Here now, From Curbed Marketplace, highlighting an intriguing pick from that spot at the top of the page that rotates listings and makes real estate junkies refresh and refresh and refresh the page until the trackpad is dotted with blood.
This 1835 charmer at Front and Federal is, as its listing claims, "mansion-style." Not a McMansion, that is, but a capacious six-bedroom home with a four-car garage with period details like seven original fireplaces. The house's flooring may need some work, depending on how you feel about the carpeting, and there are some details you may feel are too period, if you know what we mean. The street is conveniently located near the Mummers Museum, which do we stress as a significant detail (and a period detail, come to think of it) because come October, the Mummers start practicing beneath nearby I-95, and the neighborhood is gripped by a fever of sewing and sashaying.
And then, of course, on New Year's Day, post-parade, the Mummers take over "Two Street" (do any Mummers really call it that?), which is mere yards away from this house. Just for one day, mind you, but the drunken insanity will have even this stoop wilting beneath sequins.
Other than that, all's quiet.
Size: 6 beds, 3 baths, 3,072 square feet
Parking: 4-car garage
Outdoor space: Backyard
Extras: The house was once owned by a Philadelphia mayor. That will either impress you or make you tired.
