Property Description

Wonderful early 20th century four-square brick twin in East Falls with 6 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Large enclosed and heated front porch leads to an inviting and centrally located entry hall with traditional wall sconces. From the entry hall, one enters a spacious living room with fireplace (not used in many years), picture molding and crown molding. The formal dining room, trimmed with crown molding and chair railings, will accommodate both large gatherings and more intimate family get-togethers. The first floor offers two special features: a 12x13 bonus room perfect for flexible use in the “new normal” work-learn-from-home lifestyle and an up-to-date powder room. The eat-in kitchen is at the rear of the first floor offering refrigerator, gas cooking, good counterspace and cabinetry and exit to fenced rear yard. The second floor features a very large main bedroom that stretches across the front of the house complete with fireplace, stained glass windows and good closets. There are 2 more spacious bedrooms, each with closet, and a hall baths with shower/tub combination. The third floor offers a 3rd full bathroom and two more good-sized bedrooms, one with the potential for an in-law or au pair suite. Hardwood floors, high ceilings and wonderful light throughout. Large basement with high ceilings for tons of storage space, for utilities, for laundry. Gas hot water heat (2018); gas-fired domestic hot water heater (2016); 100 AMP circuit breaker electric panel. The fenced rear yard is big enough for a badminton game, or gardens, or private summer dinners al fresco. East Falls is a popular neighborhood with great restaurants, McMichael Park, East Falls Library, both public and private schools, and a variety of places of worship. It's a 10 minute drive to Center City and has 2 convenient commuter rail lines, Chestnut Hill West and Norristown. Cyclists, hikers, rowers and nature-lovers flock to the close-by Wissahickon Creek section of Fairmount Park or to the resources of the Schuylkill River. Property needs updating. A property inspection report is available for review. Property is an estate and is being sold "as-is". Showings start on Friday, January 22. Offers can first be reviewed Tuesday, January 26

I feel extremely fortunate to have been very successful. As a matter of fact, my team and I have been sales leaders in our office every year. I am in the top 1\/2 of the top 1% of sale agents nationwide in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network. Hard work, organization, attention to detail, education and really wonderful clients have all contributed to the yearly sales production. I think, most of all, my success may be due to realizing that life isn\u2019t just real estate.\nLife, for me, has been a coming together of all kinds of opportunities and terrific people, starting with my wonderful husband, Tom, my three super children, John, Chris and Susan, my beautiful grandchildren, Iris, Phoebe, Teddy, Gus, Will, Beatrice and Olive and a coterie of warm and caring friends. Taking a break with family and friends is very important. It\u2019s what makes it possible for me to give the sustained professional attention to your real estate transactions when you need me. And it makes it possible to look outside myself, as we all must do, to give back to my community whenever I can.\nAnd I love Philadelphia! What a marvelous city offering so many opportunities! How lucky Tom and I have been to be able to raise our children here. Philadelphia is full of the gritty realities of a northeastern city. It has its share of urban blight, poverty, and crime. But it also offers neighborhoods with character and tradition, great museums, a world-class orchestra, innovative theatre, extraordinary educational institutions, the vitality of cultural diversity, a rich texture of history and architecture, and, amazingly, more sylvan parkland within its borders than any other city in the country. Not to mention some of the best restaurants in the country! This is a city of extraordinary accomplishment, and it is full of promise. It is a place where a person can make a mark. It is a place where the rewards of reaching out are without measure.\nSo, no, life isn\u2019t just real estate. For me, it is also family, friends, my wonderful team, the Germantown Friends School, Habitat for Humanity, Historic Germantown and Chestnut Hill Historical Societies, my block of Pulaski Avenue, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Lyric Fest, Preservation Alliance, the Academy of Natural Sciences, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Germantown Relief Society and more.\n","area_of_expertise":"REALTOR\u00ae, Associate Broker, Team Leader","team":false,"office_cpt":false,"awards":false,"languages_spoken":"","facebook":"https:\/\/www.facebook.com\/lorettawitthomes\/","twitter":"","instagram":"https:\/\/www.instagram.com\/lorettawitthomes\/","pinterest":"","google_plus":"","linkedin":"https:\/\/www.linkedin.com\/in\/loretta-witt-0376576\/","youtube":"","region_heading":"My Regions Of Expertise","region_description":"","agent_regions":false,"neighborhoods_heading":"My Neighborhoods Of Expertise","neighborhoods_description":"","agent_neighborhoods":false,"hide_properties_section":false,"agent_properties_section_heading":"Featured Listings","agent_properties_section_description":"","use_default_settings_for_agent_listings":false,"disable_search_with_me":false,"testimonial_section_title":"What My Clients Say","testimonial_section_description":"","testimonials_data_source":"testimonials-cpt","testimonial_data":false,"enable_agent_press_section":false,"agent_primary_menu_id":"","agent_footer_menu_id":"","agent_custom_logo":false,"agent_featured_properties_settings":{"display_listings_in_tabs":false,"show_sales_tab":false,"show_sold_tab":false,"show_rentals_tab":false,"show_rented_tab":false,"show_commercial_sales_tab":false,"show_commercial_rental_tab":false,"listing_type":["residential_sales"],"listing_status":["active_all"],"limit":"10","must_have_photo":true,"min_bedrooms":"","min_bathrooms":"","min_price":"","show_only_my_properties":true,"office_ids":[{"office_id":"B61010"}],"ids":false,"sort_by":["listing_date_desc"],"backfill_properties_settings":{"agent_properties_count_less":"10","show_only_exclusive":false,"es_filter_properties_by_teams":false,"more_backfill_criteria":{"listing_type":["residential_sales"],"listing_status":["active_all"],"must_have_photo":true,"min_bedrooms":"","min_bathrooms":"","min_price":"","sort_by":["listing_date_desc"]}}},"title":""}
