Description

This property is no longer available to rent or buy. This description is from September 15, 2015
Situated on a quiet tree-lined street, this house is the perfect blend of vintage charm and modern updates, starting with the brick facade, freshly painted cornice and beautiful iron window boxes and grates. The vestibule has been lovingly restored with a new arched transom, classic black-and-white hex tile floor and cool schoolhouse light fixture. A pretty glass-paneled door opens to the open living/dining room with original pine floors, recessed lighting, neutral paint tones and high ceilings. The bright kitchen was just renovated featuring granite countertops with undermount sink, stainless steel appliances, including a five-burner range, clean white Shaker-style cabinets and subway tile backsplash and under-cabinet lighting. Walk out to the charming patio with reclaimed slate patio, cool horizontal wood fence and mature plantings that include a butterfly bush, hostas and an azalea bush. The second floor features a super-spacious, super-stylish bathroom with double vanity, built-in storage, subway tile walls, restored clawfoot tub/shower combo with reproduction fixtures, two large windows and, if that isn't enough, radiant heated flooring for those cold mornings. The master bedroom has two windows, custom colors, newly built closet and a ceiling fan. The back bedroom features a cute custom picture/display rail, ceiling fan and expanded closet. Centrally located and close to everything Fishtown has to offer: minutes to the El and local faves Fette Sau, Loco Pez, La Colombe and Frankford Hall, just to name a few--and don't forget about First Friday along the Frankford Ave Art Corridor.
