UPPER LEVEL of THE LOFT: The open stairs lead to a lovely quiet bedroom area with wood floors and more exposed brick. The 2nd level extends as a mezzanine and also offers a full ceramic bath and another large area for dressing and storage with an elaborate custom closet/storage system and an impressive view down into the main space.
THE PARKING: Rarely found in the City, this unit comes with 2 deeded parking spaces, in a very spacious, well it and completely dry garage protected from the elements. No skinny back-alley driveways to navigate – here you enter right into the garage directly from Hancock Street 24/7 through the large automatic door, for easy-in/easy-out. The garage connects to the building’s interior hallway – no need to head back into the cold.
OTHER DETAILS: The street entrance is secured with an electronic lock and digital call box/intercom. There is a video camera security system in the garage as well as the lobby and front of the building – all residents can monitor. Common areas are well maintained and nearly all the units are owner-occupied. This is a cared-for space, occupied by the current owner until a few weeks ago. The owner has commissioned plans/drawings of the unit from the celebrated firm, Ambit Architecture, included in the sale, detailing innovative design options.
ABOUT THE LOCATION: For those new to Philadelphia – this is Northern Liberties, one of Phila’s most creative and exciting neighborhoods, very close to Center City (a few minutes drive, 10 minutes on Train via Spring Garden Station in walking distance, or 10 minutes to downtown on Bike).
