Reduced, Motivated Seller set up your showing and submit your offer today! Check out this huge, rarely offered Old Kensington corner property! It's currently a 5 bedroom, 2.5 bath 2,694 sq. ft. single family home with some very interesting history! In 1956 there was a Beer Distributor on the 1st floor, then in 1961 the 1st floor became a Barber Shop, and at some point in time it was a Bakery where the remnants of an original brick oven can be found in the basement! It's a Diamond in the rough surrounded by new construction on every block, where you have trendy restaurants and bars just steps away, everything you could possibly want within walking distance and located in the heart of one of the most popular neighborhoods in Philly! Some renovations were started but came to a halt due to Covid and now seller is forced to sell and relocate. Walk into the living room where the current eat in kitchen is located along with powder room, there is also a doorway that goes behind it into the former kitchen location that is still intact but needs renovation with exit/entrance to side yard. Then we get to the 2nd floor where you will find 4 bedrooms, one on each end of the house and two in the middle with a full 3 piece bathroom, then on to the 3rd floor master bedroom with another set of steps where you walk up to a loft style bedding arrangement, there is a walk in closet in the middle and a large updated bathroom with tub and shower featuring high end fixtures. The basement could also be finished into additional living space. Zoning is currently RSA-5, but with a variance there is a possibility of converting all this space into 2-3 apartments. The property is being sold as-is, owner will not make any repairs. Any building materials, furniture or debris not removed by closing will become the responsibility of the new owner.
