Rare CORNER and SOUTH-facing townhouse on a beautiful wide block located in the heart of the neighborhood. The home is a corner/end unit home and most of the windows face south, so the house gets MUCH more sunlight than your typical Philadelphia rowhome, which makes it a very cheery living space. First floor is an open design with living room flowing into dining area, flowing into kitchen, and leading to the back outdoor patio which includes an area for your plants/small urban garden. 2nd floor includes 2 bedrooms (one can be used as an office) as well as a full bathroom. 3rd floor includes 2 additional bedrooms, one of which has a skyline view from the windows. Rooftop is accessible through 3rd floor hallway window, and the home has strong potential for a future private roof deck (the home’s rooftop has full panoramic, unobstructed views of the skyline). Buyer responsible for obtaining city approval/permits for roof deck. Dry basement also has adequate ceiling height for future finishing/adding even more square footage to the home. Located in the desired Bache-Martin school catchment zone. Exterior front facade completely restored to original historic detail a few years ago, brand new main copper water line to street installed in 2019, newer water heater, and furnace recently serviced. The house sits on Corinthian Avenue, one of the most architecturally pleasing/established blocks in the neighborhood, and right in the center of the Museum district. The Philadelphia Museum of Art, Barnes Foundation, Rodin Museum, Eastern State Penitentiary museum/historic site, and others are all within a very short distance, not to mention beautiful Fairmount Park/Boathouse Row/Schuylkill River Trail. Fairmount Ave is just 2 blocks away with many, many restaurants, bars, cafes, and a microbrewery. The house is also 1 block from Eastern State Penitentiary’s grassy lawn/park and soon upcoming “Corinthian Gardens”. Center City is an easy 20 minutes away. A flagship Whole Foods is a few blocks away as well. Excellent walkability to everything with a “Walk Score” of 92 (“Walker’s Paradise”).This home has also been rented for $2000/mo, making this a good purchase for either an owner-occupant or as an investment. House is also generously zoned RM-1 for future potential conversion to a multi-family home. Note: Garage behind house is a separate property/lot and is not part of this property/address.
