Queen Village home from 1861 is loaded with character, asks $1.1M

It’s right next to the Queen Village Community Garden

An end rowhome that sits right next to the expansive Queen Village/Southwark community Garden is sitting pretty on the market for $1,100,000 and is filled with character both inside and out.

First, the exterior: It’s a stately, brick rowhome that’s slightly set back from the sidewalk. Meanwhile, its back and side are covered in a mosaic mural by artist Isaiah Zagar of the Philadelphia Magic Gardens.

There’s just as much to gape once inside the 4,624-square-foot property. A foyer leads to a large front parlor with restored crown molding, original pine floors, and a center fireplace. Even the half-bath on this floor is stunning, too.

One thing you’ll notice about the home is that there are multiple kitchens or kitchenettes throughout. That’s because although the home was originally built in 1861 as a single-family residence for the Queen family, it later served as a house of worship and a rooming house.

Most recently, it was returned to its original purpose as a single residence. Above all of the bedrooms on the upper levels sits an in-law suite on the fourth floor with its own kitchenette.

In total, there are three bedrooms, three full baths, and one half bath. There are also three fireplaces, including the one in the living room, another in one bedroom, and a third in the dining room.
