Live in an updated West Philly Victorian for $550K

The spot has that iconic Victorian look

With a spindly turrets, fireplaces, and an old wood staircase, this University City home looks like the cheerier version of the iconic Addams Family mansion—albeit with some contemporary alterations.

The six-bed, 2.5-bath spot just came on the market last week for $550,000, and it’s so popular that it was already listed under contract as of Monday morning. Still, it’s worth checking out the interior, which seamlessly blends that iconic Queen Anne Victorian style with updated rooms and kitchens (yes, plural).

The whole spot opens with a covered porch, followed by a large, tile-floor kitchen, a dining room with a big bay window, and the first of two living rooms.

Up the wood staircase with original carved details, there are several bedrooms on the second and third floors, along with a bath room—and claw-foot tub—and an attic space that holds a kitchenette, with a sink and stove.

The 3,000-square-foot space was built in 1925 but has some newer fixtures, like a new main roof, new windows, and more.
