There’s nothing quite like stumbling across a spacious, updated, and affordable house in a great city neighborhood – and more often than not, we find such a property somewhere in Northwest Philly. What can we say? As of late, the area just keeps on delivering.

Which brings us to this week’s first-time find, this stone and brick semi-detached home in East Mt. Airy. Built in the 1930s and recently reconstructed, this once-retro home is now an up-to-date space suitable to the needs of you and your family.

Inside the main level, a semi-open floor plan leads from the living room into a spacious dining area attached to an all-new kitchen. Parquet oak floors flow throughout this level. Features of the kitchen include marble countertops, white subway tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, white cabinetry, and a breakfast bar.

Three sizable bedrooms and a hall bathroom can be found on the second level. The master suite has an en-suite bathroom of its own, along with large closets. The home also boasts a carpeted finished basement with a powder room, giving your family additional recreational space, and out back there’s a huge double-lot rear yard behind the drive alley that leads to the attached basement garage.

If you’re a potential homebuyer eager for comfortable living within city limits, this is it. Come take a look for yourself, because we’re sure this won’t stay on the market for long.
