The architecture and homes of East Oak Lane, one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, never cease to amaze with their oversized footprints and small price tags (Remember this pretty in pink number?). This home at 6507 N. 7th Street is no different, hitting the market for $259,900.
The single-family home is clad in Wissahickon schist stone and features multiple outdoor terraces, including a large front porch. It clocks in at 2,000 square feet and features five bedrooms and one and a half baths, coming out to $130 per square foot.
It’s packed with both old-world and vintage charm throughout. There are original oak floors with inlays that run from the living room to the dining room. Meanwhile, the kitchen and the bathrooms take on a more vintage style.
Given its size, it’s a lot of house to heat in the winter. But the original radiators still work and are equipped with a new Bosch heating system, and the windows have been replaced.
The home also sits on less than an acre of land, but there’s a big backyard and a private driveway with a one-car garage.
Want to walk the home in person? There’s an open house on Sunday, December 3 from 1 to 3 p.m.
