LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. One of West Mount Airy's finest locations, this 3 BR, 1 1/2 bath row offers spacious sized rooms, a full finished basement and a rear deck to enjoy nature and privacy, BUT... it really needs updating. Present owner has been there 45 years, and it's time to move on and the price reflects updating needed: Paneling, carpeting, dining room floor was raised several years ago and can (should) be removed. The heater was replaced about 5 yrs ago, water heater last year. Walk out the fence gate to a small alley shortcut to Green St. The property sits in a quaint neighborhood, a mix of old homes, small old world stores and a new condominium development selling $400,000 condos just down the block. Walk next door to Weaver's Way Co-op, selling local, organic, healthy foods. Have a cup of coffee and a sandwich on the sidewalk bistro table, walk to Henry Elementary School, cross the street to the cleaners, or take a writing course at the Big Blue Marble Bookstore next door. This is a great fixer-upper for one who wants to live in a walkable, harmonious neighborhood where parents push their strollers for fresh air and people greet you as they pass by. Fabulous Chestnut Hill shopping 5 minutes away. Lincoln Dr easily takes you to Center City, Creshiem Valley Rd to the Suburbs; Allen Ln or Carpenter Ln Regional Rail Stations close by.
