UNIQUE CARRIAGE HOUSE on charming, quiet street overlooking Cianfrani Park. TWO PROPERTIES IN ONE... a large 3-story front house with loft style open plan, plus a 3-story trinity with light-filled rooms and high ceilings attached at the rear. This building offers great flexibility and opportunity to create a large home with multi-purpose rooms or maintain the trinity as an au pair or in-law suite. The main house and trinity have separate staircases with access front to back on the 2nd and 3rd floors plus the basement level. The back stairs could be a perfect place to add an elevator. Ceiling heights range from 8.5-12', maximizing the feeling of space. The upper floor has 2 skylights for wonderful light. One skylight affords roof access for a potential deck with spectacular city views. There is an appealing tree-shaded garden with access to the street via a private walkway and gate. 717 is located in Bella Vista, steps to park, restaurants, and the Italian Market as well as all that Center City has to offer. This old house has "good bones" and is ready for your renovation to become a 21st century gem!
