If you’ve ever wondered what it’d be like to live on one of Philly’s most beautiful streets, here’s your chance: A recently renovated home on S. Quince Street in Washington Square West has just hit the market.
Named one of the most beautiful streets in Philly by Curbed readers, the cobblestone Quince Street is hidden in the heart of the neighborhood and lined with historic rowhomes. What makes it even more appealing is that it manages to stay pretty quiet even though it’s surrounded by the busy blocks of Jefferson Hospital and the rest of Center City.
This home at 254 S. Quince Street dates back to the 1820s and clocks in at 1,560 square feet. It resembles a Trinity—there’s a spiral staircase and the kitchen resides in the basement—but it’s been recently renovated and updated over the years, creating a more open floor plan and enough room for four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Despite its updates, the home manages to retain its original charm. There are wide plank pumpkin pine floors, six fireplaces, and the back patio features brick paving and built-in planters.
The asking price of the home is $599,000.
