It’s been over thirty years since the last time this Point Breeze rowhome was on the market – but thanks to a complete remodel by the owner, the property looks anything but dated.

Located on a tree-lined block close to South Philadelphia, even the exterior of this home is unique. Different from its neighbors, it features Permastone siding that contrasts nicely with its other black detailing.

Enter into the spacious living area and take in the beautiful solid bamboo flooring. Head back into the open kitchen, which has quality hardwood cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Just beyond the kitchen is a full bathroom.

Upstairs, there are three decently sized bedrooms (one of which is the master), and a second full bathroom. There is also a large basement that can be used as an entertainment space, an at-home gym, an office, or whatever else your heart desires. Laundry is located down here, as well.

As far as “first-time” homes are concerned, this one offers the perfect amount of space for any couple or small family who want a place of their own within the city limits – and its one-of-a-kind details make it that much more alluring.
