We got hit with heavy rain on photo day, but that couldn't stop this Wissahickon (the southernmost section of Roxborough) home from shining like the gem that it is. Fronting onto a tree-lined street that could easily be described as bucolic, this fully renovated, 3-bedroom house is just off of Ridge Avenue, providing easy access to Lincoln Drive and I-76. Combine that with two-car, off-street parking (both a garage and an additional covered spot), and it's a definite upgrade to the average car commuter's daily experience. The area is also serviced by SEPTA regional rail and bus routes, if that's more your jam, and it's about a 20 minute Uber ride to Center City. The grassy front yard has a large planting bed and a covered porch area, excellent for keeping an eye on whippersnappers and scalawags ;-). On the inside, the open concept living room leads to a dining area adjacent to a well-planned kitchen with ample storage space (this side-by-side kitchen/dining room layout is known as "airlite" design). The dining room opens out onto a large deck that's great for entertaining. The upstairs has 3 bedrooms, a large master and two smaller, as well as the bathroom. The front portion of the basement level is fully finished and ready to serve as anything from a beer cave to a romper room. This level also contains the laundry room and mechanicals for the central heating and air, and it can be accessed from the kitchen above or from the garage/parking area in the rear. A new roof was put on in 2011, and almost all of the windows have been replaced in the last 3 years. Both the home and the location strike a really nice balance between city and suburban living.
