This brickfront row home on Benkard looks like it has good bones from the outside and, the original blue stone sidewalk is something that adds to the historical character. As you can see in the photo, the home is large and extends pretty far in the rear. The listing says that there are 3 rented apartments in the home. On this blog we promote homeowners actually live in their homes, as these homes were never made for so many tenants. Also, homeowners take more pride in their residences and thus, usually maintain them better.
Just a few steps away at the corner is Simple Gifts and Goodies. This shop really is an anchor at the end of this block and hopefully other businesses can flourish with it. The Liberty Street School is also around the corner, yet it’s future is yet to be determined. You would also be walking distance to Washington Headquarters and all of the lovely shops that surround it.
