Reason #1,578,939 that we love Philly: You can buy a beautiful home with six bedrooms within the city limits for less than $400,000. This home in East Falls is proof of that. The Arts & Craft style, stucco and brick property just hit the market for a reasonable $372,000. That'll nab you those six bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a fireplace, a one-car garage, and plenty of lovely charming details throughout.
The home is loaded with light, especially in the dining room and living room, thanks to the original oversized windows and bay windows. The master bedroom on the second level features sun-lit sitting room enclosed by French doors. In addition to the bedrooms, the third floor is an open space that could be converted into a loft or au pair suite.
The backyard also features a covered deck patio, over which wisteria blooms in the warmer months, real estate Loretta Witt tells us.
The current owners, who have lived in the home for years, have made various upgrades to the semi-detached house. There's a new heater, and no knob-and-tube wiring or environmental issues in the 105-year-old house.
Again the asking price is $372,000.
