POTENTIAL PLUS! SAVVY INVESTOR WANTED! Fixer-upper alert! Invest in your future! Check out this "AS-IS",corner,3-story home with detached garage and start calculating how your imagination can turn it into a whole new space. LOW TAXES for such a good-sized home. There's already a lot of love in this home, from the owners who raised a great family here, but they cannot keep up with it now, and it needs someone else to take over and fix it up. Convenient location. Bus lines and neighborhood shops close-by. Lansdowne has TWO train stations as well--12 minutes to Center City! Lansdowne has been named a "CLASSIC TOWN". Main Street Lansdowne Ave shop owners and residents are gearing up in anticipation for the re-opening of the Lansdowne Theater in the next couple of years. It has served as a back drop for numerous films over the years, including "Silver Linings Playbook", and was featured this past February on NBC's Today Show. You can park 2 cars on the driveway. There is parking on the side street as well. The front of the house is surrounded by a vinyl fence that needs a few pieces replaced to give it good curb appeal.In the living room is a ventless gas fireplace (condition not known) with tile hearth and wooden mantle. Lots of sun streams in here. A wide arch at the LR / DR opens to Dining Room space and there is a French door to the unheated, enclosed porch with lots of windows. Notice the good-sized breakfast room here for informal meals. The "work " part of the kitchen holds an Amana fridge, a gas stove, oak cabinetry, a corner stainless sink an a small freezer. The DW does not work. The laundry is also here on the 1st floor. An exit door leads to the back of the house. There are 4 rooms on the 2nd floor. Three of the bedrooms are heated. One is not. in the hall is a full bath on this level too. On the 3rd floor you'll find three more rooms. One of them does not have heat. So.... in total , there are 7 rooms that could be bedrooms... or configure their use as you see fit. Most of the flooring is hardwood or pine. The exterior is sided, and the foundation is stone. The windows are capped. The chimney is brick. The unfinished basement has a sump pump and French drain. The Bradford White defender hot water heater is +/- 3 years young. The Weil Mc Lain heater is gas fired. It was just recently serviced. It exhausts out the foundation wall. The roof was installed in 2006. THE SELLER CAN DO NO REPAIRS. The buyer is responsible for the Use and Occupancy Resale Cert and any repairs called for by the Boro. Come see what you can do to turn this home into an updated place with space! The wonderful owners will be excited to see the transformation!
