Weekend Open Houses: Christian, Carpenter and Naval Square

Unit #1, 1747 Christian Street.

Unit #1, 1747 Christian Street.

There’s little to fret over with regards to the three-story rowhouse on Carpenter Street. It’s been freshly renovated and is less than a minute away from the Broad Street Line. Although, it should be noted a brisk walk gets you to Rittenhouse Square in 15 minutes (fans of the HITT workout, you see my point, right?).

In the townhouse out on Captains Way you’ll find a custom kitchen with shaker-style cabinetry and hardwood floors in the living area. As part of a gated community, this home also has extra amenities including a fitness center and seasonal salt water swimming pool.

On Christian Street, the former post office building is now a condominium. This particular unit has a second floor open den/office area that would make a pretty cool bedroom. Other pluses include a roof deck with a skyline view and finished basement with gym or media room potential.

Weekend Open Houses: Counties Edition

1320 Lafayette Road, Gladwyne, PA.

1320 Lafayette Road, Gladwyne, PA.

This weekend we decided to spotlight homes from each of the four counties surrounding Philadelphia. For Delco, we chose a recently renovated house that has a fireplace with a raised hearth and a cute wood stove insert. And with warmer days soon to come, we thought its salt water swimming pool was worth a mention too.

Our Chester County choice might seem familiar, and that’s because it is. We featured Strawberry Hollow Farm a little over a week ago, but now you can go see the farmhouse’s cathedral ceilings in person. The brick Colonial in Montco has a cherry-paneled den, vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors, and in the family room there’s a wood stove insert. Outside, a swimming pool.

Weekend Open Houses: Two Homes in Manayunk and West Mt. Airy

Living space of 153 Kalos Street.

Living space of 153 Kalos Street.

Visiting these two homes in Manayunk and two in West Mt. Airy could determine which has the most living appeal– although, they all have their pros.

First, the Kalos Street home has been completely rehabbed and sits near a small truss of restaurants surrounding Ridge Avenue (FYI, the neighborhood is one of a handful in the city with a high density of pizzerias). Meanwhile, the Grape Street residence is just a little over a 10-minute walk from Never Give Up Training, a studio offering intensive fitness classes. It’s also been updated and includes a sizable roof deck with views of the city.

After all the food we’ll consume on Thanksgiving, getting off the couch to take a tour of open houses is recommended. Two of these are within a 10-minute walk of each other, and the other is less than 15 minutes away. Put it all together with the fact that these are all at the same time, and you’ll be running around with an elevated heart rate for sure.
