New Listing! 2152-54 E Norris St. $550,000March 3, 2014 | by Brooke Willmes
Rare 4500 square foot 30′ wide live/work warehouse in Fishtown with a full-height basement (not included stated sq.ft.). The impressive facade with custom ironwork railing sets the stage for the soaring ceilings and grand proportions of this warehouse residence. Enter the first floor into a 30×76 fully-functioning workshop that could be 2280 sq. ft. more of finished living space for a future owner, several condos, etc. Original flooring throughout laid at the diagonal and stairs to a full height basement with Bilco doors to the street(not a typical crawlspace). Upstairs is 2280 square feet of custom-finished living space into which light floods. The front of the finished living space is home to an over-sized kitchen with an abundance of custom built steel and wood cabinetry, with top of the line stainless appliances including a 48″ commercial range top and hood, double oven, double drawer dishwasher and refrigerator. Handmade concrete counters grace the cabinetry as well as a buffet in the dining area, immediately adjacent with bar seating. The dining area has French doors that open to E. Norris Street. At the other end of this open living space is a huge living room with a large closet, built-in bookshelves and entertainment center. Down a central hall, you will find the bath and two bedrooms. All of these rooms have upper windows, letting natural light flow through the spaces. The bath features a cast concrete trough double sink, a graciously over-sized and fluted claw foot tub and a walk-in shower with tile throughout with an electric radiant concrete floor. The master bedroom intelligently incorporates a full-length walk-in closet behind the bed. The front-loading washer/dryer are also in this room. The ceilings in both bedrooms feature custom paneling. L4 zoning allows a host of possibilities. Sliding door in living room will be removed and the adjacent building closed off and can be custom finished in a way a new buyer would like.
