A Country Estate in the City - ready for new enthusiastic owners to continue wardship of this well worn mansion! Once a summer home for wealthy Quaker merchants, this home came to represent a prime example of the late 1800~s affluence, when Philadelphia was the financial capital of North America. The size and sheer volume of the rooms are exceedingly generous. Beautiful grounds wrap around the home, creating a true park-like setting. Wandering in the backyard or sitting on the side porch, it is hard to imagine being 15-20 minutes away from Center City. This may read like the description typical of a large detached home~s 1st floor: Foyer, Living & Dining Rooms, Kitchen & Family Room, even a ~Library~ room & Pantry; but come inside and feel the difference that 12 foot ceilings make in a 600+ sq ft Living Room. Note the detailed workmanship; the pocket doors, the curved bay windows, the picture rails. While most older homes have their quirkiness - areas where the floor dips and slants - this large structure stands nearly plumb level; its solid banisters reminiscent of luxury steamships, supported by not just one style of spindle, but three! Easily climbing the port wine stairs past the leaded glass windows of the first landing, a room-size hallway grants access to three bedroom suites (bed and bath) and more! The back stairs continue from the 1st to 4th floors. The 3rd and 4th floor is set up as one or even two apartments: a 5-Bedroom, 2-Bathroom apartment or a 3-Bedroom apartment and a 2-Bedroom apartment. There is zoning already in place for a two family dwelling. The basement is large and viable for storage. A list of interesting features include 3 decorative fireplaces, several walk-in closets (including one fully lined cedar closet), three large wall pantries, 2 classic Victorian curved bays, 2nd and 3rd floor laundry facilities, a round operable ship~s window, granite counters, Bathroom double vanity, 7 ceiling fans, built-in bookcases and window seats, chair rails, 10-foot high Bedroom ceilings, exposed brick wall, automatic garage openers and more! Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and live in elegance when you purchase this incredible property.

A TRULY REMARKABLE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A CHUNK OF HISTORY. Formerly known as Shoemaker's Lane, East Penn Street was one of the early cross streets of Germantown opened sometime before 1693. The home was known as the Mifflin-Cope House, originally built for Lloyd Mifflin by Addison Hutton who had a strong influence on the historical, architectural, economic, social, and cultural development of the City of Philadelphia. Now known as The Waring House, the home is a fine example of early Victorian architecture within the city limits, creating a unique opportunity that is rarely offered. Over 8500 interior sqft, sitting on a half an acre, and awaiting your imagination and personal touches. Off street driveway parking with a detached garage. The property (8,500 sq/ft) comes with the land (over 21,000 sq/ft in total) to the left and right. Plenty of space to add more housing and parking. Colorful Germantown block loaded with trees and close to everything the neighbourhood has to offer.
This is a triplex (plus efficiency) on a beautiful street in Germantown. The house needs some plumbing to be replaced but the upside potential is huge.
