Sun-drenched and stylish, you’ve found the East Kensington/Fishtown Oasis you’ve been looking for. This new construction home is the best on the block and comes with seven years remaining on a tax abatement to sweeten the deal. With smart features galore, the home features many new construction amenities, including a nest thermostat, equipped for an alarm system, keyless entry front door, and built-in speakers all the way up to the roofdeck.
Floor-to-ceiling windows in the first floor living-space greet you upon entering the home and beautiful hardwood floors lead you through the open-concept dining area and into a wide galley-kitchen with beautiful granite countertops, an island for added counter space, and a plethora of soft-close kitchen cabinets. Stainless steel appliances, black drawer and cabinet pulls and sleek gold pendant light fixtures accent the kitchen’s features. Just beyond is a patio cocoon convenient for grilling, gardening, or hosing off the dogs.
A finished basement with an egress window offers a second living space perfect for lounging, working out, hosting guests, or even to be used as a fourth bedroom. Here you will find two storage closets and a neat mechanical closet, along with a full bathroom with a shower.
The second floor of the home has two generously sized bedrooms, both equipped with a ceiling fan and recessed lighting and the corresponding bathroom has a beautiful marble vanity with a glistening subway-tiled bathtub. A separate laundry area on the living level is key and completes the floor.
Atop it all, the owners’ en suite occupies the third floor. The large and bright bedroom is accented with a unique illuminated tray ceiling. Both the suite’s walk-in closet and separate linen closet have custom shelving and drawers optimizing both spaces, while the bath features a marble double vanity and spacious shower with dual shower heads.
Finally, a beautiful wet bar with a sink, refrigerator, storage, and custom wooden shelving leads to the rooftop with beautiful panoramic views of the Philadelphia skyline.
Steps from Frankford Avenue, and just one block from the newly renovated Pops Park, this pocket of the East Kensington neighborhood is vibrant and growing by the day. Bars, restaurants, shopping, and yoga studios saturate the area. Easy parking in the neighborhood and quick access to I-95 make for an easy option to commute by car or a short walk to the market/frankford lines give you the greener alternative of traveling by train.
