After being owned by the same family for the past forty years, this Colonial residence (and do we see a little Tudor in there too?) is due for a change. Not too many of course, given the property’s authentic character (original hardwood floors and wood-burning fireplaces throughout, folks), but certainly something that it’ll provide it with a fresh start.

A total of six bedrooms are offered on the property, which boasts two verdant front and back yards (wouldn’t a swing set and jungle gym be fun?). Inside, the home features original woodwork, moldings, and wainscoting, as well as high ceilings, but could benefit from a little TLC here and there. (Note: There’s also a breakfast room and office.)

The street it’s on also sees minimal traffic, yet has fantastic (less than minute) access to Lincoln Drive and is about 20 minutes from Center City. It’s also less than two blocks from Upsal train station (Chestnut Hill West line) and Wissahickon trails.

All in all, methinks the property would make a splendid residence for a new family looking to set up base for the next forty years.
