This high-ceilinged Society Hill townhouse has a traditional facade that hides a mix of modern and historic elements. The kitchen has Viking stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops and backsplash, Shaker-style wood cabinets, and limestone flooring. The formal dining and living rooms have crown molding and wood floors. There’s a breakfast room that leads out to the red brick garden.
The second floor has the master suite, a rear library with built-ins, and a small deck. Another deck is possible right off the stairs leading to the third floor, where two bedrooms share a marble bathroom. A fourth bedroom with a bathroom and bonus open area can be found on the fourth floor. The lower level has a media room.
The listing for this house says it was renovated by owner Kostas Macos, whose company has a highly flattering review on Houzz.com written by user "frumkin," who offers photos and a pretty fleshed out account of Macos' work. The review could be useful (depending upon how much you put in online reviews) in deciding whether you'd be happy with this renovation as well.
Tax abatement is still in place, and two years prepaid parking a couple blocks away could be part of the deal.
The asking price just came down by $100,000 a couple days ago.
