Brokerbabble describes this Girard Ave townhome as an "Outstanding Artist's Retreat" located in Northern Liberties. It's located directly on the northern border of NoLibs, and "artist's retreat" might be a stretch: this is a landmark on Girard because of its fabulously tacky exterior (there's a wrought iron horse fountain), and the interior is nothing less than a perfect sequel to the "beautiful iron terrace with original fountain art work"
There are undoubtedly some nice features in this place: the deck looks lovely, and the loft, exposed brick, and location would be nice for an artist. The downstairs commercial space is currently in use as a gallery, and an artist could take advantage of the street level space for display and sales. However, there would be quite a bit of work in store for anyone who decided to take this place on.
Size: Three bedrooms, three and a half baths.
Amenities: Strange round floor fixtures, exposed brick, a lovely roofdeck, one of a kind wrought iron exterior art, countless wall decals, a loft, and a downstairs commercial space.
Asking Price: $525,000
