The renovations will take place within a gorgeous, classic Northwest Philadelphia-style home. Stone covers the first and second floors of the building, with a red-shingled mansard roof at the third floor. A great circular turret stands on the corner, adding extravagance to the elegant structure. A small yard with garden space separates the building from the street.

The new renovations will bring a small, but still noteworthy density upgrade to the surrounding area. The addition of seven residential units will provide a solid addition to the neighborhood’s housing stock. Additionally, the project ensures the preservation of the existing building and rules out the potential of demolition, a major win for the neighborhood’s and the city’s architectural and historic heritage.

No completion date is known for the project at this time, though construction may be finished by 2022 or 2023.

  1. My goodness, what a beautiful classic castle!

    This is the type of property you would take a selfie at.

    You are served by SEPTA bus route H (transit info reports delays at this time) with service to the Erie station of the Broad Street Line.

    As for parking; well, satellite image shows a driveway access to the rear, however; I am unsure if that is within the property limit.

  2. Is there a Regional Rail station close by?

    • You’ll find the Upsal station of the SEPTA regional rail at 6460 Greene Street providing service to Suburban Station within walking distance of 2½ city blocks. 😉
