The 1600 block of South 13th Street in Passyunk Square is a magical place this time of year, as homes combined their exterior decorating forces to create one of Philly’s most celebrated holiday attractions known as the “Miracle on 13th Street.” (Edit: Ticket reports Travel + Leisure named it as one of the tops holiday spots in the nation!)

We would imagine that most everyone who visits the spectacle ultimately draws two conclusions by the time their walk (or car/bike ride) spans the block and crosses Tasker Street: how the hell do they do it and what is it like to live on the street during the holidays?

Well, if you’re in the market for a newly renovated rowhome located near East Passyunk Avenue (and love, love, luvvvvv the holiday season), you might want to check out this listing at 1620 South 13th Street.

Open houses are scheduled on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, with the latter two days having their showing in the evening. So make a date of it and go see the lights!

Aside from the location, here’s a lot to love about the refinished home, including the spacious open floor plan on the first floor. The cedar crown molding is a nice touch, and the hardwood flooring flows into the revamped kitchen, which features high-end appliances and a separate mud room with a washer/dryer.

A lovely exposed brick wall travels up the 100-year-old original pine and oak staircase and into the second floor living spaces, including a bedroom with an ensuite. The third floor has a larger master suite with a spa-like bath.

Not to be overlooked, the overhaul also took the nitty-gritty into mind with the installation of new insulated windows, 120,000 BTU HVAC system, 200-amp electrical service (you gotta light your holiday decorations!), and a Maniblock manifold system, which allows for easy water shutoff to various plumbing fixtures, like the dishwasher or hot water heater.
