135 ELFRETHS ALY, Philadelphia, PA 19106  

A true piece of Philadelphia history. Built in 1771, it is located on the oldest residential street in America. This home with over 2800 square feet of living space and high ceilings is the largest on the street and features a beautifully landscaped 1400 square foot garden. The open space first floor layout consists of a living room, dining room, kitchen, library/guest room and wall of windows leading to the magnificent outdoor space. There are 3 oversized bedrooms including the master suite with a sitting room and den. Second and third floors each have a private deck and access to the garden. Finished basement includes a sauna and a full bath. The open floor plan is perfect for a growing family or a professional couple in need of a live/work space. The home's partition walls can easily be restored to provide five bedrooms; a grown family can use the top two floors as a duplex or in-law apartment with full kitchen and laundry; and entrances both through the house and privately through the gardens. ~The floors throughout are rare red heart pine floors, the original moldings remain. The fireplaces have hand-carved mantles and Valley Forge marble facing. There are modern features in the kitchens with new cabinets, granite counter tops and Bosch appliances. This home has been beautifully conserved. The private garden / courtyard is a perfect setting for large gatherings or intimate breakfasts and dinners. Must be seen to be appreciated.
