Minutes from Wissahickon Valley Park on one side, and the Allen Lane train station on the other, sits this sunny country-style home, offering a bright interior and several homey details.
The three-bed, 1.5-bath place on West Mount Airy Avenue opens into a sunroom with one wall of windows, crown molding, and hardwood floors. That connects to a living room (complete with an ornamental brick fireplace) and a dining area. The first floor also holds an updated kitchen with granite countertops and a tile backsplash.
The second floor has the bedrooms and bathroom. The home has several other draws, too, like a garage—a difficult find in Philly—, a backyard with blueberry bushes, and a basement with a washer and dryer.
The home was built in 1925. The last time it listed was over a decade ago, when it sold for $230,000 in 2005.
