In the middle of a neighborhood full of cookie-cutter new construction sits this right-size house with tons of charm. On a coveted block in the Riverside section of Fishtown, this move-in-ready home fits any style and has original details including pretty oak floors throughout, contemporary upgrades and a kitchen and outdoor space made for entertaining. The transom-windowed front door opens into an inviting living room with decorative brick fireplace and handsome original banister with built-in light fixture--a classic Fishtown touch. The spacious dining room flows into the huge kitchen with blond wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, breakfast bar and great architectural details that call to mind an urban chalet: vaulted ceiling with exposed beam and skylight, painted brick wall, light wood flooring on the diagonal, glass-paneled doors leading to two separate outside areas. The full bath on the first floor, which boasts the original oak floors, was recently updated and features a walk-in shower with subway tile surround with black-and-white hex tile below, and tasteful contemporary vanity and fixtures. The bedrooms are similar in size, both with oversized windows and pretty original wood doors; the master has its own nicely appointed en-suite bath with huge closet, new contemporary white vanity and ceramic tile tub and shower surround. The deep closet in the bedroom provides roof access (potential for a roof deck perhaps?), or use the large wood stairs as built-in shelving. The full basement offers plenty of storage and a laundry area with utility sink. This stylish and spacious house is just a couple blocks from Girard Ave hotspots like Kraftwork, Stock, Milkcrate Cafe and Penn Treaty Park and convenient to both public transportation and I95.
