A remarkable home in an idyllic, garden-rich Philly neighborhood! If a property originally built with such amazing architecture could have been improved upon- this one is it!

Need 8 Bedrooms? Well then how about 4 or 5 or 6 and claim the rest for your Home Office, Gym, or a full Room for your Closet. Enjoy set-a-spell Porches surrounded with heirloom shrubbery, or perch above your expansive back fenced yard with raised bed 'potager' tucked away for fresh herbs and veggies. Carriage House for 2 cars plus additional parking, but with newly Restored Melrose Park Train station just an 8 minute walk away- you may opt for the greener commuting lifestyle and arrive in Center City after only 4 stops!
