COMING SOON a rare opportunity to live in an architecturally distinctive, COMPLETELY renovated row home in one of the hottest little neighborhoods in the city! From a premier, local design/build team comes this top-to-bottom re-envisioning of the classic Philly-style housing type. It starts by re-orienting the old, central stair with a new, straight run of open-riser stairs with reclaimed lumber treads and anchoring against the exposed brick wall to allow an open-concept first floor plan. To reinforce this vertical element, a large rooftop skylight floods the stair core and thru-floor opening with natural light and helps connect the different levels. Fully finished basement with guest bedroom is filled with natural light from large window-well at front, with French drain and sump pump integrated into the new floor. The buildings natural materials are on display with exposed brick throughout and exposed wood beams at the first-floor ceiling, adding height to the wide-open space. New chefs kitchen with luxury-grade GE stainless steel appliances, island and wet bar. A fantastic layout for flow and entertaining. Second floor has two more bedrooms, master bathroom with walk-in closet and large Juliet balcony overlooking the backyard patio which is designed for grilling and outdoor dining. Rooftop is solar power ready! Builder has teamed with local solar power specialists Solar States to prepare the building for photovoltaic panels, if buyer wants to add them now or in the future. Additional sustainable features include solar tube bringing natural light into master bathroom and rainwater barrel that captures and stores stormwater from the roof. Located on a quiet street just blocks from the Berks Street El stop and some of Fishtowns greatest spots, including Suraya, Fetta Sau, Frankford Hall, William Mulherins, Philly Style Bagels, Evil Genius Brewery, Pizzeria Beddia, Laser Wolf, and the list goes on. INCLUDES 10 YEAR TAX ABATEMENT AND ONE YEAR BUILDER WARRANTY! Contractor is busy at work so hardhat open houses beginning early May and project completion end of June. Ask me about a Bank of America Mortgage program (for this neighborhood!) I just learned of that could contribute around $15k toward downpayment and closing costs!
