Town House

Built in 1920

Welcome to 962 North 5th Street. Currently set up as a duplex, this property holds a variance that would allow you two turn this into a triplex, or you can convert the entire building into a massive single family home!

Upon entering the front vestibule you are greeted by stunning 10' high double doors that define the grander of the owner's unit. Inside you first step into the 33-foot wide living room with 14' ceilings, crown molding, a decorative marble fireplace, large windows, and original wide plank floors. The formal dining room is flooded with light and anchored by another historic fireplace mantel. The kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, large custom cabinets, tiled countertops, a double sink, and subway tile backsplash, and steps into the private fenced patio, an oasis of perennials, shrubs, and a pear tree with plenty of space for outdoor entertaining.

Back inside, a staircase with a skylight leads to the owner's unit second level with two bedrooms and the main bathroom. Access an upstairs apartment via a private entrance at the end of the ground-level hallway and walk up the stunning staircase to a spacious 3-story rental unit, boasting a full kitchen, a large sunny living room with a decorative marble fireplace, and a full bathroom. On the second floor of the unit, you find an additional full bath, a bonus room that can be used as an office or a bedroom, and another formal family room that could also serve as a loft-style bedroom. On the fourth floor, you'll find two additional bedrooms with exposed brick accent walls and terrific views of the neighborhood and the Ben Franklin Bridge. The full basement includes a washer, dryer, and plenty of storage space. A rare duplex opportunity in Northern Liberties, this property allows for rental income in the upper-level 3-story apartment with the ability to convert it into 3 distinct units, or the home can serve as a classic 4-story single-family residence. In addition to easy access to I-95 and I-76, this property is just steps from the incredible restaurants, shopping, and entertainment Northern Liberties has to offer.
