This recently renovated quintessential starter home in Fishtown just might be "the one." Featuring hardwood floors throughout, a side staircase (no splitting up rooms here!), a great layout with two true bedrooms and a neutral (but not sterile) color palette, this house is the definition of move-in ready. The enclosed foyer with glass-paneled entry door leads into an open floorplan living area with hardwood floors, high ceilings and great natural light. There's a designated dining area with enough room to fit both a dining table and a desk to make it multi-purpose room, followed by the nicely appointed ceramic tile kitchen with granite countertops with undermount sink beneath a cute little window, good cabinet storage and room for an additional prep space as the current owners have it, or put in a pub table for a cozy eat-in kitchen. A great tiled mudroom with powder room and laundry leads out to the sweet back patio?the perfect space to test out a pallet wall garden or other inspiration from Greensgrow Farms, which is right down the street. The second floor has awesome original wide-plank wood flooring, a large front bedroom with nice natural light and great closet space and a second bedroom perfectly proportioned for use as a bedroom or home office. The bright and breezy spacious hall bathroom has an oversize window, granite-topped vanity with good storage below and ceramic tile floor and shower surround. The clean basement provides tons of storage space as well as a separate smaller room that is currently being used as a makeshift music studio. This right-sized home is conveniently located to I95 and public transportation, although with Fishtown hot spots like Pizza Brain, Loco Pez and Kensington Quarters within walking distance, there's almost no reason to leave the neighborhood.
