Are you ready for the ultimate Philly living experience?  This enormous, historic row home, built in 1915, is a one-of-a-kind opportunity.  It's nestled in between the Italian Market and Passyunk Square on a tree-lined street across from Capitolo Playground, a 4-acre park with sports courts, fields, and a community garden. The great room and 2 of the 5 bedrooms have flowering-tree-framed views of the gardens and the baseball games. Life on this special block appeals to the individual seeking excitement from an urban lifestyle while offering the respite of private, serene living This 3-story home offers historic charm inside and out. Starting with the handsome brick facade embellished with ornamental iron grates, shutters, and solid marble steps. The beautiful original details are notable throughout. The home has been rented for about a decade. It's liveable, and fully financeable but ready to be resurrected by your upgrades and personal touches.  Because this home features a flexible layout with 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths, it also offers the potential to create 3 primary suites with private living spaces for each! This is a perfect home for multi-generational families, entertaining overnight guests, adopting an exchange student, or stretching out comfortably throughout 3000+ SF! Upon entering into a stately vestibule with a penny tile floor, you’ll start touring the living room to the right or continue on up the curving staircase.  Take note of the  9+ foot ceilings, original plaster moldings, 2 vintage marble fireplace mantles, and a stained glass archway.  Through what was probably once a formal parlor, enter what could be a library, breakfast room, or dining room. Pass through an exit double glass doors to the side yard or continue on to an extensive eat-in kitchen. With the right vision, this windowed space could be an incredible modern kitchen with an island, pantry, and breakfast nook that, with the right weather, can bring your outdoor dining dreams to life. The entertaining enthusiasts can thrive in the private, sun-filled, rear patio right off the kitchen. There are dorothy doors to the basement in case you enjoy a potting bench to service your container garden. There is also an alley that accesses the street so you can take your bikes and bins in and out from the back of the home to the street. The second and third floors of this home have a Split Level feel. Toward the street, the first owner's suite has a large En-Suite bathroom with extra closets and a soaking tub. Towards the garden end of the home, the suite has a bedroom that has been used as a den, laundry facilities, and a 3-piece bath. The third floor has a similar Split Level where there are two bedrooms to the garden side of the home and a bedroom with an En-Suite bathroom toward the street side of the home. While there has been a lot of upgrades in the past, like new windows, and a dual zoned high-velocity central air system, this home can use some upgrading. What you're buying is square footage and location, location, location. In this location, there's no way to pick just one favorite activity. Just steps away you'll find yourself on "Cheesesteak Corner" at Philly's iconic Pat and Geno's rivalry cheesesteaks.  Unless maybe your favorite is meeting your friends -spur of the moment- at neighborhood bars like POPE, BIrra, and Stogie Joe's because they're always in the area whether they live nearby or not.  Maybe you're into grabbing dinner at innovative restaurants like Barcelona, Fond, and Stateside. You can do that too. Every night. On Foot. From restaurants and coffee shops to wonderful community events and block parties, you'll find this block right in the middle of it all!  This home brings the convenience you are looking for, an absolute heart of a location and an opportunity to customize solid bones and unique well preserved historic details to your taste. Are you ready? This
