Penthouse Condo in The National

Loft-like space with train and river views for $1.2M.

Kitchen of 113 N Bread Street, Unit 10E.

Deeded parking is the dream if you live in a city of 1.5 million. Unless of course you’re a commuter like myself. Fortunately, the purchase of this penthouse condo gives you the best of both worlds: included garage parking and a 5 minute walking distance from the El’s 2nd Street station.

Speaking of which, I was on that today, and lest my eyes deceive me, it seems you get a view of both the El and the Ben Franklin Bridge from the kitchen. They’re only two of the many outdoor features you’ll get to take in thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows that share a panoramic sight of the neighborhood. The two private balconies don’t hurt either.

In the living room you’ll find a double-sided glass fireplace separating it from the dining area. The bedrooms, meanwhile, each have a walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom. A third room can serve as another bedroom or perhaps an office.
