Classic Philadelphia row homes aren’t all that rare. In fact, they’re not rare at all. What is rare is finding one that’s in such great condition, updated where it counts, with elements of its original character intact.

What’s even rarer is finding one of these with a side lot attached.

This home in Graduate Hospital, then, is a rare find indeed.

Living-dining room

On its street floor, you’ll find an open living/dining room with exposed beam ceilings and recessed lighting.

Kitchen

In an ell off the dining area is an up-t0-date kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

Second-floor bedroom

Technically, this home is a trinity, for each of the two upper floors contains a bedroom and a bathroom.

Bathroom

The second-floor bathroom includes a huge linen closet.

Master bedroom

The top-floor master bedroom has its shower stall in the sleeping area and the toilet and vanity in a separate bathroom, another unusual touch.

Patio

The partly finished basement contains the laundry facilities, and there’s a small paved patio in back that you get to through a door off the living/dining room.

A gate leads from the patio to the adjacent included side lot. You could use it for parking, landscape it for use as a garden or terrace, or even add space to your home if you wish.

This home is also conveniently located. You’re close to several popular local eateries as well as shopping and dining on South Street West. You can shop for groceries at the Grays Ferry Triangle on one side and the Grays Ferry Plaza shopping center on the other, and the Penn campus and hospitals in West Philadelphia are just as close at hand.
