We know, we know, we keep featuring homes for sale in Northwest Philly. But in our defense, all the stellar listings that are fresh to the market lately make it so easy – like this Germany Hill townhome that was just re-listed, is incredibly affordable and would make a great first-time home.

Right away, we have to mention the adorable front porch (although it might not be so adorable if you don’t like your neighbors). From there, enter inside to the main floor, which is highlighted by wood flooring that balance greatly with the brick fireplace in the corner of the living room and the light colored walls throughout. From the living room, reach the dining room and then the updated kitchen.

The backyard is accessible from the kitchen and is perfect for any family who wants to add a four-legged friend to the mix. It’s not easy having a dog in the city, but this property has enough length in the backyard to give your pet the space he or she needs to play.

The second floor is home to three decently sized bedrooms, one of which is the master. Although it doesn’t have its own en-suite bathroom, it does boast two closets and a cool alcove. The only full bathroom in the home is up here, as well, and features a skylight.

Although the basement is unfinished, it features a laundry area, cabinetry space, workshop space, and an additional area that could potentially become an at-home gym (if you so desire, of course).   

This property is situated on a quiet street and is close to local parks, “The Ridge,” Manayunk’s Main Street, public transportation, and more. If you are looking to set out and get that first place of your own or start a family, give it a look. We don’t think it will stay on the market long.
