Description for 962 N 5TH Street Philadelphia, PA 19123
Great and rare opportunity to own an original Northern Liberties house from the1860~s while earning rental income. This impressive property, lovingly restored, is currently an owner occupied duplex but is zoned for 3 units. Present owners preferred to maintain two large units while leaving the future possibility of an easy third apartment addition to the motivated entrepreneur. Alternatively, the house is even more easily converted back to a grand, single family home. The house boasts high ceilings, plaster moldings and medallions, ornamental marble fireplaces and gorgeous wide plank cedar pine floors throughout.The owner's unit is entered through high double paneled doors to a 33 foot double parlor with large windows leading through a hallway with closet, with entrance to formal dining room. The kitchen is located on the~1st floor rear, and has all new appliances within the past 5 years, large custom made cabinets, andred tile countertops with French accent backsplash. The rear staircase with a skylight leads to a bedroom, new bath and a walk in closet (or office space).The owner's unit has a beautiful rear fenced yard -- a perfect retreat in the summer surrounded with raised beds of perennials, shrubs, grape vine and a flowering pear tree in the center. Truly an oasis! A long side walkway provides more space for container plants and outside storage which leads to the shared alley front gate to the street. The upstairs apartment has a private entrance at the end of the ground level hallway and is graced with a decorative stained glass piece. Continue up the winding front staircase with mahogany railing to a spacious 3 level apartment. The first floor has a newer renovated kitchen, bath, and large living room with plenty of light and a marble fireplace. Upstairs are two bedrooms and another bath. The Third level consists of two dormer rooms with views of the city to the east and west. Stackable washer and dryer on the entrance level and ceiling fans on the first two floors. The house renovations include new roofs, and updated plumbing and electrical in the past 6 years. Huge basement has 2 Weil Mclain heaters, 2 Rheem water heaters and a washer and dryer. Plenty of space for storage and/or a workshop. This home must be seen to fully appreciate its historical essence, exquisite architectural features, and versatility.
