You may recall that showstopper of a home in Fishtown that we showcased back in June?

Well, Lux-Living, the design firm that produced it, is back with another one.

This larger home, an expanded trinity on a corner lot in Fishtown, is no less sophisticated than its sister, but this time, the home combines elements of traditional elegance with rustic touches that complement its modern feel.

Take the wainscoting in the living room, for instance, or the coffered ceiling in the master bedroom. Both of these design elements add a note of luxury to this home.

The kitchen blends traditional farmhouse-style cabinetry (with shelves made from wood reclaimed from the home’s original joists) with up-to-the-minute appliances, subway tile backsplashes and contemporary quartz waterfall countertops.

It also has an outdoor deck on the second floor that’s perfect for relaxing and partying alike. In colder weather, you can do both in the fully finished basement rec room as well.

This home is ready for its closeup but not yet officially for sale. If you’d like to check it out, Custom Philly Homes is having an open house on Thursday, Dec. 8, from 6 to 8 p.m. Popular local graffiti artist Gloss Black will create a mural during the event.



BATHS: 2 full, 1 half


SALE PRICE: $479,000

OTHER STUFF: The guts of this home are likewise all-new, including the electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems.
