For sale: ‘Extreme Makeover’ home in Philadelphia

A home in Northeast Philadelphia that was famously renovated on the ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is on the market for $447,999.

A home in Northeast Philadelphia that was famously renovated on ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is on the market for $447,999.

The episode, which aired in April 2006, featured homeowners William and Carol Py. The couple was faced with all sorts of adversity: they were left to care for their three grandchildren after their parents died, and they also found out their house was contaminated with asbestos and lead.

The family went to Florida for a week while the "Extreme Makeover" crew took over. The show featured Philly native and builder Paul DiMeo, former Eagle Jeremiah Trotter and former Sixer Chris Webber. Wayne-based Dewey Companies also helped with renovating the home. Read more about the episode here.

The listing agent, Sabu Thomas of Long and Foster, said the Py family has since moved to Florida. The current sellers bought the home from the Py family in 2010.

The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home on Haldeman Avenue is about 2,700-square-feet. It features a Chef's kitchen and breakfast room with wood cabinetry and granite countertops, a living room with a grand cathedral ceiling, and two laundry rooms – one on each floor. The master suite has a Jacuzzi tub and walk-in closets, and the three additional bedrooms have Jack and Jill bathrooms.

Outside, the "Extreme Makeover" crew added in some luxurious finishes as well: an in-ground pool and a Tiki hut.

The home was first listed in April 2013, but has been on and of the market since. It has also gone through several price cuts, with the most recent one about two weeks ago. Thomas says the reason for price cuts is to "get more activity on the property."
