On the Market: New Construction Condo in South Kensington
This unit in the second phase of the Kensington Yards project offers distinctive style and some nice features at an affordable price.
Looking for an attractive first home in a great neighborhood? Want new construction?
Today’s your lucky day.
This condo is located in the Kensington Yards development on South Kensington’s western edge. It’s part of the development’s just-completed second and last phase.
Designed by Bright Common, this project combines new construction and historic preservation in one stylish package. The first phase, which includes the historic preservation part, is fully occupied, but you can get in on the ground floor with this unit.
Actually, make that the second floor. This condo for sale occupies the space that includes the eyebrow-shaped window you see in the exterior photo above.
That window floods the main living space with light, especially in the afternoon.
The open main living area combines kitchen, living and dining rooms in a highly efficient arrangement.
Off the living room area you’ll find your own private covered deck.
The kitchen has Energy Star-rated GE appliances, an island topped by reclaimed wood and a poured concrete countertop with built-in drainboard.
The bedroom has plenty of closet space, and there’s even more in the entrance hall leading to it.
The bathroom has a reclaimed wood vanity. Like the kitchen countertops, it’s locally made.
And in addition to your private outdoor space, you have access to the courtyard all 14 of the units in this project share.
This condo for sale is also convenient to local shops, eateries and recreational facilities: there’s a playground just up the block, the acclaimed Helm restaurant is close by, and both Girard and Frankford avenues and Front Street are a short stroll away.
