426 Federal St Philadelphia PA 19147 | $389,900

South Philadelphia 

Here’s something rare these days: a great sized 3-story 3 bedroom lovely house just below Washington Ave – across from the park, on a superblock with double the street parking, wood floors, and some outdoor space.

1ST FLOOR: Enter into a large open space with room for living and dining (or working). Hardwood floors run throughout the house.

KITCHEN: Open layout flows into a very large kitchen, remodeled with a ton of marble counter space, plenty of cabinet storage, stainless appliances, dishwasher, disposal, great lighting, and classic subway tile. The kitchen opens into a large bright space for dining, relaxing, or working from home.

REAR YARD: Private space with plenty of room for guests, grilling, and gardening.

2ND FLOOR: Front Bedroom with walk-in closet, a great view of the park. Hall bathroom all newer ceramic and fixtures. 2nd Floor Rear: 2nd Bedroom – plenty of room, and features a double sliding door overlooking roof and a great view to the trees in the back.

3RD FLOOR: Large lofted space with vaulted ceiling, recessed lighting, exposed brick, large built-in storage closets, superb light, and great views. BASEMENT: Good height with full laundry set-up, plenty of room for storage or craft. UPGRADES have been made to windows, roofing, and a high-efficiency boiler was installed – providing radiant heat for the home in addition to domestic hot water heating.

This is not a flip but a house lovingly maintained and improved by a family. This is your chance to own a lovely home, thoughtfully upgraded, with a great amount of space, a yard, and much easier parking in one of Philadelphia’s best neighborhoods – all at a reasonable price. The area has proven to be a great investment for almost two decades now, close to dozens of the things we love most about our City. If you know – then you know, but if you don’t, here you go: the Italian Market, the best Asian Markets, South Street, close walk to Society Hill and Zahav, the best Taquerias in the City and Barbacoa, Pat’s & Geno’s, Termini’s, Isgro, DiBruno’s, Coffee and Pastries and Pizza, plus everything that Passyunk Ave offers – pasta, great hardware stores, funny suits, infamous Italian restaurants, dress shops, Vespa shops, cheeses, and flowers. All over there are play spaces, open spaces, Jefferson Square Park (across the street), Dickinson Square Park close-by, and the public pool (all very well managed due to highly involved neighbors). The house is close to the waterfront, two minutes to Home Depot, Target, Lowes, and other big-box retail when you need it. Interstate 95 is right there putting Delaware and Jersey within easy reach, and of course… you’re a quick shot to Center City for work or more play. House is easy to show and a pleasure to walk through.

About South Philadelphia

South Philadelphia (South Philly as its known locally) is south of South Street extending down to the area around Citizens Bank Park and Lincoln Financial Field. This vast area of the city is a combination of about a dozen neighborhoods including Pennsport, East Passyunk, and the Italian Market. In the 1800s, it housed a huge immigrant population, and to this day the area continues to host people of many different ethnic backgrounds. The properties are also diverse in range, from small rowhomes to beautiful villas and new townhouses. All of Philadelphia’s sports centers are located in South Philadelphia, along with the best cheesesteaks, family restaurants, bakeries, pasta shops, and mom-and-pop stores. These are neighborhoods with a strong sense of community and history. There is a host of homes here for almost any budget.
