For the past four years, the current owners of this Fishtown home have worked to transform a dated property into a stylish, contemporary home. Now, it’s on the market with a price tag a little less than double what it sold for in 2014.
Although the first floor of the 1,906-square-foot home always featured an open floor plan, it’s now much brighter thanks to a paint job, new kitchen cabinetry, and a new-and-improved chandelier in the dining area. The hardwood floors have also been sanded and stained.
The glam continues throughout the 3-bedroom, 1.5-bath home, especially in the living area behind the kitchen, which has gold-painted radiators and another chandelier. The mudroom behind it, which the current owners added, leads to a big backyard deck.
Listing agent Joshua Ellis says the owners really did a standout job keeping the original details while progressing toward modern.
The asking price of the home on E. Montgomery Avenue, within walking distance of two schools and multiple restaurants, is $429,500.
