Homeownership in West Philly may seem out of reach, but this super-solid West Shore home changes the game. Not fancy but not at all a fixer, this home is move-in ready with room to build equity. With a doable monthly payment, there’s no need to sacrifice all your must-haves—just add them yourself over time. This home gets you started with nice original details like gleaming pine floors throughout most of the space and a decorative slate mantel in the living room; great natural light; an open floorplan; and of course the West Philly location. The dated-but-perfectly-functional kitchen and bathrooms can be customized after getting a feel for life in your new home. There’s a rear main-floor suite with a full bathroom, and two more sunny bedrooms upstairs with large windows and hardwood floors. The upstairs hall bath works a retro yellow vibe; lean in with some fun wallpaper and updated fixtures or get the design boards ready for a full redo. The basement is available for storage and laundry, and with good ceiling height could double as home workshop. This right-size house is just off the Woodland Ave strip, with local faves Four Worlds Bakery, Little Delicious and the Lil’ Pop Test Kitchen & Bakery and the 36 and 11 trolley lines around the corner, and outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy the Grays Ferry Crescent Trail Park and Bartram’s Garden nearby.
