Fantastic opportunity in the Riverside section of Fishtown. This diamond in the rough has great bones, charming, original details and a unique layout and is just waiting for the right owner. Built in 1925 and once a storefront, this 18' wide corner home features two entrances and multi-levels of living spaces. The first floor features a large living room with exposed joist ceilings, painted hardwood floors and exposed brick. A lower level living room with hardwood floors, shiplap ceilings a brand new full bath with stall shower could function as an in-law suite. The kitchen is a blank slate and a trinity-style curved staircase leads to a second floor featuring two large connected rooms with a once-functioning fireplace. The home's mansard roof is punctured by dormer windows which creates an additional 3rd floor of habitable space and includes two additional rooms, one with a walk-in closet, and a full bath with clawfoot tub. The full basement also contains a secondary lower level basement. With a little elbow grease and some sweat equity, this could be a truly unique and charming residence. You'll love the neighborhood. Enjoy coffee at Milk Crate, breakfast at Sulimay's and drinks at Johnny Brenda's, Barcade or Stephen Starr's Frankford Hall. Take part in Fishtown's special events like the Kinetic Sculpture Derby, Trenton Avenue Arts Festival and First Friday gallery openings.
