Hello! You’ve found your unicorn! This recently-built, attractive, extra-wide (almost 19 ft) three-story brick townhouse has everything you’ve been looking for that many basic row homes don’t have. For example, a multi-use entryway for shoes, toys, coats, bikes, strollers, skate boards, leashes, and mail can be easily and neatly stowed, or dress it up as a formal foyer because you can put all the aforementioned unmentionables in the GARAGE (Yaaasss Queen)! This home has 2-3 car parking depending on size of cars.  5-car parking if you have 5 Mini Coopers. 

The 1st floor bedroom could be a haven for guests because there is a bathroom with a tub on the same level. Or create a 2nd den with home theater, or a clever multi-person home office that could possibly receive clients because it’s accessible and separate from the living quarters by a staircase.  You could even create a recreation room with games for kids and or work out equipment for adults and or games for adults like billiards or Foosball. This room opens outdoors to a sunny yard where friends will love playing hide and go seek among the landscaped shrubs in the wooded rear yard. Downstairs, the basement offers tons of storage, and houses the utilities including a brand-new HVAC system. 

Upstairs you’ll be floored (real estate pun!) by the expansive open layout with areas for an extra wide living room with a gas fireplace, formal dining, and casual breakfast area or pantry. The kitchen is naturally illuminated by a wall of sliding glass doors framing a lovely deck perfect for grilling and dining al fresco. It also has plenty of granite counter space and cabinetry for miles, as well as brand new upgraded stainless appliances. The kitchen/dining area is L-shaped, with room for an island and an eat-in/dining room table, credenza or hutch.  This could be a great kitchen for social media cooking if you have a food blog with a following. On the second floor, two bedrooms share a spacious hall bathroom next to a hallway laundry closet. The third bedroom is the master suite, with his and her walk-in closets!

If all of this is not enough, then location, location, location! The Riverside section of Fishtown. It's full of character and charm, as well as ease and convenience. You’re mere steps from Penn Treaty Park, Philadelphia’s most beautiful waterfront park that overlooks the Ben Franklin Bridge. Even closer are all the amenities on Girard Avenue including Kraftwork, Stock, Lloyd, Sketch Burger (which has the best chocolate covered coconut macaroons on the planet), Milk Crate Café, Ekta, Johnny Brenda’s, Garage, and more. It can't get more convenient to the I-95 North and South entrances. Public transit options include the Front St stop on the El, and the refurbished antique trolley that takes you all the way across the city on Girard Ave. to the Philadelphia Zoo. Walk to all things Fishtown and even Northern Liberties, including Acme, Wine & Spirits, and Orange Theory. You'll need to after being so close to so many food options.  We could go on and on, but we’re too busy polishing up your new house keys for closing.  See you then and there!
