INVESTOR SPECIAL! If you're looking for a turn-key, cash flowing investment that is almost FULLY leased (all but one bedroom in the top unit), and in the HEART of University City, look no further! This recently renovated and well maintained duplex is absolutely perfect for an investor looking for consistent occupancy within their units. Unit 1 consists of two bedrooms and 1 full bathroom with access to a private, back patio and the full, unfinished basement. Unit 2 consists of SIX bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The seller has just replaced the ovens in both units; all other appliances are fairly new as well. Currently the Landlord pays for all utilities and provides all furniture, and the rental amounts are lower than they should be. There is plenty of room to increase the rents and have the tenants pay for the utilities.

High ceilings and original character throughout. Dining room. Big, modern kitchen with French doors to a nice patio and yard. Half bath on the 1st floor. 2nd floor has 11' ceilings, the same beautiful random width hardwood floors, and 3 large bedrooms, one full tile bath. Beautiful moldings.

The original character continues. Just beautiful. Both units have private entrances and are separately metered for electric (heat and water are common). Though split into two fully distinct residences, they do connect through an interior doorway (which is kept locked), so with minimal effort, the building could be used as a 6 bedroom plus family room, 2.5 bath home with 2-zone central air. Excellent location on a wonderful tree-lined street in Powelton Village. Powel School Catchment. Close to Drexel University and all that University City and Center City have to offer.
