$560,000 839 S Hancock STREET, Philadelphia, PA 19147
Built in 1831 and updated with modern amenities, here is an opportunity to own a beautiful piece of Philadelphia history in Queen Village. This home reflects all of the charm and character that goes with a neighborhood so steeped in cultural history. The tucked away location, with a walk score of 89, is even more special considering that it is located in the Meredith School Catchment.

The 2nd floor has a bright and cheery bedroom with a Murphy bed and an updated bathroom with a double sink vanity, exposed brick accent wall, tub with subway tile and two closets. The larger closet has a washer and dryer hook if you want to make this the new laundry area. The entire 3rd floor is the primary suite and feels like a private retreat. The bedroom is beautifully designed with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, a barn door and another gorgeous brick fireplace. The bathroom is spa-like with heated floors and a shower with marble accent tile and a rain shower and handheld shower fixture. The bathroom also has a marble top, double sink vanity with a subway tile accent wall, a Toto toilet, solar tubes for additional light and leads to the custom walk-in closet. This home has 3 separate outdoor spaces: the covered balcony off of the primary suite, the side alley and a large deck with maintenance free Nexan decking with LED ambient lighting. This deck is situated in the treetops and perfect for outdoor entertaining. The basement has high ceilings, a laundry area and offers plenty of storage.

The garden across the street has been maintained by the neighbor for close to 30 years. Great location!
