The basement offers a finished and carpeted family/play room, equipped with an updated powder room. Additionally there is a separate laundry area, with an outdoor exit.  Other benefits front porch with roof, detached one-garage, backyard w/ both grass & patio areas, and much more.  This home also is in the footprint for Aronimink Elementary School; one of Upper Darby School Districts highest rated elementary schools.

So we know the house looks great.  You can bring your things and just move right in.  But what’s the neighborhood like?  This home grades higher than the average Drexel Hill in regards to walkability.  This is driven by the close proximity to the former Waverley Theater, which many consider the traditional downtown area of Drexel Hill.

There are several local dining options, just a few steps away.  For delicious, Italian specialties stop by Pagano’s on Township Line.  You can buy your Sunday dinner groceries here, or walkout with a classic Italian sandwich.  One of of my favorite local bar and restaurants is a short drive, 2312 Garrett.  A wonderful, city styled gastropub here in Drexel Hill.  Great menu options.  Great beer selections.  Great atmosphere.

Nightlife options include JD McGillicuddy’s in the aforementioned Waverly Theater.  A great place for live music and drink specials.  For a quieter nightlife option you can try Trophy Tavern and catch whichever game is on the TV.

There’s a few shopping options as well.  The Yard Sale offers something old and something in regards to home goods.  And for all you comic lovers, stop by Effin Comics on Burmont & Garrett.
