About the Property…

Loft living doesn’t get better than this in Philadelphia. Come see this expansive 1400 square foot former industrial space featuring floor to ceiling windows with east and west exposures, exposed brick walls, refinished original wood floors, exposed timber columns and beams, and 13′ wide plank pine ceilings in a 15 unit boutique building on a great block in Fishtown. Enter the secure lobby off of Shackamaxon Street and take the steps to this top floor unit, or if you have much to carry, use the fabulous wooden elevator still in use from the days when the Morse Elevator Works manufactured elevators in this 3 story corner property. Entering the unit you will be welcomed by a voluminous living area with massive west facing windows offering fabulous afternoon light. The options for creating multiple seating and work areas are endless in this generous space. Opposite the windows is a reclaimed industrial door hung on a roller track that gives access to a recently updated Scandanavian inspired full bath with pine flooring and ceiling, white subway tile bath and shower surround, white painted cabinetry, and black hardware. Off the living area, in the center of the loft, is a dining area with room for a dinner party for 12, which opens up to a large kitchen with extensive white cabinetry, a peninsula counter with seating for two and storage on both sides, granite countertops and a pantry/closet for additional storage for food storage and cleaning supplies. Beyond the kitchen is a very spacious bedroom with two tall east facing windows offering wonderful morning light. There is good closet space in the bedroom, a second closet off the connecting hall, and a stacking washer and dryer adjacent to the kitchen. Additional storage in a communal area for all the tenants is on the first floor and is great for storing larger items like surfboards, bicycles, and a motorcycle or two. Along with all these features offering fabulous loft living, the unit comes with roof rights for you to invest in a staircase, opening skylight or pilot house, and a private roof deck which would make it just one of four roof decks on the expansive roof. Just two blocks from Frankford Avenue, one block from Girard Avenue, and three blocks from the train to Center City, all of the amenities of great urban living are just minutes away. If you are looking for style, sophistication, character, light, and the simplicity and security of one floor loft living, look no farther: this is the property for you.
