South Philly 'Diamond in the Rough' Offers Spectacular Fireplaces and Holes in the Ceiling

New, 15 comments


Here's a house that's part of the way though its transformation, but isn't quite ready for human habitation yet: there are breathtaking ornate fireplaces, a great skyline view, and holes in the ceiling.

The current owner has clearly started to gut the house, and while that might save the next owners a little bit of time and money, one wonders what was gutted. In a house like this, there may have been a rotting wardrobe or an ornate staircase that needed lots of restoration.

Buy this house before it loses its character!
