Description

This property is no longer available to rent or buy. This description is from March 14, 2015
Impress your friends with this home's incredible style and small carbon footprint. Renovated with the utmost attention to detail, this 2 bedroom/2 bathroom home has what you are looking for on one of Fishtown's best blocks. Quiet and neighborly Hewson Street is steps away from your local favorites: Loco Pez, Reanimator Coffee, Cedar Point Kitchen & Bar and only a 9 minute walk to the Market Frankord El at Front and Berks. Kitchen is well laid out and has beautiful Shaker style wood cabinets and stainless steel appliances including side-by-side refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. Apron sink, decorative lighting fixtures, butcher block countertop and subway tile make this feel like a "Restoration Hardware" remodel. Built ?in shelves in the living room make clever use of the chimney chase and the transom over door adds abundant natural light. Full bathroom to the rear gives access to the yard and reuses the home's original and lovingly restored sink basin. Pocket door allows light thru but gives the privacy your guests need. Small patio for grillin' and chillin'. Upstairs main bedroom in the rear has its own private bathroom with tub. Front bedroom is drenched in sunlight. Basement- currently used for laundry and storage- has great ceiling height and could be finished for added living space. Radiator heat and forced central air means you have the best of both worlds! Plus many of the systems are new in the past 2-7 years. Check the disclosure, make your appointment, and you won't be disappointed.
