Just Listed: Bi-Level Condo in Northern Liberties
Why they call this building "Stonehenge," we may never know. But we're sure you will also celebrate the morning sun as it pours through your windows.
Four times each year, neo-Druids, pagans and other assorted religious adherents converge on a circle of stones in southern England to mark the passage of the sun the way the ancients did. This world-famous ancient place of worship, burial and astronomical observation is known as “Stonehenge.”
Whatever relation this four-story brick-and-steel condominium facing Liberty Lands Park in Northern Liberties has to the actual Stonehenge eludes us completely. Yet the locals have given it that name as well.
And if you’re a sun-worshipper, we strongly suspect that this east-facing bi-level Northern Liberties condo for sale will appeal to you a great deal.
Why? Because it sits on the top two floors of the building, and the building sits across Third Street from Liberty Lands Park. That means that every morning, you will get a full dose of sunshine pouring through the nearly-floor-to-ceiling windows and blasting you out of your slumber.
Except on cloudy days, of course.
This condo offers more than lots of sunlight, though.
It has a totally open main floor with a powder room and a balcony overlooking the park. This space makes entertaining super easy.
It has a well-laid-out galley kitchen with breakfast bar ceiling.
It has two commodious bedrooms, both with organized walk-in closets. The master bedroom also has an en-suite bathroom.
The building also has an attractive lobby, an outdoor patio and a partially covered parking lot. With this condo comes a deeded parking space in that lot. But given that it’s easy for you to walk anywhere you’d want to go in the neighborhood — its two supermarkets, the restaurants on Second and Third streets, shops and boutiques here, clubs in Fishtown, two Market-Frankford Line stations — you may decide you can dispense with owning a car.
