1345 N Howard St

NO SHOWINGS ALLOWED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Welcome to 1345 N. Howard Street. Here is your opportunity to purchase an exceptionally unique street-to-street property with a detached 2 car garage. This 3 bedroom, 2 full bath home sits on a quiet neighborhood street, yet only a block from all the action in Fishtown. This architecturally intact 1920's federal style home has great bones and has been well cared for over the years. You'll need to make some renovations to make this home your perfect house but once done, you'll have an amazing home with private courtyard, and best of all, a recently renovated 2 car garage. This home retains all of its original charm and character with intact brick front, granite steps and accents, a marble foyer, marble mantel piece in the living room, high ceilings, original banisters and hardwood on the uppers floors. The first floor consists of a living room, full bathroom, dining room, and kitchen. The kitchen is large and offers access to both basement and backyard. The basement is clean, dry, and has a new high efficiency Williamson Boiler, newer hot water heater and washer and dryer. Venture upstairs and straight ahead is a large bedroom, currently configured as a second kitchen but can easily be turned back into very large bedroom. There is also full bathroom with sunken tub and shower stall, and another bedroom in the front of the house. The third floor is one very large room with hardwood floors and at the top of the stairs was a door with access to the roof (ideal for a roof deck or an addition). It has since been drywalled but door and access is still there. There is a courtyard in between the house with rear door entry to the detached garage. A secured private alleyway leads from the yard to Howard St for easy access, making this a perfect private area to enjoy outside living in the city. The large 20 foot wide 2-car garage faces Hope St, has a new door, new electric opener, new lighting & electricity, and new cement floors. Located in Olde Kensington, it is just west of Front St and just north of Girard, you are literally a stone's throw to Fishtown and less than 2 blocks to Northern Liberties. The best of these two great neighborhoods is at your fingertips. The home is right around the corner from the now famous Pizzeria Beddia, Front Street Cafe, Good Spoon, Wm Mulherin's Sons, La Colombe, Suraya, and City Fitness. Head a few blocks the other direction and you have ReAnimator Coffee, New Liberty Distillery, Original 13 Ciderworks, Acme Supermarket, and the Crane Arts Building with endless events. There are also multiple places to catch live music within blocks, The El Bar, Johnny Brenda's, and Kung Fu Necktie, to name a few. There is also quick access to I-95 and public transportation (just two short blocks to the Girard Ave El Station). With the right vision this could be just the home you have been looking for. Don't let this one get away. Make your appointment today! Please note that online value estimates for this property do not take into account that this was actually two separate properties consolidated on a single deed (1345 N. Howard St. and 1348 Hope St.) the spacious two car garage being on the latter, with the land between the home and rear of the garage creating the enclosed private yard. Don't miss this incredibly rare opportunity.
