SoPhilly Spotlight: Civil War edition

In honor of the 150 year anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, we bring a SoPhilly Spotlight that was built the same year as Honest Abe gave that speech, 1863.

127 League

Tucked away on a tiny Queen Village street right around the corner from the Shot Tower playground, 127 League St. is a 3-bed, 2-bath charmer going for $319,900. It has just under 1,200 square feet.

From the listing by Spectrum Realty:

Charming brick facade and wooden cornice,marble steps,most of the original molding as well as lovely wide plank pine flooring. Enter into foyer, through to living room with wood fireplace mantle, dining room, ceilings are 9″ tall.

As is often the case in historic structures, some of the spaces are a bit cramped, and this kitchen might have a little too much history for some tastes.

127 League3

Eat in kitchen with cabinets and ample counter space and an antique cupboard for additional storage. Rear Patio for dining or relaxing.

It’s listed on the Philadelphia Historic Register. Does that mean you need permission to renovate something like a kitchen?

Second floor houses the Master bedroom with two closets, Ceramic tile hall bath, smaller bedroom and nice size rear bedroom with closet. Basement used for storage and mechanicals, good ceiling height. House shows well and has been freshly painted, lots of original charm in this very pleasing home.

127 League7
This seems to be a built-in in one of the bedrooms, but man, that’s a blurry picture.

Those floor boards probably have a lot of stories to tell. OK, now we're going overboard.
