240 N Ruby St


Totally turnkey, this solid-as-a-rock renovated house on a sweet little block would make a perfect first home or investment property. A neutral color palette creates the perfect canvas for a former renter to finally make a mark and let their personality shine without thinking about a security deposit. For the investor looking to build their portfolio, the generous bedroom size and great location close the El and 52nd St will attract plenty of renters. And everyone will appreciate that this is not just a quick cosmetic redo; this home was totally rewired and has all new mechanicals, plumbing and windows. While many will appreciate the all-electric setup and lack of a PGW bill, there is gas service should the next owner want to convert. The main floor is open and bright, with high ceilings, tall windows and plush carpet. Stick to the traditional layout with designated living and dining areas or use the entire area for hangout space and put some stools at the breakfast bar for more casual dining and entertaining. The kitchen features wood cabinets, oversize ceramic floor tiles, modern tile backsplash and room for a table. There’s a convenient main-floor laundry hookup, saving trips up and down the stairs and leaving the basement free for storage. Upstairs, the front bedroom is the clear master, with its pretty bay window and large closet, but the other two certainly are not lacking in space or storage. The nicely appointed hall bath has a sleek space-saving modern vanity, ceramic tile floors and tub surround and additional built-in shelves for linens. Located in the path of University City development, this property is a smart buy for investors and occupants alike.
