Weekend Open Houses: Two Homes in Manayunk and West Mt. Airy

Living space of 153 Kalos Street.

Living space of 153 Kalos Street.

Visiting these two homes in Manayunk and two in West Mt. Airy could determine which has the most living appeal– although, they all have their pros.

First, the Kalos Street home has been completely rehabbed and sits near a small truss of restaurants surrounding Ridge Avenue (FYI, the neighborhood is one of a handful in the city with a high density of pizzerias). Meanwhile, the Grape Street residence is just a little over a 10-minute walk from Never Give Up Training, a studio offering intensive fitness classes. It’s also been updated and includes a sizable roof deck with views of the city.

In West Mt. Airy we have a Tudor home on W Ellet Street that’s been redesigned into a condo. This house has quick access to all the resources downtown Philadelphia has to offer, being that it’s less than four blocks from Carpenter Station (Chestnut Hill West Line). The last open home is on W Mount Pleasant Avenue, has a WalkScore of 85 (it’s less than half a block from lively Germantown Ave), and boasts extensive reclaimed lumber.
