Are you looking for that elusive West Philly starter house with original features? A little-old-lady place that you can move into now, and upgrade when youre ready? You dont want one of those cookie-cutter new kitchens in someone elses taste, that you have to pay for even though its not what youd choose? Then, this is your house! Gorgeous, gleaming, recently refinished floors - no wall to wall carpets here! A brick fireplace, once gas, with old-fashioned wall sconces above it. The original staircase, still with its wooden railings and newel posts. A butlers pantry cabinet in the kitchen. And theres this amazing mirror in the living room with elaborate beveled glass peacock designs. The rooms are spacious, starting with a front porch probably enclosed in the 1930s, and then a big living room, full dining room, and an old-fashioned kitchen with space for a small table. The rear porch, which could use some work, leads out to a fenced rear yard. The basement is unfinished, but tall, with plenty of room. Upstairs, there are 3 good-sized, bright and sunny bedrooms - with bay windows in both front and rear - and an older hall bath. Green Remarks: Theres so much public transportation in West Philly that you dont need a car to live here.
