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!
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 paint was chipping away, 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.
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.
