Wander the tiny side streets around Washington Square and Society Hill, and you’ll likely run into some of Philly’s best hidden gems—Colonial Revival homes.
That’s the case, at least, with this three-bed, two-and-a-half-bath place tucked away on the narrow Quince Street in Washington Square West, which just listed for $655,000.
The home sits at 1,300 square feet and was built in 1965—about ten years after the Colonial Revival boom. Still, it offers up a prime example of the style, with a brick facade, shallow roof, and windows with multiple panes.
The interior offers plenty of interesting design elements, too, starting with the kitchen, which features a wood-paneled ceiling and maple cabinets. The living area has a large wood fireplace, surrounded by brick, and french doors lead to a sunny patio outside.
Upstairs, the second and third floor hold the three bedrooms with hardwood floors and large windows that let in tons of light.
The home has increased in price since it last sold in 2007 for $494,000. If you want to check it out for yourself, there’s an open house on Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.
