1130 E COLUMBIA AVENUE, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19125
Located in the heart of Fishtown, literally steps off Girard Ave, this large, lovingly cared for and customized home is a true reflection of the energy and vitality of the vibrant neighborhood. Starting with the custom-designed ironwork on the front door, every detail of this home has been thoughtfully considered for design and function. The first floor living space is massive. The living room features a wood-burning fireplace with granite surround and hearth, and cork flooring which runs through to the handmade terra-cotta tile in the dining room, and finally the custom kitchen. Crafted by local design company Craftwork, the kitchen features poured concrete countertops, vibrant handmade wood cabinetry and shelving, tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. The back door features the same rain glass as the front door, and leads to an oversized backyard and a brick alleyway out to the front. Back inside, the floating staircase leads to the open, light-filled 2nd floor hallway with large skylight overhead and Logico wall sconces. This floor has two spacious bedrooms with nice-sized closets, and the large luxury bathroom. This bright bathroom features a high-quality vanity with quartz top, soaking tub and glass-enclosed shower with marble accents, and top-of-the-line brand name fixtures. The 3rd floor is a large bedroom, and has great potential for an addition out the back. The well-lit basement offers opportunity as well the washer and dryer is down here, as well as a toilet and shower just waiting for you to finish it off. Mechanicals are new: water heater (2020), furnace (2019), and AC compressor (2019). This home has been soulfully maintained and updated by the current owner of nearly 20 years. It also offers a unique opportunity in that it is CMX zoned; current owner operated a yoga studio here. The location is ideal and walkable to everything Fishtown has to offer: it s literally across from the Milkcrate Cafe; Penn Treaty Park, The Fillmore, Frankford Hall, Suraya and all the good eats along Frankford are just a few of the other walkable hotspots. For commuters, it s an easy walk to Girard SEPTA station and quick access to I-95. Like the neighborhood, this home has it all space, location, character, and quality!
