Historic Spring Garden Carriage House Asks $349K

The cozy home surprises on the inside

Brandywine Street in Spring Garden may not look like anything special. There are garages to your left and right, some carriage houses, a parking lot here, and an apartment building there. But many of the properties are actually steeped in history, from the Wanamaker carriage house at 1741 Brandywine Street, to this gorgeous 1-bedroom, 1-bath carriage house that just hit the market for $349,000.

The renovated carriage house at 1731 Brandywine Street was added to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places in 2000. Built around 1859, the two-story Roman stucco building went through a complete transformation recently.

The upstairs serves as the main living space. There are custom built-ins in the bedroom, hardwood floors throughout, and the kitchen has updated appliances, a farmhouse sink, and stainless steel counters.

Downstairs, the garage is currently raw space that could potentially be used as an office, or perhaps even more bedrooms and living space. There's also an enclosed back patio.

The asking price of this lovely carriage house is $349,000.
