You won’t run out of room in this classic, stylish and over-sized townhome in the heart of Fishtown. This home offers a nice balance of modern amenities with lots of original details and charm. The original, gleaming oak late 1920’s parquet flooring with in-lay covers the entire first floor living space and there are two ornamental mantels adorning it. The ceiling height is high and an oversized powder room with Kohler toilet is conveniently located there (pipes remain to make into a full bath). The kitchen is one of the larger ones in Fishtown, with dark wood Kraftmaid cabinetry, mostl…y stainless appliances, granite countertops, room for a table and chair and holds laundry behind folding doors. Out the rear door, you’ll find a decent sized grassy yard to host your Summer parties. Upstairs, the parquet with in-lays continues in the hall to three larger sized bedrooms, the highlight of which is the rear master bedroom with dressing room/closet with original corbels on the walls and a faux mantel. The renovated bathroom has hex tile on the floor, a deep soaking tub with subway tile and has a double sink and lots of storage. On the top floor, you’ll find the original curved staircase railing and two adjoining rooms that have recessed lighting, new sheetrock and carpeting. The furnace was just replaced in 4/2014.
