First-Time Find: A Little Gem in Port Richmond for $146.5K
Usually, we go combing listings throughout the city and suburbs in search of dynamite homes for sale at modest prices to feature in this weekly space.
But every once in a while, the gods of email smile on us and deposit jewels in our lap.
That was the case with this newly listed two-story rowhome in Port Richmond.
On the outside, it looks every inch the typical smaller Philly row home, the kind that’s perfect for a young couple starting out on a homeownership adventure. These homes usually have fairly traditional layouts with separate living and dining rooms and a kitchen in the back.
Inside, however, this home is one of those 21st-century open-plan beauties that usually sell for much more than this.
Well, almost open plan. The main floor has been nicely buffed up and polished with recessed lighting and brand-new hardwood floors. The kitchen has likewise gotten the contemporary treatment with high-end Shaker-style cabinetry, subway tile backsplash, granite countertops and the latest in appliances and fixtures.
Upstairs you’ll find two sunny bedrooms and an Art Deco-inspired bath with soaking tub. Downstairs you’ll find laundry facilities, plenty of storage space and a powder room with vanity mirror trimmed in gold leaf. Out back is a spacious paved rear yard.
The decorative trim throughout this home is lovely. The price is even lovelier still. And it’s in a convenient location to boot.
