Located in the heart of Roxborough, welcome home to this lovingly maintained four bedroom, one and a half bathroom single-family residence. This classic brick construction offers an extra wide lot with ample outdoor space, including a deep backyard and side yard.
On the main level, you’ll find an open and remodeled kitchen with a large gas stove and ample cabinetry and counter space. A light-filled and enclosed four season porch is the perfect spot for enjoying your morning cup of coffee or curling up with a good book. Both the finished basement with built-ins and the oversized attic provide plenty of storage space.
The bar was handcrafted by the owner, the former newspaper columnist Joe Sixpack, who repurposed one of the old pre-digital editing tables at the Philadelphia Daily News. It is covered with thousands of tiny razor cuts left by editors who trimmed printed copy and photographs to fit the pages of the newspaper. Here were shaped the words of Chuck Stone, Pete Dexter, Ray Didinger, Rose DeWolf and many others from Philadelphia's "People Paper." Additional home highlights include central air and a detached garage.
You'll fall in love with this peaceful neighborhood that overlooks the Wissahickon Valley and its famous Forbidden Drive trail. This quiet block is within walking distance of the Upper Roxborough Reservoir Preserve and the wooded hiking trails of the 340-acre Schuylkill Center. Shops, markets and local businesses are within easy reach, and at just 10 miles from Center City, Philadelphia, you're within a short commute by car or public transit.
