2543 Kern St Philadelphia, PA 19125 | $197,500

Fishtown/East Kensington 

Here’s a lovely and affordable 2 story, 2 bedroom, upgraded house in an exciting area. This is one of two houses side-by-side, both listed for sale by the same owner.

1ST FLOOR; Enter into front living area with original hardwood floors and stairs. 2nd living area on another side of the stairway before passage to the rear kitchen with new cabinets and appliances. The rear yard has room enough for guests and grilling.

2ND FLOOR: Front bedroom with great light and closet. The rear bedroom can serve as a small 2nd bed, or guestroom, study, or workspace. The bathroom has all newer tile and ceramic fixtures.

BASEMENT is partially finished – with full laundry and some nice extra space for crafting music, or storage. All mechanicals have been upgraded and well as the roof and sewer line.

3 houses down there is a lovely green space created by the neighbors. Close to public transit (EL Station is 3 blocks away) as well as the 5 Bus on Frankford Ave steps away – both are a quick trip to Center City. This is your opportunity to own your own home, on a great block with great neighbors – in a neighborhood that continues to inspire investment for well over a decade now. House is a pleasure to walk through and easy to show.

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.
