Here’s something rare: a 19th-century carriage house that’s been converted into a lovely art studio/residence with central air, great light, a roof deck, and hardwood floors upstairs. The property does have CMX2 zoning so can be redeveloped for multi-unit mixed-use.

1ST FLOOR: Enter through oversized double doors (which can be restored to garage entry) into the 1st-floor studio – a huge wide open space, perfect for art production, business, or other visions. The full bathroom is off to the left. There’s a working sink, elaborate lighting, and a built-in sound system. The front of the 1st Floor is a wide open space with a 22′ rise to the upper level. The front studio area also has a power winch for raising heavy things to the 2nd floor. Winding stairs on the 1st floor installed by the Iron Shop lead to the second floor featuring a mezzanine overlooking the front of the studio.

2ND FLOOR: is huge and has true oak hardwood flooring, a kitchen, triple front windows, great natural light, carefully installed lighting fixtures, a ceiling mount video projector with a large screen, and a gorgeous cupola with multiple operable windows to flood the front with light. The winding stairs continue up to a third level – with a large landing and pilot house exiting to a roof deck with plenty of room for plants, grilling, and entertaining.

There’s a high-efficiency on-demand hot water heating system installed, a high-efficiency furnace, effective central air, and an exhaust system for fresh air circulation. A large vault package mailbox is installed out front to make life easier and protect your packages. The East Kensington neighborhood, next to Fishtown, continues to bring investment. 2614 Amber is just off Frankford Ave, close to train transit, and a quick trip to Center City. This is a really special property that rarely comes to market – a chance to have your own dreamy mixed-use space or develop a signature project. Easy to show.

Kensington is uniquely situated in Philadelphia. It’s close to Fishtown and not too far from Northern Liberties. Geographically, well, that’s debatable, but many say it’s bounded by Erie Avenue to the north, Front Street (and sometimes Fifth Street) to the West and Trenton Avenue to the East. (That could be because Kensington has it’s own...
