Don't miss out on this Victorian gem in Germantown with income-producing potential! This lovely 4-bed, 3 and a half bath home boasts tons of updates while maintaining original character. This property is zoned as a single family residence, but is set up like a duplex. The third floor is a large one-bedroom apartment with its own kitchen, living/dining area, bathroom and separate entrance. This is a great home for a primary residence with the option to rent out the third-floor suite.

Historic details include a Franklin stove in the kitchen, built-in hoosier cabinets, tons of original woodwork, and floor-to-ceiling front windows. Other highlights include high ceilings, exposed brick, refinished hardwood floors throughout, a 2-car garage, gated driveway, front porch, large backyard, and a spacious in-law suite with a separate entrance. Upgrades include a completely renovated kitchen, renovated master bath, improved master closet, new lighting fixtures, a new cement back patio with a new ceiling fan, a new HVAC system, updates to the 3rd-floor kitchen, and a newly added powder room on the first floor. The second floor features a huge master suite, and the basement offers tons of storage space and a washer/dryer. The huge fenced-in backyard provides a private oasis for relaxing and activities like gardening, grilling, entertaining, etc. The yard has established perennials that will come back every spring and take little to maintain, with vibrant summer flowers. There is also a fig tree that produces a bounty of figs in the late summer!

Enjoy living in a vibrant, green neighborhood where you can walk to tons of parks including the Wissahickon. This blossoming area offers plenty of great shops and markets nearby. Weaver's Way is opening a large location about 3 blocks away! A few local gems include Uncle Bobbie's bookstore, Wild Hand fiber store, Pomelo plant shop, Ultimo Coffee and Young American Cidery. You're also just a short walk away from 2 regional rail stations for an easy commute to Center City. Schedule your showing today!
