This c.1895, three-story Victorian twin, on the border between the Spruce Hill and Cedar Park neighborhoods in University City/West Philadelphia, is within the catchment area for the high-performing Penn Alexander K-8 public grade school (though admission is never guaranteed). The house has been totally upgraded over the past eight years, while still retaining so many of its original Victorian details. It's a sun-filled 3135 s.f. with 4-5 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, including a huge main bedroom suite with a walk-in closet and luxury bath. The rear deck off the kitchen overlooks a super-large yard (lot size 23 x 130), and the walk-out basement with high ceilings makes a great semi-finished additional space for work or play. The location is only 1.5 blocks from University City's Baltimore Avenue "main street," with its collection of quirky, locally owned restaurants and shops. Two trolleys - the #34 on Baltimore Ave. and the #13 on Chester Ave. - can whisk you to center city in 15 minutes, stopping at the Penn and Drexel campuses and the 30th St. transportation hub along the way. The Penn bus stops at the corner.
