This is a rare opportunity to get an incredible light-filled home in one of the best Fishtown locations at a discounted price (explained below). With a 94 WalkScore and directly across from the popular Shissler Rec Center field and dog park, which will always preserve your open and unobstructed views and light. This is a 4 bedroom 3 full bath and 2 half bath home with Garage Parking, a large inviting home office on the first floor, and a full finished lower level (includes 4th bedroom and full bath--an ideal guest room, family room, play room, home theater, additional office, or some combination of these). This residence offers high ceilings, hardwood floors throughout, solid core doors, tons of glass for great light and views, and Four Outdoor Spaces--a large patio off the 1st floor office, two nice balconies (both on the main floor, off the kitchen and living room), and a walk-out roof deck with the option to add stairs and bring it up to the top roof (off the Main Bedroom). The office also has a half-bath. The main living floor offers an open floor plan, a beautiful stainless and quartz eat-in-kitchen with breakfast bar. GE Café appliances include the French door refrigerator and 5-burner range oven. Ample soft-close cabinetry with pull-outs and Lazy Susan. Dining area and living room with floor to ceiling glass overlooking the park and the Center City skyline. And another half-bath. The 1st bedroom floor has two large bedrooms with awesome light, significant closet space, a full tile bath, and a laundry room with LG high capacity HE side-by-side washer and dryer. The top floor is the full floor Main Bedroom Suite. It has a spectacular full bath, large walk-in closet and other closets, spacious bedroom, and the walk-out deck with awesome views. This home simply has an ideal layout, great finishes, and significant space. Plus, a great location—an easy walk to all that Frankford Avenue, Fishtown, and the River Wards have to offer. And right across the park to the Berks Market-Frankford Line Station, for an easy El ride right into Center City. IMPORTANT NOTE--And here is the information about how and why you will get built-in immediate bonus equity plus all new exterior siding (Hardie Panel), all new windows and sliding doors (both Marvin), and more--all installed by highly reputable local contractors. First, this home has spectacular bones, but its current exterior stucco and windows are defective (not uncommon these days). This is a known issue with this set of homes. Second, Seller has received detailed quotes for this work from two experienced and reputable contractors (quotes available upon request). Third, both these quotes came out in the $160,000 range for extensive work to the entire home shell. Fourth, Seller will reduce the price of this home by $200,000 (to $525,000) for the buyer looking to take on this work. Fifth, Buyer will have a brand-new home envelope with the highest end finishes and $40,000 in immediate equity. Sixth, perhaps buyer prefers a less expensive exterior finish and less expensive windows. Or perhaps they know a reputable contractor who is less expensive. Immediately increase your equity beyond the $40,000. Seventh, this work must be done. The home needs a new shell. At the same time, the seller has taken exquisite care of the interior. She loved this home and cared for it. And is now moving out of the region. Eighth, this home is eligible for a conventional mortgage. Buyer will need to have or borrow the funds to complete the work.
