Looking for an affordable starter home with original details? Good luck finding one! Its more common to find flipped houses with all of the first floor walls missing, metal staircase handrails where there once was wood, and flip kitchens that have bells & whistles of questionable value, plus finishes you wouldnt have chosen. And of course, you pay extra for all of that! Well, heres a 1350 s.f., 2-story, 3+BR starter home with lots of its 1920s details intact. Approaching its 100-year anniversary in 2021, the house has retained its leaded glass front windows, its decorative living room fireplace (still featuring old-fashioned gas "logs"), its 1920s-sleek original staircase and lots of other woodwork. It even still has its granny front garden, full of yellow irises and heritage red roses! A new owner will likely want to make some upgrades sooner or later, but for now, its simple 2011-2016 kitchen and recent baths work just fine, and the seller also completed other "behind-the-scenes" mechanical improvements. Green Remarks: No need to have a car! The Market-Frankford subway stop is two blocks away for a quick ride to Center City, stopping at UPenn, Drexel, and the 30th St. Station transportation hub along the way. Or, hop on the bus, with routes on Chestnut & Walnut Streets.
