Lookin’ good

A Fitler Square home located near the edge of Schuylkill River Park has come out of hiding after undergoing a top-to-bottom renovation, and it looks better than ever.

Prior to the makeover, led by architect Monica McKay, the red brick home at 2530 Pine Street sat behind a wooden fence, set back from the street. The fence has now been removed, showing off the home’s new paint job, new custom door surrounded by cedar, and black slate stone deck.

The transformation inside the three-bedroom, three-bath home is just as impressive. The home’s parquet floors have been replaced with French Oak hardwoods, and a metal staircase railing has been swapped out with a new wood railing painted in the same dark gray as the original wood-burning fireplace in the corner.

Two of the three bedrooms are located on the upper levels and each have access to their own bathrooms. The master suite on the third floor has cathedral ceilings that stretch up to 15 feet tall. And here’s a hidden feature: The house is rigged with dual-split heating and cooling systems so that you can manage the temperature in the bedrooms separately from the main floor.

Finally, out back there’s a deeded parking spot. A renovation of a home in this prime location in Fitler Square doesn’t come cheap: The asking price of the home is $1,199,999.

There’s an open house on Saturday, October 7 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
