Just Listed: Updated Naval Square Condo in Grad Hospital
This spacious tri-level condo is sunny and bright thanks to its location on the top of its townhouse. But it also comes with a basement.
No doubt you’ve gotten tired of hearing that cliché about the three most important features of a piece of real estate. Haven’t you?
Well, you’re going to hear it one more time, because the best thing about this updated Grad Hospital Naval Square condo for sale is its location, location and location.
Specifically, its location on the top two floors of its end-unit rowhouse.
The end-unit bit is important because it means that most of the rooms, including all of the main floor, get extra light from windows on two sides.
And the top-two-floors bit is important for the same reason: Thanks to the totally open main-floor balcony, even more light pours into the rooms.
In addition to its location, this unit has its floor plan to recommend it: It’s an extra-wide 23 feet.
Only 10 years old, this condo looks like new. But it’s old enough for its kitchen to have gotten a total makeover.
Before you get to the kitchen, the stairs leading to the third floor deposit you in the totally open main living area, combining a spacious living room and a dining room accented by a Tech Lighting chandelier.
The dining room table is a distinctive piece of furniture, and it’s expandable. You might wish to inquire if you could purchase it.
Beyond the dining room lie the kitchen and casual dining area. The casual dining area has enough room to accommodate a work desk.
And the kitchen is brand-spanking-new, redesigned by Matthew Ferrarini with plenty of Shaker cabinets and storage closets, a built-in bench window seat, quartz countertops, top-drawer Thermador appliances, a restaurant-grade range hood, and bar seating at its island.
In back of the kitchen and casual dining room is a balcony that looks out on the surroundings.
All of the three bedrooms on the upper floor have vaulted ceilings that add to their spaciousness.
The primary bedroom’s en-suite bathroom includes a granite-topped dual vanity and a separate soaking tub and shower stall.
This condo also comes with a bonus: It includes the basement of this rowhouse. Down here, you’ll find a den that doubles as a fourth bedroom thanks to its built-in Murphy bed.
You’ll also find a playroom tucked under the stairs and plenty of storage space in three large closets. The included cabinets by the front door give you even more storage.
You also have access to the community’s 20 park-like acres studded with trees, picnic areas and gardens. These make a great setting for historic Biddle Hall, the former naval retirement home that’s the centerpiece of Toll Brothers’ first major development in the city.
Inside Biddle Hall, you’ll find a clubhouse in its rotunda that you can reserve for parties and special occasions.
And just steps from your door are the fitness center and pool. Also just steps away is Naval Square’s rear gate, giving you easy access to the Schuylkill River Trail. Out the main gate, you’ll find plenty of shopping and dining options, including the local supermarket, just up Grays Ferry Avenue.
Which means that this Grad Hospital Naval Square condo for sale offers not only location, location and location, but great amenities, too.
