This is a rarely offered large and beautiful home with a deep yard on a great block surrounded by fantastic neighbors – and won’t last long. Showings to begin morning May 7th. Home is occupied but easy to show and a pleasure to walk through.

About Art Museum

Philadelphia’s Art Museum neighborhood is rich in Victorian-era architecture and close to many of the city’s world-renowned museums and landmarks including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Rodin Museum, Eastern State Penitentiary, Franklin Institute, Free Library of Philadelphia, and soon, the new Barnes Foundation on the Parkway. Philadelphia’s Art Museum neighborhood borders on Fairmount Park, the nation’s largest municipal park — an ideal location for hiking, biking, sports, a run with the dog, or a lazy day in the sun. In recent years the Art Museum area has blossomed with bistros, taverns, grocery stores, cafés, and a prized community garden, the Spring Gardens. Other names for this Philadelphia neighborhood and its neighbors include Fairmount, Spring Garden, and Francisville among others. Brewerytown, another Philadelphia neighborhood on the rise, sits northwest of the Art Museum.

The neighborhood is served by plenty of public transportation options including buses and trolleys.
