Fresh Listing! $284,900 duplex, 1219 E Berks Street, FishtownJanuary 2, 2015 | by Brooke Willmes
Rarely offered heart of Fishtown duplex. This fully occupied duplex has been very well maintained and features fully separate utilities (except water), with each unit having private washer/dryer and outdoor space. The first floor unit has a newer white kitchen in front with white tile and breakfast bar is open into the living room, featuring hardwood flooring throughout it, the hall and the bedroom. The hall is wide and long enough to function as an office, complete with desk, bookshelf and storage. The bathroom features a shower with beige tile. The bedroom is large enough to hold a queen bed and several dressers, has a closet and has a door to the rear, private patio. This unit also has access to the basement, with private laundry and storage. Upstairs, the second apartment has a long-term tenant at under market value rent and features a similar open layout, with the kitchen in the middle, living room in the rear and bedroom in the front. Here, you access a private deck off the large living room. The bathroom features black and white floor tile and a tub with sliding door enclosure. There are hardwood floors throughout the living and bedroom areas. A stackable washer/dryer fits in a closet into the bedroom and the bedroom has a sliding double door closet. The rear right side of this duplex is not attached to the neighboring twin so the windows there provide this home with more light than the average fully attached row. Either unit would make a fantastic owner-occupant unit.
