A-M-A-Z-I-N-G best describes Unit C, a penthouse unit that sprawls along the top of this 3-unit condo building located in the trendy Fishtown with a nine-year tax abatement, which makes this a great investment in a great neighborhood. A flowing open floor plan, ideal for entertaining, leads through a wide galley-style kitchen, adorned on both sides with handsome wood cabinets and large double pantry. Stainless steel appliances, a gas cook stove, deep stainless sink with modern fixtures, and ample granite counters make this a functional space for the creative cook and a cozy area for casual dining. Tucked away in a convenient closet sit a full-sized, stackable front-loading washer/dryer. Stairs from the kitchen provide direct access to the shared, fenced backyard. The adjacent family room opens to a wide space that offers an office area as well as a comfortable arena for gathering and relaxing. The master suite holds a second full bath, contemporary in design with crisp white tiles and a glass enclosed shower. An elegant king-sized master sits at the front, accented with a cathedral style ceiling and two large windows, complete with a set of double closets outfitted with custom inserts. In the rear of the unit, there is a full bath with a shower/tub combo and a spacious, light-filled guest room complete with a set of double-door closets. The crowning glory of this space is the expansive roof deck! A full panoramic view of the city is visible here: The city skyline to the west, Ben Franklin Bridge to the south, the continuous kinetic flow of the streetscape to the north and east. Fishtown, where everything that's anything has planted roots and real estate values are on the rise, is the IT place to be. There is no lack of restaurants and cafes, new boutiques, and furniture design and antique stores abound. The proximity to major highways and a variety of options of public transportation, including quick access to the Market-Frankford Line, invite easy traveling in and around other parts of the city.
