Are you looking to live in Manayunk and take advantage of all of the nearby bars, restaurants and things to do? You should probably start at Falcon Condominiums at 3863 Terrace Street–especially now that they’re offering a $10,000 credit towards closing costs if you’re under agreement before January 31st. That’s on top of the 10-year warranty and 10-year tax abatement that were already included. Hey, let’s face it, everyone loves freebies.

Developer Khara Cartagena redeveloped the former Falcon Polish Social Hall and officially launched the project back in October. The property includes seven three-story units–five of which are currently available–and we’ve got our eyes on unit #5. It’s the largest one in the community, featuring 2,293 square-feet of space, 3-bedrooms and 2.5-baths.

The secluded master bedroom fills the entire third floor of the home, flaunting an en-suite bath and your very own outdoor terrace. “I love that the walk-in closets are almost as big as the bedrooms,” Cartagena told us in October, speaking to overall design of the property. The large second bedroom is found on the home’s second level. The third bedroom provides  the extra space for multiple guests and could possibly even be used as a den, office or nursery.

The expansive, open floor plan on the main floor is perfect for entertaining or relaxing. Granite counter tops and 42 inch espresso wood cabinetry go beautifully with the stainless steel GE appliances in the kitchen to give it that modern feel and look. There’s also a breakfast bar that flows nicely into the living room area.

Another plus: covered and secure indoor parking is included–a huge plus for living in Manayunk.
