    Property Details

    1712 S 5th Street is a great investment opportunity and is ready for renovation to blend its historic charm with modern updates. This spacious corner duplex with two 1BR units would also convert well into a wonderful single family home. Featuring a long south facing exposure, this property offers so much: great natural light through numerous windows, the original staircase, original floors, some original doors, a fabulous built in armoire, wainscotting in one of the bathrooms, and a nice sized patio. Entering the building lands you in a foyer with two doors leading to each respective unit. Stepping into the first floor unit you will find a living room with high ceilings, original wood floors, exposed brick, and windows on two walls. Beyond the living room is a spacious kitchen with plenty of room for cabinetry, appliances, and a table and chairs. Off the kitchen is a door to the basement that can provide access to laundry and plenty of storage space. Just past the kitchen is a good size bedroom with an original closet, an ensuite bathroom, and a door to the patio where you will find plenty of space for grilling and outdoor dining. Up the stairs to the 2nd floor unit you will find a large living and dining area with original wood floors, a good sized bathroom, a kitchen with a lovely bay window, and a large bedroom with the original armoire. The second floor unit also has basement access from the first floor hallway. As property values in Dickinson Narrows continue to rise due to the influences of East Passyunk to the west and Pennsport to the east, now is the time to take advantage of this affordably priced property and position yourself for years of rising income and appreciation.
