About the Property…

Welcome to 503 Fairmount, the most exceptional property on the market in Northern Liberties. This home has been completely renovated with high-end finishes while maintaining original architectural features and character. Consider this early 19th Century historic home renovated in 2014, with subsequent upgrades including a gourmet kitchen with wood-burning brick oven; finished basement including a powder room, home theater, and a wine cellar; and a beautifully landscaped patio. There is no house in Northern Liberties that can compare. Featuring 4 bedrooms (one currently used as an office) and 3.5 baths, the volume of indoor and outdoor space will have you mesmerized. When you enter, the 12′ high ceilings and natural light will immediately welcome you as you take notice of two of the four original fireplace mantles, these being carved from King of Prussia marble, a quarry which is no longer in existence. The pair of fireplaces provide elegance and distinction to the living and dining areas. Follow the original wide board pine floors that run throughout the house to your custom chef’s kitchen showcasing Wolf and Subzero appliances, granite countertops, and a wood-burning pizza oven purchased directly from Italy. The view from the kitchen is absolutely breathtaking as you overlook your outdoor oasis on the composite and brick patio which includes an outdoor kitchen with a tandoor oven, 2nd refrigerator, and custom grill. The outdoor dining area is covered with a pergola for summer shade and privacy and the garden area is walled in historic brick. Just off the kitchen, the elegant staircase leads you to the owner’s bedroom with an ensuite bath, custom built-in closets as well as a walk-in closet, and 10′ high ceilings. On the same floor is a hall bath with a tiled shower and the 2nd bedroom, which would also make for a great office or den. The third floor features a large 3rd bedroom, a laundry room, and a spacious bath. The fourth floor houses the 4th bedroom under the eaves with north and south-facing dormers and a utility closet with one of two HVAC systems. After dinner, an unassuming staircase leads you down to your retreat: a state of the art 10 seat home movie theater complete with 9 channel in-wall digital sound. If you’re not in the mood for a film, you can spend the evening in your 600 bottle wine cellar complete with dual-zone wine refrigerator and highlights of the home’s original architecture. This renovation was designed by an architect and an interior designer. One year of pre-paid parking, located just a short stroll away, is included in the purchase price of this extraordinary home. This home is a rare exception in a market filled with ordinary interiors. Make your appointment today.
