On the Market: A Cut Above in Point Breeze for $450K

You've seen new homes like this one before. But you haven't seen them outfitted this nicely at this price.

I can hear you yawning as you open this post and take a look at the photo above.

“Another new home in Point Breeze with one of those projecting window bays in front,” you’re saying. “Show me something you haven’t shown me a thousand times before.”

Okay, I will. Come on inside.

Main floor

As Ludwig Mies van der Rohe told you, “God is in the details.” And it’s the details on the inside that set this brand-new home apart from the hundreds of others like it now being built all across the city.

The builder of this home decided it was worth spending a little more on the fixtures and fittings in this home, and as a result, it stands a notch or two above other homes in this price range.


Take a look at the kitchen, for instance. It boasts gray contemporary Shaker-inspired cabinets with frosted glass china-closet doors, a quartz-topped waterfall island, and a bar with a wine rack and more frosted-glass china cabinets. Over that island you will see a more-stylish-than-the-norm light fixture — no trio of pendant lights here. And the high-end appliances are black stainless steel, putting this kitchen on the cutting edge of a trend.

Master bedroom

Or go up two floors and check out the master suite on your way to the roof deck. You’ll find it has a tray ceiling with a stylish ceiling fan and huge windows. (One of the second-floor bedrooms is similarly styled.)

Master bathroom

Master bathroom

The master bathroom is all dressed in marble and boasts a Shaker-inspired vanity topped with vessel sinks, a modernist soaking tub and a roomy glass-enclosed marble-tile shower.

Roof deck

Then fix yourself a drink at the wet bar on the way up to the roof deck and take in the great view of the Center City skyline.

Now aren’t you glad you dropped by?
