Rumors say this circa 1892 Mansion was built for a co-founder of Merke Pharmaceuticals, at a cost 10x the average nearby home. It is gorgeous! If you want big, bright and brilliantly located, this is the place to choose. Rare and desirable are the corner location, with fenced Front, Side and Rear Gardens and the possibility of “Curb-cut” and Parking for several cars in the back. (Or enjoy easy parking on the street and keep a huge yard.) Highlights: Natural Energy Savings (Shade Trees, New Windows with Screens, High Ceilings, Steam Heat, Attic, Vestibule & Mudroom); Stunning Woodwork; Leaded Glass in Dining Room Bay, multi-pane windows to Porch; 5 rooms + Powder Room and Coat Closet on First Floor; 4 major rooms and 2 full Bathrooms on the Second floor; 3 additional rooms and full bathroom on the Third; Located inside the coveted PENN-Alexander-K-9 School CATCHMENT. The Free-PENN-Bus stops at the corner and Public trans is nearby. Too many delights to describe, ask for links to many more photos and to the “history” of the home and block. The price is negotiable, subject to credits for additional improvements.
