Ghostly House Pinched Between Two Cemeteries Asks $41K


This rehab near Strawberry Mansion is for the discerning buyer. You know, the types that wants to live next to two of Philadelphia's largest cemeteries. This 3-bed, 1-bath home at 2649 N. Myrtlewood St. is adjacent to Mount Vernon Cemetery and just a sort walk to Laurel Hill Cemetery, the final resting place of one Frank Furness. Although only asking $41K, this home needs some serious TLC, and quite possibly a priest or shaman. The photos are dark and blurry, the ornate built-in cabinet in the bedroom looks haunted and there might just be apparitions in the wood-paneled room (note the dark spots). There's also a large, dark-colored stain in the living that looks highly suspect. · 2649 N. Myrtlewood St. [Redfin]
