Description

You do not want to miss out on this beautiful three story home in the heart of Fishtown. 1536-1538 Susquehanna Avenue is a 16’ x 87’ lot with a combined width of 30’ comprised of a row home and large lot with an off-street parking spot behind a decorative wrought iron fence, a 12’ x 19’ x 4’ above ground pool, outdoor urinal and plenty of space for seating, recreation and gardening. The home has been lovingly maintained with original details like inlaid oak hardwood flooring, crown molding and 10” baseboards. The large picture window provides an ample amount of sunlight during the day and is ideal for displaying beautiful holiday decorations! The first floor consists of a formal living room, family room, small study/office with built in bookcase and large coat/storage closet and large eat-in kitchen with newer, stainless steel GE appliances. Access to the huge yard is through the kitchen, extending your living space in the warmer months! Going downstairs to the partially finished basement, you will find a glass block bar, ceramic tile flooring and a wall of shelves for displaying all of your favorite things! The Samsung washer and dryer are located on this level with additional shelving for storage. From the staircase in the formal living room, you will go upstairs to find two bedrooms and an oversized bathroom on the second floor. At the top of the steps, you are greeted with a beautiful antique brass light fixture. The primary bedroom on this floor is located at the front of the house and has three windows with shutters, allowing for a pleasant cross breeze in the Spring and Summer months. There is a large closet and custom made, oversized armoire with two tall cabinets, five drawers and space for a 42” flat screen television. Moving into the large, Art Deco style, four piece bathroom, you will find marble flooring and tub surround. The highlight of this bathroom is the oversized Jacuzzi soaking tub with crystal chandelier above. The vanity and sink was replaced in 2020 and the tile shower is brand new in 2021. The room is completed by a linen closet in the corner and two windows. The second bedroom on this floor is ideal as a second office, with built in floor to ceiling shelves on one wall and an additional built in shelving unit opposite that. From the second floor, you will go up to the third floor which is a large open space with newer hardwood flooring and multiple windows. This bright, airy space has a large closet on one wall, providing ample amounts of storage. The star of the show for this home is truly the outdoor space that is available! The yard is a hidden gem, providing you with your own private oasis in the heart of this bustling neighborhood and your own parking spot! A true luxury today in Fishtown! The pool is in great condition. The filter was replaced in 2018 and the liner was replaced in 2019. The trees in the back provide the perfect amount of shade for sitting in the yard relaxing on a Sunday afternoon. The flowers in the driveway flower boxes are predominantly perennials, providing a lovely assortment of flowers that come back year after year with great success and very little maintenance. The screen in front of the pool is 4 years old and comprised of Trex decking, so it requires no maintenance while providing a little bit of privacy to the yard. Picture yourself here on Friday or Saturday nights in the Spring and Summer, with takeout from one of the many local restaurants, like Loco Pez or Cedar Point, enjoying the peace in your beautiful backyard! If that is not your ideal, the yard provides more than enough space to do anything your heart desires. It could be a blank canvas for your city-living dreams! This home is truly a one of a kind opportunity in this increasingly popular neighborhood! Do not hesitate to reach out with any inquiries! The homeowners are motivated to sell!
