About the Property…

Enter into this light-filled, tastefully designed, modern home with an open floor plan that flows effortlessly from the wide entrance foyer, along the welcoming kitchen island, into the living/dining area, and to the extraordinary patio beyond. This spacious 18′ wide lot offers a double-height living area with floor to ceiling windows maximizing light and space. The generous layout allows for creativity and versatility and is a showcase for art and furniture. The beautifully designed kitchen with high-quality appliances and a generous island is perfect for functionality and entertainment. Off the kitchen, there is a well-placed powder room at the top of the stairs to the basement. Down the stairs, the tastefully finished basement is perfect for a media room, gym, playroom, or studio while still offering plenty of storage space, a laundry room, and a whole house water filtration system. At the top of the floating staircase to the 2nd floor is a second living area that overlooks the first-floor living space and the patio. This seating area features a gas fireplace and offers the flexibility to be a gathering place, study, or office. Sharing the 2nd floor is one of 3 bedrooms with ensuite baths. This room is adjacent to a small terrace that is also accessible from the hall. The 3rd floor features a spacious owner’s bedroom highlighted by a wall of glass opening to a private terrace, a walk-in closet, and an ensuite bathroom with Carrera marble walls, ceramic tile floors, frameless glass, a soaking tub, and floating vanity and toiletry cabinets. Also on the 3rd floor is the 3rd bedroom and ensuite bath, featuring wonderful afternoon light, and treetop views of Liberty Lands Park, which is just down the block. Few row houses in our city offer such a close relationship with the natural environment. From the light-filled plant-nurturing interior spaces to the beautifully landscaped patio, to the quiet, tree-lined street, to the gardens, shade, and fields of Liberty Lands, this home will keep you feeling connected to greenery while feeling very much connected to urban life. With Fishtown and Old City each less than a mile walk away, and easy access to the Market Frankford Line, 95, and 676, this home checks off so many boxes, it is the one property that you do not want to miss out on.
