And yet there’s still more room to grow with a full unfinished basement and a large detached garage.

So the house looks great.  But you don’t just buy for the house.  Neighborhood is just as important.  At this location you’re a little less than a mile from what’s traditionally considered the Drexel Hill town center at the intersection of Burmont Rd and Drexel & Woodland Avenues.  But you’re also close to business districts at State Rd & Lansdowne Ave, Burmont Rd & Township Line, and Burmont & Garrett Roads.

Walk Score gives us the head up that we’re in a more car dependent neighborhood, but that’s not something we didn’t know.   Still, there’s some strong walking options within a mile radius.

A pizza from Pizza Odyssey is just forty steps away from your front door.  That sounds like the best idea ever.

Looking for a late night refreshment?  You can walk over to J.D. McGillicuddy’s on Wednesday nights for a cold drink and a round of quizzo.  Want an IPA or a microbrew?  Check out 2312 Garrett.  They have plenty of options and a great atmosphere.

Like boutique style consignment shops?  Well check out The Yard Sale right down the street.  You won’t leave empty handed, especially if you like vinyl records and repurposed furniture.   And for the fanboys out there check out Effin Comics.  Stock up on some Hero Clix and let’s see if they’ll host a tourney.

Don’t miss and opportunity to own a classic home in a great neighborhood.
