Property Description

On one of Philly's most beautiful blocks, lined with mature trees and gorgeous 3-story 19th century porch front twin homes sits 509 S 48th. Just off the corner of Larchwood Avenue in the desirable Garden Court neighborhood (and Lea School Catchment!), this 4 bedroom plus huge west-facing family room, 2.5 bath home is filled with significant original character throughout. Lovely covered porch front and large rear yard. The incredible original character includes high ceilings, crown and baseboard moldings, oak and pine floors, woodwork, doors, chair rail, wood trim, transoms, mantles, and other detail throughout. Home includes an original Estey Pump Organ (conveyed in as-is condition)—a conversation piece to be sure. The home is clean and neat and awaiting your updates and renovation. Current updates include several mini-splits that cool the first and second floors and various recent roof improvements (complete list available upon request). Radiator heat. Incredible all-day light throughout. This twin home with the awesome bones also offers a STELLAR location—it is a short walk to Clark Park and its fabulous Farmers' market, Cedar Park, University City Swim Club, ReAnimator Coffee, Knock Box Café, Mariposa Food Co-op, Bookers, Carbon Copy, Gold Standard, Vietnam Cafe, Vientiane, Loco Pez, Doro Bet, Gojjo, Chloe Bagels, and all of Baltimore Avenue's Restaurant Row, as well as other restaurants, shops & cafes. Close to HUP, CHOP, Penn, Drexel, Penn Vet, and 13 minutes to Center City by car or bike and plenty of convenient SEPTA options (including the #42 and #64 buses and #34 trolley). LEA SCHOOL CATCHMENT. Notes—48th Street is a wide avenue, and the Western light is spectacular. The city and neighborhood have approved a protected bike lane, speed humps, new striping, and other quality of life/traffic improvements along 48th Street while maintaining the plentiful parking along both sides. This work is scheduled to be completed this summer.
