Fishtown/East Kensington 

Here’s a lovely and affordable 2 story, 2 bedroom, thoroughly upgraded house in an exciting area. This is one of two houses side-by-side (2543 Kern is adjacent) both listed for sale now by the same owner.

1ST FLOOR; Enter into front living area with original hardwood floors and stairs. 2nd living area on side of the stairway before passage to the rear kitchen with retro black and white 1950’s style cabinets, long washboard sink, a great amount of storage, room to cook and host friends. The rear yard has room enough for guests and grilling

2ND FLOOR: Front bedroom with great light and closet – also with refinished oak floors. A full bath is off the hallway with all-ceramic fixtures. There is a very quiet and private feeling bedroom in the back of the house with great space, oak floors, and storage.

BASEMENT has a full laundry and good height for crafting music, or storage. All mechanicals have been upgraded.

2 houses down there is the Kern Street Garden, a lovely green space created by the neighbors. House is very close to public transit – the EL Station is 3 blocks away as well as the 5 Bus on Frankford Ave steps away. Both are quick trips 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.
