On the Market: Fresh in Francisville for $499K
This recently built condo has an excellent location, the usual complement of contemporary style and features, and a skyline view that can't be beat.
Looking for a home with room for a growing family (or your work) but only have so much to spend on it?
You could do far worse than to consider this upper-floor bi-level condo in a two-unit townhouse in Francisville.
Since its current owner broke it in for you, you get all the new-construction advantages without having to worry about shaking out the new-construction bugs.
Those advantages include up-to-date bathrooms and kitchen, large windows that let in plenty of light, and a bunch of modern features like the energy-saving ceiling fans in every room of this home.
The kitchen boasts soft-close cabinetry, quartz countertops and a stainless-steel gas range, and the open-plan main living area it’s part of makes entertaining easy. A balcony off the living area lets you take the entertaining outdoors — one of two such spaces in this home.
One of this home’s three bedrooms and a hall bath are also on this floor.
The upper level has two bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom is skylit via clerestory windows and has a full tile stall shower in its bathroom.
The other outdoor space lies one level above this. The roof deck offers a fantastic view of the Center City skyline and comes all ready for your use, as the furniture and grill are included in this sale.
You can park your car in the space in the rear of this building, but you won’t have to use it as much as you might elsewhere, for shopping, dining and basic neighborhood stores all lie within easy walking distance.
