It’s not every day that you’ll run into a home in the city so well-maintained and affordable–it’s totally updated and priced under $220,000.

The least a first time homeowner could ask for are somewhat spacious quarters and modern appliances. This charming home checks those boxes off and does more–with fresh updates like new hardwood flooring, replaced windows, roof and carpeting, it’s a new homeowner’s dream.

Inside, the living room is a comfortable and airy space for entertaining friends and guests, with the fireplace serving as a charismatic centerpiece. This space opens up to the eat-in kitchen, arguably the most stunning part of the home. It’s a brand new space for all types of culinary minds to enjoy, with creamy cabinetry that mimics country house aesthetics, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, recessed lighting and glass-tile backsplash.

Upstairs, the three bedrooms are also quite spacious, with new carpeting, ample closet space and ceiling fans. The bathroom is newly tiled and freshly painted.

Out back, a new deck gives you and yours a splendid view of the Schuylkill’s opposite bank over the rooftops of Manayunk, and there’s also a spacious yard for outdoor relaxation and entertaining.

With Main Street close by and public transportation even closer, this home is a must for those looking for the best of both city life and quiet living.





PRICE: $212,500
