Two block walk to the Avenue!
