The word “unique” gets tossed around a lot, but few would argue that it perfectly describes this loft-style house in a rapidly appreciating section of West Philly. Truly one of a kind, this property brings to mind the quintessential Old City-style loft–with the requisite exposed brick, beams and ductwork, industrial-cool unpainted plaster walls and lofted bedroom overlooking the main level–but at a fraction of the cost. The main level is completely open, with a U-shaped kitchen featuring white quartz countertops, crisp white appliances and access to the large back yard. The sky-high ceilings above the kitchen provide tons of natural light, as do oversized windows throughout. Floating stairs lead up to the second floor, which consists of the large bedroom with good-size closet and an updated bathroom with classic white subway tile shower surround with decorative border and pretty six-paneled picture window. Conveniently located at the foot of the Grays Ferry bridge with quick access to South Philly; there are bus and trolley lines nearby that go to Center City in less than 15 minutes and it’s only a few blocks to West Philly’s best kept secret: the Woodland Ave strip with businesses like Four Worlds Bakery, Guacamole Mex-Grille, the Lil Pop Test Kitchen & Bakery, West Philly Community Acupuncture, Philly Homebrew Outlet and the West Philly Tool Library. For outdoor lovers, the west bank connector to Grays Ferry Crescent Park is expected to be complete next year, giving even easier access to bike and pedestrian trails, fishing piers and wildlife in the heart of the city.
