“We rehabbed this house for us. We would stay here forever, but life is taking us back west.” – the sellers
This completely rehabbed Spruce Hill home is on a gorgeous tree-lined block of Melville Street in the Penn Alexander catchment area. It comes with 2-car parking, one in the garage and one in a covered car port. The first floor is fully open with a mix of modern amenities and traditional details; there are high ceilings and original hardwood flooring throughout, and expanded kitchen with lots of windows, loads of counter space and storage, and French doors leading to the deck. There is also a lovely west-facing sunroom at the front of the house. The second floor has three bedrooms, one of which is a master suite with a full bathroom. There is another full bathroom off the hallway between the other two bedrooms. The basement is very large and can be accessed from the first floor or from the garage. The home has all new systems, including central air, as well as new windows and a lead-safe certification. Just down the block is everything Baltimore Avenue has to offer, such as Clarkville Pizza, Green Line Cafe, Clark Park, and the various trolley and bus lines running to and from Center City.
