Folks tend to shake their heads whenever homes in West Philly hit the market for more than $500,000, but with the news that an entirely new neighborhood is in the making here, we can only assume that prices will continue to increase. So honestly, with the amount of space and beautiful detailing that this Powelton Village home offers, it should be considered a steal with its asking price just under $500K.
The 5-bedroom, 3-bath stone home isn't hard to miss, standing at the corner of Hamilton and 35th streets. At 2,768 square feet, it features lovely architectural details throughout, including the arched double doors that open to a spacious living area with bay windows, a fireplace, beautiful hardwood floors, and French molding.
There's also plenty of outdoor space, including a back patio and a spacious upper cedar deck that's accessed from a bedroom on the third floor. Not to mention the home is just blocks from Drexel Park, and a short walk across the Schuylkill to the trails and Philadelphia Museum of Art.
As for those still wincing at the price tag, according to property records this home on 3501 Hamilton Street is actually zoned for mixed-use residential, though it's currently used a single family home. Perhaps one of those five bedrooms is a rental in the making.
The asking price of this home is $494,900.
