An adorable single-family home in the tiny neighborhood of Blue Bell Hill in Northwest Philly has hit the market for the first time in more than three decades.

The home dates back to about 1859, and the listing states that the current owners have always been told that it is the “best-looking house on the block.” The 1,256-square-foot home no doubt has incredible curb appeal, from its white-and-green facade and cozy porch to the dormer window that sits at the top.

The two-bedroom, one-bath home features a mix of original details, plus a number of updates that the owners have put into the home over the past 32 years. Original pumpkin pine floors line the first floor, coupled with new windows and solar-powered lights throughout the home.

Adding to the home’s charm is the wrought-iron fence that wraps around the home’s front yard and lush backyard.

The asking price of the home is $272,000.
