Queen Village is one of the oldest residential neighborhoods in the city, boasting several historic homes from the 18th and 19th centuries, no doubt about it (it was added to the city property in the mid-1800s). But c’mon, you have to admit this house is more reminiscent of vaunted Spruce Street properties, and less like the South Philadelphia home that it is.

The house, built circa 1829, is within the catchment area of the William M. Meredith School and it offers original random-width hardwood floors (rumoured to be Carolina Pine), four fireplaces (two bedrooms have them) and a brand new kitchen with a view of the back garden.  One of the upstairs bathrooms has also been remodeled recently.

Up on the second level are two bedrooms, while the third floor holds another, this one significantly larger than the other two. It also has a bonus room.
