Have you ever wondered how it feels to have gotten a West Village brownstone for under a million? Get ready to find out. Located on a quiet residential block with excellent long term neighbors, the home is steps to the ever-growing Fishtown dining & nightlife scene and public transportation, at the intersection of Fishtown, Northern Liberties and South Kensington. As demand for parking grows fiercer, the property’s gated off-street parking for TWO CARS means you never need to worry about parking when you get home on a busy Saturday night. The home is furnished with a mix of antique and contemporary pieces, which are available for sale with the property as the owners are becoming expats and moving out of the country! Large, well-proportioned homes in the Fishtown area are rare on the market at any price. This huge townhouse builds on historic Philadelphia architecture, scaled up to unusually large proportions. The open plan ground floor includes a large, light-drenched living room with soaring 14’ ceilings, dining room spacious enough to seat 10 comfortably, and black granite kitchen. The kitchen’s enormous island nonetheless leaves room for a breakfast table or reading area, and a powder room adjoins the kitchen. Ample sunlight makes the house an urban gardener’s dream, as there are shorter buildings on either side of the 17’x100’ property, so both the east and west exposures get gorgeous light on all floors. The 2nd floor is divided by a small set of stairs; the east bedroom spans the whole rear of the house, while the west bedroom and the large 2nd floor full bath are raised about half a floor, creating excellent privacy for both 2nd floor bedrooms; the west bedroom spans the whole front of the house. The stairs to the 3rd floor owner’s suite lead first to the sitting room, office or workout room, which leads to the large west-facing balcony spanning the full 17’ width of the house. The massive bedroom faces east and has high ceilings, incredible light, and enough space for sleeping and sitting areas. The large full bath with custom tiled shower and double sinks includes doors to both the bedroom and sitting room. The fully finished basement includes a bedroom at the rear of the house, as well as a full bath with shower, media room, and laundry.
