It’s been sometime since we’ve seen one of these puppies jump on the market, so you can understand our excitement: the residence at 109 Elfreth’s Alley – built in 1713, naturally – is now a pristine renovation with two-car parking and new heating and A/C. Oh, and did we mention it comes with a functioning historic fountain? It’s been totally restored.

To be sure, the home is a good mix of Old World Philadelphia and the younger city we’re seeing today. Painstakingly updated for the past two years, the home now comes with brand new bathrooms, carpets, and electric. It’s been given a fresh coat of paint, as well, and its kitchen is now a contemporary, high-end space with stainless steel appliances. Moreover, all rooms are wired for cable and internet.

Original features include random-width flooring, stone fireplaces and mantels (three in all), and a brick-pavered courtyard that holds the parking area and fountain and is accessed by sliders on the first level. Other details of note: attic, within McCall School catchment walking distance to Old City and Society Hill amenities. Specs and photos below.
