11 N 2ND STREET Unit: 406, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19106
Prepare to be speechless when you first open the door to this custom-renovated condo in the heart of historic Old City. The first thing you will notice is the abundance of natural light and the enormous south-facing windows. Then the impressive open space. Then you'll start to take in the details. Whoa, the kitchen with that massive island, gleaming black granite and stainless steel farmhouse sink, matching stainless appliances, and alllll that cabinet space. Also a pantry that some of your suburban friends will be jealous of, recessed lighting, and custom shelving made from reclaimed former Philadelphia row home beams that remind you that you're located in the heart of history. Then take a quick glance out of that giant window--is that the iconic Continental directly across the street? And the historic Customs House behind it? Behind you, there's more to see in the living area. The centerpiece is the marble-tiled fireplace surround and reclaimed wood mantle, which compliments nicely the original wood ceiling, 14 feet up there. The wood beam built-in shelving and large coat closet in this room provide great storage for items you wish to display, and those you don't. The bedroom has the same incredible view and--surprise--a large walk-in closet! The bathroom is just as spacious as the rest of the unit, with a spa-like glass-enclosed rain shower with beautiful glass subway tile. The laundry is tucked behind folding doors in here, too. There is also an attic space with pull down stairs for additional storage in the unit. And saving the best for last: take just two flights (or the elevator) up to the common roof deck for the most incredible views of all--words really cannot do this justice, so we'll just let you see for yourself! This would be a pretty sweet place to "work from home," wouldn't it? But if you do need to go back to the office, the Market-Frankford line stops at the corner, as do numerous SEPTA bus routes. Also, just a quick hop on to 95 and the Ben Franklin Bridge to NJ. There is a parking lot right next door that offers monthly parking or parking for visitors at an additional fee.
