A stone-front rowhome in Manayunk, with 2,000 square feet of space and a cozy guest suite downstairs, just dropped on the market for $269,900.
The home, a four-bed, three-bath place, sits on Terrace Street, blocks from Main Street and the Schuylkill River. The first story of the home opens to a living room with pine floors, which have been part of the house since it was built in 1930. The living room is connected to a kitchen with arched doorways that open into a mudroom and outdoor patio.
The four bedrooms upstairs feature slanted ceilings, including one with a large skylight.
But the home has a (kind of hidden) bonus: The lower level holds a private guest suite, accessible through a private, back door entrance. The guest suite is essentially a miniature version of a home, with a dining area, bedroom, bathroom, and a small kitchen. Off the kitchen sits a living area, which is connected to the other rooms via a little arched window.
The door to the guest suite opens to a stone courtyard outside. The home has dropped in price since it was last sold in 2008, when it went for over $300,000.
