The Fishtown home of the founder of Greensgrow Farms is now for sale, complete with beautiful backyard oasis.

One would expect nothing less at the home of Mary Seton Corboy, who founded Greensgrow Farms in Kensington in 1997. She lived at the home at 241-43 E. Wildey Street for 15 years before passing away in August 2016.

The home is priced aggressively at $425,000, which listing agent Joseph Fonash said was purposeful. The property is not certified historic, but the estate wants to ensure that the property remains as is, he explained.

There’s a lot to like about the property, which originally started out as two separate residences. It was then combined into a single home, and today clocks in at 1,438 square feet and features two bedrooms and 1.5 baths.

Everything about the home makes it feel like it belongs in the Pennsylvania countryside, not smack dab in the middle of Fishtown. There are four fireplaces—one that is two-sided—and the living room has plenty of windows that look out to the large backyard. Corboy spent the past 15 years tending to the yard, which features a koi pond, flower beds, and a colorful custom-built shed.

There will be two open houses on Saturday, April 8 from 1 to 3 p.m. and Sunday, April 9 from 1:30 to 3 p.m.
