Germantown doesn’t always get the recognition it deserves. But the historic district is home to plenty of momentous occasions in U.S. history, including the Battle of Germantown during the American Revolutionary War. Now, one of its many beautiful homes dating back to the late 1800s has hit the market with an asking price of $549,900.
That may seem like a big price tag for the Northwest Philly neighborhood, but consider the specs: Five bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and 5,832 square feet of space. Not to mention there’s a two-story carriage house in the backyard with its own bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom.
The home itself was designed by a local architect by the name of Mantle Fielding. All of the original details remain, including the beautiful grand staircase, the built-ins in the dining room, oval windows, and hardwood floors.
And if location is an issue, the home is sandwiched between two SEPTA train stations: Tulpehocken and Germantown stations.
