A fantastic opportunity to take work from home to a new level. Welcome to 205 Fairmount, an amazing newly renovated double width property with zoned commercial space on the ground floor, and an impeccably designed 4,000 sq ft home above. Offering the flexibility to utilize the ground floor that best fits your needs, the open space is zoned CMX-2.5 and can be rented out, used as a home office, design studio, or added as additional living space to the home. An office and powder room can be found in the rear of the ground floor along with access to the unfinished basement. The backyard offers an area for home gardening and features a custom mural by a local Philadelphia graffiti artist. There is also access to an alleyway for easy access to take out the trash and recycling. Heading up to the main living floor, prepare to be wowed by the open concept space. The 24 foot wide great room is an excellent entertaining space. Original refinished floors add character to the room along with special touches including vintage light fixtures purchased in Amsterdam. The gas fireplace beam is repurposed from a 1920s factory from Dumbo NYC. The gourmet kitchen includes a 42 inch gas range with two ovens, industrial exterior vented hood, quartz countertops and backsplash, and ceramic farmhouse sink. The kitchen and ground floor kitchenette are all serviced by a water filtration system. Off the kitchen area is a back deck, the perfect spot for a grill. The main living floor is complemented by a powder room styled with 16th century Delft tiles repurposed from Amsterdam canal homes. Two separate staircases lead to the third floor: one new staircase installed during the renovation, and a second art deco style (grandfathered in). On the third floor, you will find two generously sized bedrooms, a Calcutta marble tiled bathroom, full size laundry room, and a loft space that can be utilized as an office. On the fourth floor, you will find a third bedroom and European wet bathroom, and the main suite. You enter the main suite through vintage doors reclaimed from a bar in Atlanta. The fourth floor ceiling was raised during the renovation to allow for extra ceiling height and the addition of Velux skylights which can be operated remotely to tilt open and control the blackout shades. Two walk-in closets provide an abundance of storage. Entering the en-suite bathroom, notice the heated tile floors by Cle. Each of the two vanities has custom cabinetry for extra storage. Finally, the roof deck spans the full roof and is supported by new structural steel beams and covered by low maintenance Trex composite decking. The roof deck offers separate spaces for lounging, gardening, and dining, all while utilizing the views of the Philadelphia skyline to the west and the Ben Franklin Bridge and Delaware River fireworks to the east. This one of a kind home must be toured to appreciate the thoughtful detail throughout. 205 Fairmount Ave offers easy access to 676, 95 and the Ben Franklin bridge, is minutes from Jefferson and Pennsylvania Hospitals, and is in a prime location to walk to Northern Liberties hot spots for craft beer, brunch, and cutting edge cuisine. Plus, it is only a stones throw from Fishtown and a very short walk to SEPTA/Spring Garden Station, making getting to Center City a breeze. Seller is offering credit for 1 year parking at nearby parking lot.
