Description

A once in a life time opportunity to purchase an architecturally significant town home comprised of two joined corner residences nestled into a storybook setting in the heart of Washington Square West. This home on a picturesque Olde Philadelphia cobblestone street with colorful flags waving in the breeze is actually two homes (243 S Quince St + 222 S Jessup St), connected via the kitchen and garden perfectly situated on Quince, Irving and Jessup streets. 1-CAR PARKING located at a small surface parking lot steps from the home at Jessup and Locust Street is included in this sale. This is a rare opportunity to own an historic, traditional 3+ bedroom home with multiple outdoor spaces combined with a "dollhouse" with its own separate entrance which could serve perfectly for work from home, guests, in-laws or a dream library/den, art or painting studio, spacious additional dining or entertaining space or a 4th bedroom. The home exudes style and charm both inside and out. Admire the authentic brick exterior with classic shutters and an arched wooden gate on Irving Street to enter the garden. Enter the main entrance on Quince St to a spacious and open living/dining room with Schuylkill River pine floors, high ceilings, wrap-around windows showering the space in great natural light, exposed beams and a fireplace. Ample 15' width and a deep home easily accommodates a full dining room table and chairs. Organized kitchen with plenty of storage and cabinetry + skylight overlooks a beautiful garden entered via double sliding glass doors spanning the width of the kitchen. The kitchen and a side garden provide a seamless and architecturally harmonious connection between the traditional home and the "the dollhouse," a 2-story home with basement + full bathroom currently being used as an office and a den. The top floor of 222 Jessup Street has soaring ceiling to the peak of the terra cotta tiled gable roof that creates an inspiring space with great scale and proportions. Beautiful features in this breathtaking room abound: high ceilings with angled exposed beams, a Rose window like those found in historic churches, two sets of a balcony level, romantic French doors opening to wrought iron balconies and a cozy fireplace with original mantel and handsome original tile mosaic. On the second floor of 243 S Quince St, you will find 2 bedrooms and one full bath with shower/tub enclosure and pretty stone finishes. The front bedroom is spacious with a band of three large windows overlooking the tree tops of Quince Street, a fireplace and closets. The back bedroom has access to a deck and a Juliet balcony. Plenty of thoughtful storage spaces throughout and two basements for extensive storage plus mechanicals. The top floor is the primary suite and includes a half bathroom. A grand and glorious space with the most incredible views of Quince, Irving and Jessup Streets from above. This home is need of renovation, but has the "great bones," dreamy curb appeal, location, size, hard to find work from home configuration + parking rarely found in this sought after location. Located in the coveted McCall School Catchment. A destination neighborhood - with "Best of Philly" and off the beaten path BYO restaurants and shopping - 243 Quince Street is also strategically positioned close to Jefferson and Pennsylvania Hospital, Avenue of the Arts and walkable to other popular neighborhoods like Midtown Village, Society Hill, the Italian Market, Queen Village, Rittenhouse Square, Society Hill and Old City. A well cherished and striking home is waiting for a new Philadelphian to take over its stewardship. A must see!
