On the Market: 2-Bedroom On the Oldest Residential Street in America
Every now and again a home on Elfreth’s Alley–the country’s oldest continually inhabited street– becomes available. Without looking too far, a record number of three of these historic residences were put on the market earlier this year–all right before Independence Day, go figure. (Yeah ‘murca!)
Lately, another one of these American heirlooms was listed for sale. (Another one could be hitting the market soon, too. But more on that as Halloween moves closer…)
In this case, 130 Elfreth’s Alley, a red-shuttered dwelling built in 1741, is furnished with fireplaces showing off decorative mantles, wide-planked flooring made of pine wood, and a brick exterior with lintels, cornices and dormers. In the summer, the rear brick patio would be swell for meals since it’s connected to the eat-in kitchen.
