In Rittenhouse Square, one either expects a grand, stately home with historic details or a ritzy luxury condo right on the park, all with at least $1 million-plus price tags. But here’s a rowhouse that’s sitting pretty just a few blocks from the square that shows plenty of potential for a smaller price tag.
This 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home clocks in at a reasonable 1,512 square feet and comes with a ivy-strewn back patio. The parquet floors in the living area have been refinished and the second floor features Juliet balconies. And while the listing describes the staircase as Trinity-style, this property is more like your average Philly rowhome.
The kitchen appliances are a little dated, and unfortunately the marble fireplace is non-working. But there’s no doubt that the home offers a lot of options, and with a little updating could be great. The asking price is $625,000.
There's an open house this Sunday, October 2 from 6 to 7 p.m.
