A chic corner home in Kensington that was built just two years ago is on the market with a $475,000 price tag.

The bright and airy property at 109 W. Oxford Street was built by developer Roland Kassis, who has dominated Fishtown's boom with both residential and commercial projects, including this industrial-style home and as well as La Colombe, Frankford Hall, Fette Sau, and countless others up and down Frankford Avenue.

The three-bedroom, two-bath home stands out from its brick-laden neighbors on Oxford Street as a three-story home clad in metal paneling and brick. Inside, floor-to-ceiling windows bathe the living area and kitchen in natural light.

Unlike many new builds that dominate the neighborhood, this 1,592-square-foot property manages to add some warmth to the home with wood accents, with finishes like a shiplap wall in the living room and oak countertops in the kitchen.

The home also has both a back patio and large roof deck.
