Americans have called Philadelphia's Society Hill neighborhood home since before the country's founding - and no wonder! The tree-lined streets and cobbled lanes evoke a quieter time, and this home is a rare gem in the neighborhood: accessibly sized, affordably priced, and thoughtfully preserved "The Little House" was built by carpenter John Piles c. 1771. Lovingly maintained, it was passed through the family by the matriarchs - a rarity! - for several generations. A thoughtful renovation in the 1960s preserved the home's character, including original yellow pine floors on the second and third floors and hand-painted tiles around both fireplaces. The owners also added modern conveniences such as central heat and air conditioning. More recently, the washer and dryer, stainless gas stove and oven, refrigerator, and hot water heater have been upgraded. The kitchen was refinished in 2020. The backyard is an urban oasis that includes a thriving raspberry bush and ample space for lounging, grilling, and entertaining. A second-floor balcony overlooks the garden and several adjoining backyards; there is no street access behind the home to fret about here! The large basement is a fresh canvas, ripe either for finishing as a rec room or use As-Is as a workshop. The entire third floor is a polished, professional work-from-home space with its own half bath and spacious walk-in closet, and it can easily double as a guest bedroom. A master suite, complete with his-and-hers closets and a working wood-burning fireplace, occupies the second floor, along with the master bath with a full-sized tub. The airy first floor is comprised of living and dining spaces, custom-crafted bookshelves, and additional closets, with double French doors opening onto the flagstone patio. Nearby, you'll enjoy the conveniences of city living: the local supermarket is 2 short blocks away, and every Sunday, local farmers offer their wares in Headhouse Square. Some of the country's finest restaurants are steps from the front door, while lively South Street and the rejuvenated Delaware River Waterfront are 5-minute walks away. Conveniently located near both bus and subway lines, with ample permitted street parking available to residents, this is a rare opportunity to take up residence in one of America's oldest and most desirable residential neighborhoods at a friendly price.
