Fishtown/East Kensington 

*This property is now under contract*

Here’s something very special: a lovely and spacious (1,633 sq ft.) 3 story, 3 bed, 2.5 bath historic home in East Kensington, on a great block with wood floors, great kitchen, central air, high-efficiency heating, an incredible owner’s suite on 3rd floor, and a huge landscaped yard.

1ST FLOOR: Enter into the front living area with vestibule, great light, exposed brick, wood floors, and wide-open layout – tons of space for living, dining, and then some! The kitchen space in the rear has ample cabinet spaces, long quartz counters, disposal, glass door cabinets, an island/breakfast nook, stainless appliances, and great light. This floor also has a half-bath that is very handy for daily life and guests. The yard is designed with hardscaping and thoughtful plantings in mind with plenty of room for gardening and relaxing.

2ND FLOOR: features a good-sized bedroom in the front with great light and storage – can also be used as a very cool den (see photos). In the middle, there is a large bathroom with custom tile work and great light. Adjacent to the second-floor hallway bath, there is a laundry area with a stackable washer & dryer (gas). In the rear of the second floor, you’ll find another bedroom, a sunroom-type room with an abundance of windows, and a view overlooking the yard.

3RD FLOOR: 3rd Bedroom is large with great light and views, exposed brick, a walk-in closet! and a lovely full bath with custom tile work and a glass shower enclosure. 3rd floor also has its own dedicated cooling system (wall-mounted mini-split) for detailed control of both heat and cooling in the owner’s suite.

The basement is finished and has lots of usable space for working out, extra office/workspace, hobbies, craft, or just clean storage if that’s what’s needed. It has a french drain system, sump pump, and mounted dehumidifier to keep the space dry and comfortable.

This home has been thoughtfully transformed – a rare blend of a strong 19th Century redbrick rowhouse, upgraded with all the modern things. The house is a pleasure to walk through and will sell quickly!

About Fishtown/East Kensington

Some locals claim that Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood received its name from Charles Dickens during a visit. Speculations aside, we’re sure that Fishtown grew as a riverside shipbuilding and fishing community. Centuries later, Fishtown boasts an array of Colonial and Victorian row homes and a
renewed vitality.

Fishtown is home to families, artists, and young professionals looking for more affordable housing close to downtown. Interstate 95 is easily accessible from the neighborhood. SEPTA’s Market Frankford Line and restored trolley put you in Center City within minutes. With some new nightspots, Philadelphia Brewing Company, music venues, coffee houses, and art studios, Fishtown is becoming a well known, up-and-coming community, bringing more interest and newcomers to the neighborhood.
