On the Market: Newer Tri-Level Condo in Fishtown
If you enjoy exploring Fishtown's bar and restaurant district, you couldn't pick a better base camp for your forays than this condo for sale.
In case you’ve been sleepwalking through the last two years or so, Fishtown’s southwest corner has become one of the city’s hot spots for diners and drinkers. You can chomp your way up Frankford Avenue, dining on cheesesteaks at Joe’s, barbecue at Fette Sau, fancy farm-to-table fare at Kensington Quarters, sophisticated Lebanese dishes at Suraya, and a world of other dining choices in between. Or you can drink your way down it, indulging your inner wino at Fishtown Social, getting all German and hoppy at Frankford Hall, knocking back a few to the sound of live music at Johnny Brenda’s, then sobering up on coffee at La Colombe.
And we haven’t even gotten over to Front Street yet.
Maybe you lament that you can’t just camp out on Frankford Avenue. Maybe you worry about that drinking-and-driving stuff (though why you would drink and drive with the Market-Frankford Line and Route 15 trolley right there mystifies us). Maybe it’s just far enough away to be inconvenient for you.
This recently built condo for sale just off Frankford Avenue on Thompson Street solves all of these problems. And not only that, it could become your own personal night spot.
That’s because it’s ideally configured for entertaining as well as relaxation. Its open main floor has plenty of room for dining and relaxing…
…along with a nicely outfitted kitchen with quartz countertops and a breakfast bar.
Downstairs, along with the laundry and a full bathroom, you’ll find a finished room that you could set up as a media room or rec room. Or if you don’t plan on partying that much, it could be a home office, gym or storage space.
Upstairs, you’ll find your private retreat in the form of a spacious master bedroom with a huge walk-in closet and a bathroom with double vanity and walk-in shower.
And in back, there’s covered parking for one car with direct access to your unit.
But given this condo’s location, you can probably leave it parked most of the time. You certainly won’t have to worry about drinking and driving, and you probably won’t have to do much driving at all, given everything that’s in close proximity to here.
