    Description

    Remarkable 1889 stone detached home. Designed by Wilson Eyre and built in 1889. On both National and Philadelphia Registers of Historic Properties: "3-story rubble schist and shingle dwelling". Built in the shingle style with gambrel roof, it is a unique architectural design. Called the "Sally Watson House". This property is a diamond in the rough just waiting for someone to have a most exquisite home. It needs work; it needs updating. For many years, it was used as a child-care center and afterward it was used as an emergency shelter for small children in need. It has been vacant for a while. Its interior reflects hard use. For instance the kitchen was converted to a more commercial model. At the same time, almost all its stunning interior architectural detail remains: wood flooring (some now protected by carpet, 5 fireplaces (none used in many years) with handsome mantels, original windows straight out of the Arts & Crafts movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, an extraordinary stair landing between the 1st and 2nd floors. Powder room on 1st floor. Full bath on 2nd floor. 3rd floor not used in many years and could be a useful attic. If 3rd floor is to be used as living space, it needs complete renovation. Basement is full, unfinished for utilities, work space, storage and laundry. 3-zoned gas hot water boiler. 200 AMP electric circuit breaker panel. Property has a small lot for parking, otherwise surrounded by green. Front walkway is currently shared by day care center at rear of 5114 Wayne Avenue. Seller is a non-profit corporation. Any offers require at least 5 days for response. Full property inspection report is posted on the MLS listing along with limited Seller Disclosure. This property is to be conveyed "as-is". Seller will not do any repairs. Prospective buyers are encouraged to conduct their own property inspection if they so desire.
