REMARKS:

Rare opportunity to own a piece of history. One of the largest single family historic homes still remaining in Old City, this comfortable, charming, and spacious 3500+sf colonial home has been maintained and updated over time. Far larger and wider than your typical historic Old City home, there is plenty of room for modern living or today's live/work professional environments. 227 Race stands 18 feet wide at the street and spans 4 stories plus basement, with a deep lot allowing a lovely side and rear garden and sunny deck. First floor & basement were configured to run the owners' business and more recently used as home office, study, garden/mudroom & guest quarters. Basement is semi-finished, huge and full footprint with high ceilings, plenty of storage, and access to the street level. The 2nd thru 4th floors offer open living space rarely seen in historic homes. The sunny and wide open living and dining room boasts plenty of room for entertaining with dual fireplaces and a sunny deck overlooking the rear garden. Large, sunny, modern kitchen and breakfast room with cathedral ceilings complete the 2nd floor. Lovely 3rd floor master bedroom features fireplace and closets with backlit glass doors, and en suite bath with double vanity, linen closet, and decorative fireplace. Additional BR/bath on the 4th fl complete this home. Home has been lovingly cared for, and sellers are looking for the next stewards of this special home. The size, scale, and space create value and opportunities: Live here, work here, or adapt and design something exciting to suit your exact needs. Excellent location North of Market, steps from Old City shops, galleries, and cafes. Stellar access to all public transit, highways & airport for travel. Private parking available nearby.
