Original charm blended with a contemporary sensibility makes for the perfect design match in this super stylish Fishtown home. On a tree-lined block in a desirable Riverside location, this lovely home features curated light fixtures to supplement the amazing natural light throughout, a mix of antique-finish random-plank pine floors and newer black floors, and meticulous design choices that tie everything together. The first floor features a formal sitting room at the front with a coat closet and access to the basement tucked under the stairs. Head back past the adorable powder room with floating sink and penny tile floors into the main living space. Here the recently updated U-shaped kitchen overlooks a spacious living room with space for dining and, most importantly, has sightlines to the lovely back yard through floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors. The sleek kitchen features black granite countertops, duochrome black and white flat-front cabinetry with under-cabinet lighting, and newer appliances including Bosch 4-door French door refrigerator. The primary suite sits on the second floor with a hotel-like elegance; dual closets flank the entrance to the private bathroom featuring gray marble tile floors, black granite-topped vanity and white ceramic tile tub surround. There's an additional built-in closet in the main bedroom, along with pretty pendant lamps and a full-wall window. Across the hall is another spacious bedroom with two large windows and closet with custom shelving. The pair of rooms upstairs could easily function as an entire third-floor suite, or kept separate as they are currently for those in a WFH situation. The smaller room with floating shelves would make a great home office, while the large bedroom at the rear features cathedral ceilings with a bonus loft space to use as storage, a sleeping loft or reading nook. Both rooms open into a full bath with pedestal sink and soaking tub. This home is close-but not too close-to Girard and Frankford aves, there are plenty of options for public transit as well as I-95, and Penn Treaty Park is just a stone's throw away.
