Historic Home on Tiny Quince Street

One of Philadelphia’s most charming cobblestone streets.

It doesn’t take a history buff to recognize that the narrow cobblestone streets in Washington Square West preserve Philadelphia as it was centuries ago. Located near the nation’s oldest hospital (as well as one of its oldest saloons), the quaint, old-timey feel only intensifies as one enters the living room of 232 S. Quince Street.

While graced with modern amenities, no renovator has yet removed period details like the (newly refinished) original pine flooring, wooden rafters, and a wood-burning fireplace that almost makes us wish for winter.

The main level also includes a full bath (complete with a claw foot tub, of course) and a family room with double doors leading to the back patio.

The lower level of the home has dining room with a brick wood-burning fireplace and custom cabinetry. Next door is a kitchen with very modern granite countertops. Upstairs the master bedroom has wooden ceiling beams, a gas fireplace, recessed lighting, and a dressing room. The upper level also has two other bedrooms and a full bathroom.
