Tucked away on a private lane bounded by land forever protected by a conservation easement and by Fairmount Park, residents of Foxx Lane enjoy the peaceful quiet seldom experienced by life in a great city. 3005 Foxx Lane sits on 1/3 green acre of the Lane. Built in 1962-63, it is a spacious two-story brick colonial style home that offers 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Special features include newly upgraded eat-in kitchen with quartz countertops, stainless steel sink, new gas cooktop, new double oven, stainless steel refrigerator/freezer, and new floor. All the baths have been fully renovated. The huge finished basement was re-done and has a bar with its own mini-refrigerator. There is a first floor powder room and a cozy first floor family room with wood-burning fireplace. The laundry is on the first floor, too. The master bedroom is over-sized and has a master bath. Each of the bedrooms invites lots of natural light. Gas heat and central air. Public water service and maintained private sewer system. 150 AMP electric circuit breaker service. The two-car garage has an electric door opener. Much of the lot is green and landscaped with mature trees and shrubs. The view from the broad lawn is of a neighboring area of forever open meadows protected by a conservation easement. The 11 homes on the Lane are informally bound by an association that tends to the common issues on the Lane: snow removal, care for any common landscaping, common electric for lighting along the Lane and care of the roadway. Owners pay $220 twice a year to cover these common costs and to maintain a capital fund. Located in the East Falls neighborhood, Foxx Lane sits across the street from the William Penn Charter School. The school is building a new baseball field east of the Lane that is expected to be complete and ready for games in 2019. High chain link fencing and protective canvas currently between the building site and the Lane is expected to be replaced by a green natural privacy border of trees and shrubs once the work is done. Jefferson University (formerly Philadelphia University) is just down the street. Center City is a ten minute drive away or accessed by nearby commuter rail and bus. Easy to get to major roadways--or to the natural recreation resources in Fairmount Park's Wissahickon Valley and on the Schuylkill River. Easy to show. Quick possession possible. This is a great property!
