Property Description

Your chance to live in a work of art is now available in this entirely unique, artisan-designed contemporary townhome, constructed in structural steel and concrete, and located on a small, quiet, tree-lined street, with only 2 adjacent homes. Efficiency, sustainability & structural integrity form the foundation to the thoughtful design, beautiful materials & custom details throughout. At approx. 3200 sq. ft., this property is 18' wide & 4 stories tall. Enter the 1st floor through the red stamped front door or pull into the 1-car, heated garage (complete w/50amp level 2 electric car charger). The first of 4 bedrooms (or office space), as well as a full bath w/tiled shower and Vigo doors, is located on the 1st floor with direct access to the fenced backyard with corrugated metal fencing and black locust planters. The spacious open plan 2nd floor provides a loft-style space for living, dining and gourmet cooking. Wall-to-wall 6-ft aluminum-clad solid wood casement windows on the northern exposure and double and single 5-ft casement windows on the southern exposure ensure an abundance of natural light as well as natural airflow from the front of the space to the rear. The striking modern kitchen features stainless steel countertops and a 9~ cooking/dining peninsula, perfect for party buffets as well as casual breakfasts. The custom exhaust hood and stainless steel cabinetry are inset w/solid, native PA black walnut. High-end, stainless steel, energy-efficient appliances (LG refrigerator, KitchenAid dishwasher, LG induction range) are featured. Proceeding up the laser-cut metal staircase with solid hickory treads and curly maple handrails, the 3rd floor is portioned into 2 spacious bedrooms separated by a full bath w/Duravit tub/shower. The generous laundry room comes w/LG front-loading, full-capacity washer & dryer and high-efficiency 50-gallon water heater. The front bedroom has wall-to-wall 5-ft casement windows and the rear bedroom has a 4-ft double-casement window. Each bedroom has its own closet with ample storage. All bathrooms feature wall-hung Toto toilets, large porcelain sinks, Grohe chrome fixtures and handmade tiles from Spain. The 4th floor features the Master Suite, complete w/ a large walk-in closet with custom storage & en-suite bath with a luxurious fully-tiled shower with rain head and frameless Kohler sliding glass doors. Walk out through aluminum-clad solid wood sliding glass doors onto the deck for one-of-a-kind views of the Center City skyline. The finished basement of this home is fully heated, insulated & waterproofed to provide another large, open living space for a family room, den, office or playroom, with a separate utility/storage room. Eight-inch thick concrete party walls provide a solid level of privacy and quiet to this home. Door panels & trim, window trim and balustrades made of PA curly maple add a bespoke warmth to the entire house. This home is heated by a high-efficiency, in-floor, hydronic radiant heating system with separate zones for each floor. Spray-foam insulation throughout the home further reduces excess heat loss. Cooling is efficiently handled by 2 hi-SEER split systems with indoor handlers in each room. This all-electric home is designed to maximize the 7.37kW grid-tied, roof-mounted, PV solar panel system which provides significant cost savings and produces no CO2 emissions. The standing seam steel roof & architectural metal siding is highly durable & virtually maintenance-free. Located one block off Washington Avenue in the northern Point Breeze neighborhood, this home is down the block from artist studios and a community garden on 22nd & Ellsworth with Keith Haring mural.
