This nearly 3200 sq.ft townhome is tucked away on a historic cobblestone carriage street leading you to the front door of one of just a handful of homes developed in a gated community within Northern Liberties. An exclusive enclave of seventeen town homes with oversized two car garages and green roofs is nestled on a rare garden block. Upon entering through the custom designed automated gates on Lawrence street, the drive leads you to a motor court where you will find homes of smooth graphite brick, aluminum composite-clad facades, green roofs and multiple outdoor spaces of Trex decking. With wide planked Brazilian Tigerwood flooring throughout, this home boasts three spacious, private, sunlit bedrooms, all en-suite, which are outfitted with Porcelanosa vanities, Grohe fixtures, and Toto toilets including the powder room off of the living room. With an open concept thoughtfully designed, space throughout the home, ceiling heights range from 9'-14' including a fully finished lower level featuring a media room and an additional unique and expansive flex space that could be used for a gym, home office, play room or storage. The home is outfitted with Pella Architect Series windows, custom hand made steel stair railings and floating staircases made with the utmost attention to detail. Atop this gracious home sits the pilot house with a custom built in wet bar and quartz counter top that is perfectly suited to supply your outdoor entertaining or relaxation needs while over looking everything in Center City from the Ben Franklin Bridge to the downtown skyline, across the best view of Fairmount for firework displays throughout the year and the golden dome of St Nicholas. The entire home is efficiently and comfortably lit with 4" recessed LED lighting, there is a Sonos sound system and speakers built into the ceiling in every room throughout every level of the house. A comprehensive security system with outdoor cameras, multiple receivers inside the home that run a video security communication intercom system and Nest thermostats controlling the dual zone high efficiency Lennox air conditioning and heating all monitor the home for your peace of mind and comfort. A copious array of Poggenpohl kitchen cabinetry line the kitchen walls with Thermador Professional appliances, luxurious quartz counter-tops and custom glass infused backsplash all surrounding a 9 foot island to prep dinner, work on or simply gather around with friends and family. While the home provides an abundance of privacy it is extremely conducive for entertaining as well with the purposely designed split floor plan. The very affordab HOA fee covers common area insurance, lighting, maintenance and snow removal. This unique home is situated so you are secluded from the sounds and hustle of the City yet with a walk score of 95, you are just a few minutes walk away from some notable points of interest such as Cafe La Maude, Honey's Sit 'n Eat, Federal Donuts, Green Eggs Cafe, Liberty Lands Park, City Fitness, Community Gardens, notably ~Orkney Park~, various dog parks and childrens playgrounds, Yards Brewery, Target, The Fillmore, SugarHouse Casino and the MFL line at Spring Garden which will have you to Suburban Station in 5 stops.
