A historic home on a historic street in Queen Village has us swooning over its rustic charm and impressed with its age: The extra-wide rowhome dates back to circa 1747.
Listed for just under $800,000, the 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home is listed on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places and is surprisingly spacious, despite its age. “I love that it was built in 1747, yet it has an open layout and a warm and comfortable feel,” said listing agent Jeffrey Block.
It’s a roomy 2,210 square feet and has been updated over the years, but it still features plenty of original and historic details. Its historic brick facade is impressive already, but the home’s extra-wide plank hardwood floors, exposed beams, and count ‘em, five fireplaces are noteworthy, too (two of them are decorative).
The master bedroom alone has two fireplaces to itself, and it takes up the entire second floor. It’s incredibly cozy, with built-in bookcases sandwiching one of the fireplaces and exposed beams and enough space for a walk-in closet and master bath. Up on the third and final dormer floor there are extremely large hardwood planks—some look like they could be a foot-wide.
There are some other notable perks: A landscaped backyard with a trellis and brick pavers, and the seller is throwing in a year of paid parking nearby.
The asking price of the home is $795,000. There’s an open house on Saturday, April 29 from 12 to 2 p.m.
