A formerly wooded stretch of Manayunk Avenue is slowly transforming into a row of new homes. In the past, this side of the 4000 block of Manayunk Avenue looked like this:
If you pass by today though, you'll see a very different scene.
News of this project first came out at the end of 2012, according to the Roxborough-Manayunk Patch. The twelve-home project has been built in two phases, with the first five homes finishing in 2014. Those homes sold in the mid-$400K range. Despite a fire about half a year ago, the second phase has been slowly going up, and a few are currently listed at prices a little below and a little above $600K.
Though it may appear to be the case at a quick glance, these are not two-story homes. Like other projects in Manayunk, these homes sit on a steep hill and have additional stories "below grade." Each home has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, parking, and over 3,000 sqft of living space. And the views ain't bad, either.
It's hard to believe that this property sat undeveloped for so many years, especially when you consider that this project is being done by-right. We wonder, are there similar properties still to be found in this neighborhood?
