Looking for a condo that’s a real flight of fancy?
Take off for Northern Liberties and land at this stunner on North Hancock Street.
This bi-level unit in a converted light industrial building is the textbook example of a loft apartment: its bedrooms occupy a floor inserted into this huge box above its kitchen. The master has a Juliet balcony that opens out onto the main living/dining room, giving you a great view of that soaring space.
Gracing that space is an original Arts and Crafts-style stained-glass window. That’s “original” as in “created for this condo,” not “original” as in “was part of the original building.” Either way, though, it adds a unique element of style to an already distinctive dwelling. And you can open that window to let fresh air in whenever you feel like it.
The rest of this home has all the architectural features you’d expect to find in an industrial-chic loft: exposed brick and steel beams, wood-braced ceilings, metal spiral staircases.
The kitchen boasts traditional cabinetry and modern stainless-steel appliances. There’s a flat-screen TV mounted on one wall so you can catch up with the morning news while you sip your morning coffee. The bathrooms are modern and functional.
Actually, this home is also a rarity: a double-loft apartment. That loft master bedroom has its own loft inside it. This makes working from home convenient, as you only need climb the ladder to your home office.
This home that will lift your spirits is right around the corner from the heart of Northern Liberties — the shopping and dining district along North Second Street. The Schmidt’s Commons and Liberties Walk are two blocks north of you, and Spring Garden station on the Market-Frankford Line is a short walk away as well.
THE FINE PRINT
SQUARE FEET: 1,313
SALE PRICE: $425,000
OTHER STUFF: The unit comes with a deeded parking space in its enclosed garage, but as this address has a Walk Score of 97, you may not be using your car all that often. Its sale price was reduced by $5,000 on March 15.
