Tucked away on a quiet street in Fitler Square, just one block from the Schuylkill River Park and the One Riverside condos, is this Queen Anne-style brownstone that has hit the market for $1.6 million.

Clocking in at 2,793 square feet, the home is listed on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places and dates back to the 1890s. It has some serious curb appeal on Spruce Street, with its brick, brownstone, and limestone facade. Beneath some intricate exterior moldings is a Queen Anne, wrought-iron fence that hides a Mercer-tiled foyer and set of double doors.

Inside the 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home are plenty more original architectural details, including carved oak railing posts on the staircase, hardwood floors, and Tiffany stained glass windows.

All of the rooms appear to be pretty spacious, and the listing notes that many of them let in light from two directions. And by the looks of it, the new owner will have no shortage of storage or built-ins to stack some books. There’s outdoor space and parking out back, too, off of the spacious, but somewhat dated kitchen.

Along with the $1,649,000 price tag comes some hefty property taxes, totaling $13,417 per year.
