Behind its familiar white-walled, wood facade—common in many South Philly homes—1024 Addison Street hides an entirely unconventional interior.
The 1,800-square-foot home, which offers three beds and three baths, was renovated by its previous owners with the themes of nature and meditation in mind. That’s evident beginning on the first level, where the owner sought to embrace a “stone theme” with concrete floors and steps as well as a small meditation or yoga studio.
The second level is the “wood and forest” floor, which holds the kitchen and dining room as well as a unique design element that the owners dubbed a “utility tree.” The all-wood sculpture comes out of the kitchen countertop and has planks of wood—reminiscent of branches—that radiate out across the exposed beam ceiling. The tree acts as a storage space for small items like pens and pads of paper.
The third floor, which holds two of the bedrooms is the “atmosphere level.” It’s an all white space with glass doors and bright chandeliers, meant to enhance the feeling that you’ve stepped into a cloud. Travel up to the final floor, which the owner deemed the “mind” level—it doubles as a bedroom area and art studio, and has access to an outdoor patio.
The home was once a midcentury modern space but has been renovated over the past 10 years, during which solar panels were also added to the roof. In addition to its $699,000 asking price, the home has HOA fees of $29 per month.
If you want to check the home out for yourself, there’s an open house Saturday from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
