Home Details for 816 Almond St


For Sale > PA > Philadelphia > 19125 > Kensington > 816 Almond St
You're not priced out of Fishtown after all! This perfect starter home is on a pretty tree-lined street in the heart of the neighborhood. With great features like an exposed brick accent wall, spacious kitchen, enormous bathroom, good outdoor space and the elusive straight staircase, it also has tons of potential for upgrades, including a third floor that could totally become a master retreat. The main living area is bright and open with a large living room with a chair rail that separates the space visually from the dining area. The painted gray stairs and pale peach walls give off a c...hill beach house vibe year-round?minus the cheesy shell decor, of course. The U-shaped kitchen at the rear is perfectly functional, with white flat-front cabinetry, matching white appliances and warm terra cotta-hued ceramic tile; the ideal layout makes it a great candidate for a super-manageable renovation. There's a nice patio out back, offering plenty of room for grilling and the classic urban container garden. On the second floor there's a nice-sized bedroom with a huge closet plus a bonus smaller closet; this could easily be the master bedroom given its proximity to the bathroom, which is downright huge and has a ceramic tile tub surround, granite-topped wood vanity and plenty of room to add a linen cabinet or shelving. The third floor has two nice-sized bedrooms; the front is currently used as the master. Don't need the third bedroom? The rear room makes a great office, could be a large dressing room and/or seating nook as part of a master retreat--or go nuts and add another bathroom up here. The basement has good ceiling height, plenty of room for storage and a laundry area with utility sink. With easy access to I95 and multiple bus lines, commuting from this house is a breeze, while the neighborhood itself has amazing bars and restaurants. Kraftwork, Lloyd and Loco Pez, are all within a few blocks, and of course you're only a few minutes from the ever-expanding Frankford Ave corridor.
