Famed American writer Charles Bukowski is revered by a great deal of of us for the writing he did whereas he lived in Los Angeles, nevertheless in the mid-1940s he lived in Philadelphia. He reportedly frolicked consuming (and serving to out, nevertheless primarily consuming) at 17th Spot, a nook bar in Fairmount.
The bar allegedly was the inspiration for the Golden Horn, the bar in the 1987 film “Barfly.”
Now, a publish detailing the property says, the true 17th Spot is gone, nevertheless the current iteration was in-built 1968 and renovated in 2001. That type of counts.
And the property, which at the second properties a bar often known as Mr. Jay’s Place at 1700 Fairmount Ave., is once once more on the market after listings in 2010 and 2012.
An stock posted earlier this week by Atacan Group of Keller Williams Realty locations the worth at $900,000, with licenses for an extra $300,000, which Atacan says ought to be purchased with the setting up.
(The genuine 17th Spot appeared like a fairly nondescript joint; now it’s solely a half-block from a spot often known as Bar Hygge. It’s decidedly not Bukowski’s Fairmount anymore.)
The first flooring of the property incorporates the bar, a pool desk area, two loos, and an enclosed outdoors seating area. The second flooring has one different bar, a seating area, and two loos. The third flooring is an 800-square-foot, one-bed/one-bath residence.
The setting up itself has a reasonably handsome crimson brick-and-cream trim look going on, as you’ll see above.
If you’re huge into well-known writers (I’ve not study Bukowski, nevertheless maybe now I am going to!) and you have more than $1 million sitting spherical, proper right here’s your chance to indicate a landmark into one factor new.
