This Restored Brewerytown Home Is Incredible…and For Sale
Wowza, here’s another find you maybe didn’t expect to see on Property: Sitting on the corner of 30th and West Girard is this gorgeously restored beauty that’s listed for just under $700k. It has a completely rebuilt facade (designed to honor the property’s history no less), is wired up for speakers and an intercom system, and has touch screen panels.
But regarding that history-honoring frontage, there’s an original custom arched bay window, mahogany doors with original hardware, and a vestibule with marble wainscoting and curved transoms. Moving into the home you’ll note modern luxuries start to rear their face even with features like wood-clad windows and mahogany wood floors: stereo satellite with iPod hookup, full bar with ice maker, sink, and fridge, and a second-level library den with flat-screen TV and surround sound just to mention a few.
Kitchen-wise there’s an oversized island and custom 42-inch cabinetry with frosted glass. Soft-close drawers and a bookshelf and pantry are also here. From that space, you can make your way to the dining area with double sliding doors opening out to a back patio. Upstairs, the bay windowed master bedroom offers a fireplace with restored mantle and a bathroom right next to a dressing room/closet & laundry area with a folding counter. Super convenient in our opinion.
For those in desperate need of a home office, the third level offers two bedrooms and an office with frosted sliding glass doors. It also has a closet and is just off the main hallway, which has a skylight lighting up the upper floors. There’s also a hall bathroom here and it comes with a granite bench and porcelain tile. Finally, the finished basement has an extra storage room.
