That’s because this home combines a great location with updated classic style and nice amenities, including a couple of upscale touches.

The open plan main floor offers maximum flexibility. You could, as the current owner has, put the dining table up front, for instance. It also makes entertaining easy.

The kitchen features a breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, and plenty of cabinet storage space for your cookware, dishes, groceries — and wine: it has a wine rack too.

Downstairs, there’s a finished basement with tile floor that can serve as a rec room, home office, gym or storage space, plus a powder room for your guests.

The two upstairs bedrooms have plenty of closet space, and the extra-large bathroom features a tile-surrounded Jacuzzi tub.

Out back there’s a small patio with space for grilling and chilling.

Everything people flock to Fishtown for surrounds you: shops, bars and restaurants on Girard and Frankford avenues, off-the-beaten-path places like the Memphis Taproom, and quick transit connections to Center City and points beyond. Here you also get quick access to I-95 for your reverse commute (if you have one) and convenient everyday shopping, including a supermarket, in Port Richmond Village just a few blocks’ walk away.
