    Description

    This 7 bedroom home has been newly finished with MANY unique touches including heated tile floors in every room, polished exposed brick walls, floating stairs, recessed shelving, hand-made concrete counter-tops, custom-built bamboo cabinets, 10-foot high structural bookshelves, floor to ceiling mirrors, and end-grain wood tiles in the halls!With 7 full-sized bedrooms, 2 of the rooms have loft-bed spaces built into the ceiling, which can double for storage, and 5 of the bedrooms also have closets, recessed shelving, and hammock-hooks. Each room has both wired Internet connections as well as wifi, for high speed reliable Internet. There are ample electrical outlets too, with around 20 outlets per room. The basement room has 8 Internet connections, 26 outlets, and an overhead projector, so it can double as a home office or movie room!There is a lot of extra storage space throughout the house. In addition to all of the shelves already mentioned, the kitchen has 11 cabinets and four wide shelves. There are also two integral loft cabinets in the dining room and two more in the hall. There is also a stairs leading to a partially finished attic, which already has outlets, lighting, smoke alarms, carpet, and drywall installed.The basement has high ceilings, a lot of storage shelves, recessed lighting, a wood-stove to cut down on heating costs, and the sound-proofed home office mentioned above. There is a French drain underneath the basement floor running the full length of the house, emptying into a sump pit to keep the basement dry. The basement has also been mold-proofed and water-proofed.Both roofs have recently been completely replaced right down to the wood with new roof decking, asphalt, and silver-coating. There is a door opening onto the rooftop with a perfect view of the city skyline, as well as the Delaware river, and beautiful sunsets. Independent Day is especially amazing from the roof, with fireworks in every direction around you!The home is energy efficient. With all in-floor heating, the gas-furnace has no trouble keeping the entire house warm in winter at low cost (we usually spend about $200/month on heating). The entire house has also been insulated using hybrid closed-cell foam along with fiberglass insulation, for both draft protection as well as thermal protection, both in summer and winter. In addition to all this, all of the windows have recently been replaced with new windows, and the roof has been silver coated to further reduce energy costs. Also, the new on-demand water heater saves energy on hot water, and the new PEX plumbing has been insulated to save on heating and to avoid having to run the faucets waiting for the water to get hot.There is a large garden across the street full of fruit trees, and there are also fruit trees bowed down with delicious fruit in front of the house as well as in the backyard. In addition to service-berries, peaches, and pears, the backyard also has blueberry bushes, grape vines, and asparagus plants growing around the edges. There are slate walkways through the yard, and ample mulch to keep the yard weed-free.Additional perks include: the front side-walk was just re-poured last year, there are laundry areas and hookups both on the second floor as well as in the basement, the kitchen has a regular sink and a laundry sink, and there is a third laundry sink in the basement. There are also hot, cold, and sewage connections in place for a fourth bathroom in the basement if desired. The house also has a 400-amp electrical service with two panels, so there is still room for expansion! And for peace of mind, a hard-wired security camera system is functioning on the property. Lastly, the garden across the street provides a lot of extra parking space on the block!With a great location right next to Temple University and housing demand from students, this house could be used as a rental property, or you could decide to live here yourself and make it your home.
