About the Property…

Location. Style. Quality. Sophistication. Parking. Outdoor Space. Come see this fabulous, custom-designed Kassis Ventures 2018 build, in a private location just two blocks from Frankford and Girard. One of 6 homes built around a shared drive aisle with views of neighboring greenery, this is only the 3rd one to be publicly offered. Enter through a beautiful facade, designed by the architectural firm Onion Flats, into a welcoming entry area with a 6′ wide coat closet, and access to the garage, a powder room, and a pair of staircases. Up the stairs to the 2nd floor, you will be welcomed by a beautiful, light-filled open living/kitchen/dining area backed by views of neighboring greenery. The kitchen is truly special. Highlighted by a 10′ high wall of low luster white cabinetry framing deep blue ceramic subway tile, and anchored by Bosch appliances, the granite-topped kitchen island becomes a focal point with seating on two sides and a waterfall edge on one end. The island is flanked on one side by a dining area, and on the other end is a tri-fold wall that fully opens to a lovely deck with room for grilling, dining, or planting. The living area is anchored by a wall of sleek custom shelving with a central opening for a wide-screen monitor. The 10′ high ceilings create an additional sense of space and volume. The solid oak staircase with customized steel railings leads you to the 3rd floor where you will find two well-proportioned bedrooms with loft-style windows, customizable closets, and warm wide plank oak flooring that runs throughout the house. Also on this floor, you will find a full bath with a subway tiled tub and shower surround and a floating vanity, as well as an adjacent laundry station. The fourth floor offers a wonderful owners’ bedroom suite with a large central window opposite a spacious walk-in closet and a spa-inspired bathroom with a freestanding tub, backed by a wall of marble tile. In addition, there is a separate marble and glass shower stall with a clerestory window, and a double vanity floating over a hexagon marble tiled floor. One more flight up takes you to the pilothouse and the roof. With expansive Center City views, finished parapet walls, lighting, and a hose bib, it is ready for you to choose and install decking material over the long-wearing EPDM roofing material. Not to forget, this house comes with a finished basement featuring tiled floors, natural light, and an exposed structural steel beam. Additional storage can be found there as well as one of the two HVAC systems in the property. Given the quality of the design and integrity of the construction in this property, plus approximately 7 years left on the tax abatement, this home stands out among all the rest.
