Property Description

At last—the first boutique condo conversion in the Penn Alexander catchment area. These large homes provide the gracious scale and original details that are the hallmark of the neighborhood’s Victorian houses, while offering all the right updates, including all-new kitchens, bathrooms, HVAC and the ease of maintenance associated with condo living. No aluminum-and-stucco boxes here; the developer took care to preserve the lovely character of the elegant Victorian twin building, both inside and out. And it could not be in a more idyllic location: half a block from Clark Park and within blocks of all the neighborhood hot spots. The perfect alternative to a rowhome, and without the hefty monthly fees that come with larger condo buildings, Unit 1 has a great bilevel layout, with entry into the wide-open floorplan living/dining room/kitchen with new hardwood flooring, recessed lighting, original leaded glass window details, a charming window seat and a conveniently located powder room. The kitchen has clean white Shaker-style soft-close cabinetry, a Frigidaire stainless steel appliance package, granite countertops and island with extra-deep undermount stainless steel sink and breakfast bar. The master bedroom suite occupies the rear of this floor, featuring great natural light, good closet space, a niche perfect for a home office, and true privacy with an en suite bath with stylish contemporary vanity, ceramic tile flooring, white subway tile shower surround and built-in shelving. The lower level, which has notably high ceilings, offers two large bedrooms with larger-than-expected windows and closets, a stylishly appointed shared hall bath, a flex area with laundry closet that would make a great den, media room, playroom or exercise space, plus a bonus storage area. This unit has exclusive use of the spacious rear patio with designated garden area. This pet-friendly building has a 10-year tax abatement (pending approval).
