Tucked away in Graduate Hospital, in a quiet little area sometime referred to as “Devil’s Pocket” is this distinctly Philly home, which offers both rustic and sleek, contemporary elements for $350,000.
The two-bed, one-bath place, was built in 1925 and still retains a lot of its early 20th century charm, especially in aspects like the original hardwood floors in the living room. In fact, the front room has a lot of the home’s most interesting details, from the small stone floor vestibule, to its exposed brick walls and hardwood ceiling beams.
In the back of the house, a sleek kitchen with frosted glass cabinets connects to a stone floor dining area and a porch out back.
A wrought iron semi-circular staircase leads upstairs to the two bedrooms, which feature exposed brick, hardwood floors, and transom windows. Plus, the master bedroom has access to a porch.
The 1,000-square-foot home has seen a price jump since it last listed in 2011 for $210,000. It sits on Webster Street, just blocks from the Schuylkill River.
