It’s all in the details when it comes to this recently rehabbed Queen Village home. The home was originally owned in the 19th century by a trio of workmen that included a craftsman, merchant, and a ship captain. Today, as an ode to the property’s history, the renovated home blends its original character with new, modern finishes.
The home has a first-floor layout that’s unusual for the typical South Philly rowhome. The new kitchen, for example, is located in the front of the room, immediately to the left of the foyer. Even more so, the kitchen is slightly raised off the home’s original pine floors.
Upstairs, the master suite is actually located on the second floor. It has its own impressive bathroom with a walk-in shower with two showerheads and a big soaking tub.
Perhaps one of the coolest spaces of the 1,700-square-foot home is the attic, which was converted into a loft-style room. Here, the attic’s original hardwood floors were repurposed and and now adorn the ceiling, cabinet top, and the windowsills.
The asking price of this three-bedroom, two and a half bath home is $599,900.
