In Washington Square, a restored, 200-year-old home asks $600K

It’s an historic, two-bed stunner

David Arena, Alcove Media

Philly homes are full of history, but it can be difficult to find a place that hasn’t been outfitted with all contemporary details.

That’s not the case with this South Carmac place. Built in 1825, the two-bed, one-bath home has undergone restorations that, rather than giving it a 2018 style, brought out the beauty of its original features.

That’s evident in the front room alone, which has hardwood floors and a wide wood stove, along with detailed, built-in shelves and hand-blown glass windows. The kitchen features a stone floor, original wood beams, and a rustic, exposed brick fireplace.

Upstairs, the style continues, with more exposed beams in the master bedroom, accented by another chandelier.

The 1,250-square-foot place has undergone a price spike since it last sold in 1999 for $93,000. If you’re eager to check it out for yourself, there’s an open house on Sunday from noon to 1 p.m.
