This house isn't a brightly painted, perfectly preserved Victorian like some of the other homes on the market in West Philly. It is, however, very large, and asking about $100K less than homes of a similar size in the area.
It's not perfect, and it is apparently being sold "as-is", which is never a good sign, but the listing photos don't show any major issues, and the listing explains that the hot water heater and heater are fairly new. Though this house isn't chock full of character like some of the other victorians in the neighborhood, it does include some stained glass windows and a bay window.
Size: Six bedrooms, two and a half baths, 1,917 sq ft
Amenities include: Hardwood floors, a front porch, a back yard, and stained glass windows.
Asking Price: $240,000
