Passyunk Square 

Welcome to 1225 Ellsworth! Take a moment to appreciate the fully refurbished facade, newly completed. Once you’re ready, walk up the stoop and enter the expansive living room, you’ll find an open floor plan, yet with clearly defined spaces for living, eating, and cooking. Notice the abundant overhead lighting and bamboo floors. Off of the dining room is a half bath. Enter the kitchen with soapstone counters, stainless steel appliances, subway tile backsplash, and a large farmhouse sink. Off the kitchen is a back patio, perfect for grilling and dining al fresco. The main level outdoor space wraps around to the east of the home as well. Once you’re back inside, check out the reconstructed banister as you walk up the stairs to the second floor. At the second floor landing there is a large rear bedroom with a walk in closet and less then two year old washer and dryer. Back in the hallway you’ll see the spacious full bathroom, with a unique Chippendale style vanity, hex tile floors, subway tile walls, and a clawfoot tub. The second floor also has an additional front bedroom. Walk up one more flight of stairs to an enormous, main bedroom. As you get to the top of the stairs you’ll instantly notice the French doors which lead you out to a roof with skyline views that’s ready for a new deck. This house also has a large basement with ample storage space. Triple-pane, energy efficient, windows were installed throughout the house in 2017. The sellers have just received a quote of $15,500 to install wall mounted AC mini splits throughout the home from a reputable HVAC contractor. Steps from the Broad St subway, Columbus Square Park, and so many terrific shops and restaurants on 9th St and Passyunk Ave. Come take a look, fall in love, and move right in!

About Passyunk Square

Many call Passyunk Square a “hot” neighborhood. Others call it “the cool place to be.” Either way, there are many reasons to call it “home.”

With boundaries extending from Washington Avenue south to Tasker Street, and from 6th Street west to Broad, East Passyunk Square forms the heart of the community. Lined with restaurants, bars, boutiques, spas, salons, and more, it encompasses everything from Italian BYOs to gastropubs taking bar food to new levels. Other popular Passyunk Square destinations include Philadelphia’s Italian Market and the two restaurants that form one of the fiercest culinary rivalries in history — Pat’s versus Geno’s.

Passyunk Square has a promising future, and the community’s architecture proudly reflects its past. Large brownstones and trinities comprise much of the mix. There’s also an assortment of red brick row homes mixed with others built in the Federal and Colonial styles.
