A historic rowhome located in Ringgold Place—now known as the 1900 block of Waverly Street—can be yours for the price of $525,000.
The 2-bedroom, 2-bath home is one of 16 red brick homes that line block. Ringgold Place was built around the Civil War era, likely by the owner at the time and carpenter Walter C. Allison. From 1870 to 1880, it served as housing for storekeepers, dressmakers, laborers, and brick makers, according to the National Register for Historic Places. For a time, architect George Howe, who designed the PSFS Building, ran his office out of 1900 Ringgold Place.
Like the rest of the homes, this 930-square-foot property features marble steps that lead to its entrance. The living room is reminiscent of Philly's Trinity homes, with hardwood floors, a fireplace, and a winding staircase.
Said staircase either leads down to the lower level kitchen or upstairs to the third story that's reserved for the two bedrooms, which each have their own full bathrooms.
Again, this historic Rittenhouse Square home is on the market for $525,000.
