Yes, 15 minutes or so by bike from the southern end of Newbold near The Tap Room, but the other advantage of Newbold is you have easy access to the Broad Street line. It's one train to City Hall and a short walk from there, which on wet days can be a nice option. I work with both investors and first time home buyers in Newbold. I have a really great full rehab coming on the market later this spring that is preserving original elements like wood flooring, plaster walls, yet renovating with a modern aesthetic, i.e. concrete counters, white appliances, contemporary lighting etc. If you need assistance buying a home, feel free to contact me.
