Cool, creative, and serene Live/Work space on burgeoning Girard Avenue, bridging two amazing neighborhoods - Fairmount and Brewerytown. This elegant townhome with CMX2 zoning has many possible uses and is move-in ready as the current owners use it or can be reimagined as a multi-family dwelling, a commercial store front and many other opportunities. Original brick and brownstone facade with wide marble stairs surrounded by a graceful custom railing greets you from the sidewalk. Victorian encaustic floor tiles and soapstone wainscot grace the double door entry to this beautiful home. There are historic details throughout from the lighted newel post to crown mouldings and paneling around the staircase - arching niches and wide plank floors surprise at every turn. Enter into the open plan living and dining room framed by large columns which emphasize the high ceilings found throughout the house. Recessed lighting and crisp gallery white walls enhance the airy sun-splashed feel of this already sunny home. Past the staircase is the oversized chefs galley kitchen - a fabulous cooking and entertaining space with stainless cabinets and appliances topped by quartz counters and glass tiled backsplash. There is a south facing enclosed yard off of the kitchen offering a sweet spot for container gardening, grilling and outdoor dining. Ascend to the second floor where two large bedrooms bookend this level at front and back. Vintage long leaf yellow pine floors both natural and painted mix with artistically stained plywood panels, new walnut floors and historic light oak to create a melange of flooring textures. The second floor back bedroom has a south facing bay window overlooking the yard while the front bedroom has contemporary built-ins framing the bed space. There is an additional bedroom or office/den and full bath between them. The bathroom is completely new with tiled floor, stacked laundry and a beautiful glass enclosed shower with full tiled wall enclosure and soap niches. The top floor holds two more bedrooms (the owners use them as offices/creative spaces) one of which is two rooms joined together making a large flex space. These rooms flank the second full bath with vanity, slate tile floor and an original claw foot soaking tub. A spacious basement houses the mechanicals and offers tons of additional storage space or could be your own woodworking shop as the owners use it today.
