Fishtown/East Kensington 

This is a stunning renovation of an existing 3 story, wide, redbrick rowhouse – combining gorgeous century old materials with creative contemporary design. Just what we expect from the designers at Red Oak – solid handcraft, thoughtful choices (dozens of them) and no cheese. Also.. this comes just in time for the opening of a fabulous Co-op grocery story with bar-cafe on the same block. 1ST FLOOR: Enter into large open living and dining area with custom railings (fabricated in-house), exposed brick, refinished century old pine floors, and great light. Wide custom kitchen in rear features huge quartz island, custom tilework and lighting, gas cooking, steel appliances, built-in hardwood shelves, ample cabinet space and large glass sliding doors, flooding the whole space with light. REAR YARD: Sliding doors exit to a very private wide rear yard big enough for greening, grilling, and gatherings. The house has its own alleyway extending from Coral Street for bike storage, trash removal and day-to-day convenience. 2ND FLOOR: Front room features an extra wide bedroom with generous closet space and more refinished pine flooring. 2ND FLOOR BATH: full bath with custom tilework, wide vanity, and a large closet set-up for washer and gas dryer. Extra bedroom at rear of 2nd floor has closet, great light and view. 3RD FLOOR: Doorway in 2nd floor hall leads to a private 3rd floor master suite – very large bedroom and sitting area in front with more gorgeous flooring and natural light plus a walk-in closet. 3rd Floor Bath is lovely featuring two custom vanities made from repurposed old-growth wood, a dramatic hex tile floor, paired with a very airy tile choice surrounding the shower. You’ll see more thoughtful choices for lighting and plumbing fixtures – breaking away from all the big-box store motifs. BASEMENT: is large and clean, ready for your storage or crafting needs. All mechanicals are new. The renovation work is high quality with a care for energy efficiency. Buyer will qualify for the City of Phila. 10 Year Tax Abatement. The energy and investment in the neighborhood continues to grow, and has proven a sound investment over a decade now. This house is a work of art with an uplifting sense of light and space, unafraid to mix old and new, deep and bright, soft and strong elements, to make something very alive.

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.
