School District: The School District Of Philadelphia
Address: 6115 ELLSWORTH ST
Neighborhood: Cobbs Creek
Cobbs Creek has few blocks as well positioned, situated and laid out as this tree lined collection of semi detached twin homes on a wide street. A deep breath and a relaxation of the shoulders is almost automatic, as we approach the home. Pleasant. Calm. The homes, 4BR twins, with enclosed glass porchfront, are perched on a small hills overlooking the road like horned rimmed spectacles. Approaching 6115, we can see that the realities of time, and maintenance, have stripped much of the granduer away, but the beauty of the facade seeps through its current state. This home is not for everyone. It will require vision. It will require an appreciation of character. It calls for restoration, care and attention, that when given, will yeild a masterpiece for the next generation. Parquet floors with inlays underfoot throughout. Step in through the french paned glass of the enclosed porch and be greeted by a spacious living room with hearth and mantle, as well as custom wall trim. To the left and original stained glass decorative window panel. The sense of space and character is evident. The home is one of the precious few in the neighborhood with an extended porch built over the attached garage. There is a second set of stairs leading from the kitchen to the second level, which contains four bedrooms. Home has gas heating and cooking.For those with a good restoration budget, and a long term horizon, this could be a special place. Location is a convenient drive to Universities and Airport, as well as Laura Sims skatehouse, and shopping centers. Cobbs Creek Park is footsteps away!
