Description

Known as the light houses for the unique three-story light well crowned by a mostly glass pilot house that, by day, illuminates the stair case with natural light, and by night, is lit by three pendant lanterns suspended from the 50~ high ceiling. Found in different locations across Fishtown, these exceptionally well-designed modern homes are unlike any new construction you~ve ever seen. The original design was thoroughly tailored for the homeowner to live comfortably in modern design. These homes have strikingly high ceilings on every floor elementally crediting to incredibly expansive windows flooding the interiors with natural light and breezes. Welcome friends, family and guests into the first floor which features an open floor plan that frames a functional ergonomic kitchen. Everyone loves an open floor plan but not everyone wants an uninspired ~bowling alley~ layout. This has been addressed by applied boundaries and additional flex space on every floor. Here the central kitchen design with a 12~ super white granite island gives occupants an option to dine, work or play in the kitchen, and dine formally, work, or play in either of the adjacent rooms to the front of the home or toward the back patio. The sliding glass doors allow for additional seasonal living space out of doors if the balcony, front stoop and full footprint roof deck are not enough. In the kitchen, the farm sink, 42~ cabinets, double pantry, and induction stove are unexpected bonuses for the at-home chef. There~s a convenient powder room with a window to the great outdoors on the first floor, far enough from the dining room not to lead to awkward and comical dinner interactions. Take the stairs down to the enormous basement that~s ready to be finished. The second floor has two spacious bedrooms on either side of the hall bath and a convenient laundry area. The third floor is where the master suite lives and next to the terrace, includes the flexible 4th room that could be used as a lovely home office, a private dressing room, a place to enjoy crafting, or as a nursery directly off the Master Suite. The master suite is well appointed with double sinks, custom vanity, sparkling shower, luxury hardware, and WC. In addition to the basement storage, there are double closets in every room throughout the home and a bike garage next to the front staircase that can also store garbage cans, strollers, or sports equipment. Take advantage of this not-to-be missed opportunity as well as the remaining tax abatement.
