Close to Dickinson Square Park and cafes like The Dutch, Creme Brulee Cafe, and Grindcore House, this long 2-story home has an open floor plan with lots of space and natural light. Completely renovated throughout, the home has a new high-efficiency HVAC system and new PEX plumbing, and electrical upgrades including new panel, upgraded 200 amp services, and warm white energy-efficient LED lighting throughout. All bedrooms are also wired for center fixtures, which are switched separately from the recessed lights. The home features engineered hardwood throughout and wood-look floor tile in a herringbone pattern in the full finished basement (with laundry area). High ceilings throughout the home give it a spacious feel and plenty of windows throughout allow for an abundance of natural light.
The first floor features a custom kitchen with peninsula seating, a dining area, a living room with built-in shelving, and exposed brick throughout. Windows along the side wall and sliding glass doors to the gigantic rear yard let in an abundance of natural light. The kitchen features white cabinetry with brushed brass hardware, Samsung appliances, quartz countertops (they look like marble but without the scratching and stains!), and a white herringbone back splash. The rear wall of the kitchen to the yard features reclaimed wood, which is also echoed in the wood shelving in the kitchen. The kitchen has pendants over the island and under-cabinet lighting, and the dining room features a brass mobile chandelier. Tucked away near the living room is a powder room with black hexagon tile floor, vanity with storage, and white subway tile accent wall.

This room also features exposed brick and a reclaimed wood wall, which also appears on an accent on the sliding barn door to the walk-in closet. There, you will find plenty of storage- with hanging rods, hooks, built-in drawers, shelves, and shoe storage, and a full-length mirror. Two other spacious bedrooms can be found on this level, both with natural light and large closets, and there is also a linen closet in the hall.

Situated in Dickinson Narrows surrounded by new development, this home is close to parks and cafes, and only a short walk to all of the restaurants, bars, and shops that East Passyunk has to offer.
When our clients purchased this historic Chestnut Hill beauty, the main house was painted all different shades of pink and orange, and had outdated kitchens and baths. The once dazzling ornate trim was faded and the master suite lacked a closet worthy of such a gorgeous house. The carriage house next door was sectioned off into small rooms and the floors were in desperate need of restoration. We worked with the new owners to combine the simplicity of their own mid-century modern and Scandinavian styles with the extravagant architecture of the house, resulting in a truly beautiful and unique design.
Situated in the heart of East Passyunk overlooking the Singing Fountain, this 3-story custom home by Hestia Construction will be featured on an upcoming TV show! The property has been completely gutted and renovated from top to bottom, to combine the best of the unique original structure with the comforts and high-end design of a brand new home. The home has its original brick facade with arched transom and ornate front door, all of which have been thoughtfully restored. Inside, however, everything is brand new, including electric, plumbing, and HVAC (which features a 92% efficient gas furnace with central air and Nest thermostat). The bright first floor features an open floor plan with high ceilings, exposed brick walls, gas fireplace with marble surround, brass light fixtures, iron railings, and tons of windows and natural light. The kitchen has white Shaker-style cabinetry with patterned cement tile backsplash, quartz countertops, brushed brass hardware, and island with seating and West Elm pendants. Under-cabinet lighting, stainless steel appliances (including French door refrigerator and wine fridge), garbage disposal, and range hood are also included. There is a large yard, with brand new fence and large planting bed. The 2nd floor features 3 good-sized bedrooms with exposed brick walls and large closets. The full bathroom on this floor features a cement tile floor, tub with white subway tile walls, and high-end Kohler fixtures and vanity (with custom white Carrara top). On the 3rd floor you will find your master suite, equipped with two large closets, exposed brick, and gas fireplace with reclaimed wood surround. The ensuite bathroom is accessed through a reclaimed wood sliding door, and features black/white patterned cement tile, freestanding tub, double vanity with white quartz countertop, black mirrors with polished chrome sconces, and shower with custom glass surround. In the finished basement you will find a porcelain tile floor that looks like hardwood, laid in a herringbone pattern. There is a laundry area with white Shaker-style cabinetry, front-loading washer and dryer, and brushed brass hardware. 10 year tax abatement applied for. This home has everything that you could want- tons of outdoor space, high-end design, natural light, and plenty of bedrooms and living space- all in the very heart of East Passyunk, with its boutiques, award-winning restaurants, and cafes!
With shag carpet and a tiki hut in the basement, this vacation home used to be a step back in time. Our client chose beautiful bright finishes, white-washed floors, and carrera marble to bring this window-filled beauty into the 21st century.
The day that I bought this property, it was pouring rain. I excitedly ran back to the house after settlement to begin to draft a design plan... only to find that the house was completely filling up with water! Needless to say, a lot of work went into this one to make it what it is today. Lots of bright light from the many windows and skylights, exposed brick, clean white marble, reclaimed wood, and green plants make this house a natural oasis in the heart of South Philly.
At just 700 square feet, this tiny row home on an adorable little street in South Philly packs a lot of design in a small space. We loved working with this creative client to bring her bachlorette pad to life!
These new homeowners couldn't wait to update this home with their elegant mid-century modern design. Renovations included exposing a brick wall, new oak flooring and stairs, custom bookshelves, light fixtures, and a master bathroom update.
