Spruce Hill. Penn Alexander School Catchment. We wish we could live on the 4200 Block of Osage, yet it is rare that an opportunity to buy one of these historic homes on block lined with mature London Plane trees becomes available. Nicknamed "Little Osage" the neighbors on this small avenue have a porch based sense of community and fun, epitomized by the truly epic annual Halloween Block party, which is basically famous in these parts. Built in 1913, the stately pedigree of Victorian architectural characteristics in this 5 Bedroom 2 bath home have been blended with elements of modern living such as upgraded kitchens, bathrooms , south facing rooftop deck, and rear garden with semi permiable pavers. Original elements such as high ceilings, decorative crown and baseboard moldings, beautiful leaded glass, hardwood floors with inlaid detail, mantles, large living room pocket door, and unpainted doors and wood trim throughout, and panelled vestibule entry are warmly charming. Contemporary features include a whole home water filtration system, electric vehicle charging port, Nest Thermostat, 200 Amp electric and updated electric with Central air, give the comforts we have come to expect today. And other practical concerns such as an insulated attic, and full sized clean basement with ample storage is available. The basement can be imagined a space for playroom, home gym, or theater space. Bring your imagination. One additional benefit is that 4200 Osage is a street that really only runs one block, so car traffic is relatively light. One block from Clark Park and its fabulous Farmers' Market, Clarkville, and Green Line Cafe. Easy walk to nearby campuses, Baltimore Avenue's Restaurant Row, Cafe Renata, Penn Alexander Catchment School, Honest Tom's, Local 44 and the Bottle Shop, Pop Shop, coffee shops, restaurants, and shopping. Close to HUP, CHOP, Penn, Drexel, University of the Sciences. Center city is 15 minute trolley ride away. Come visit this fantastic offering.
