On the northern edge of Fishtown, a 100-year-old home is offering two styles, combined: a sleek, contemporary home, as well as some original, early 20th-century touches.
The four-bed, three-bath space on 1525 Montgomery Avenue, which just came on the market for $699,000, has a lot of draws in its 3,000 square feet of space. First, there’s the fact that it’s fully renovated, with 11-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, and industrial/contemporary light fixtures.
There are a lot of original details to the space as well, which give it that early-1900s feel, like the marble (now decorative) fireplace in the living room, which sits under an ornate, carved wood mirror. Upstairs, a master bedroom features an impressive, original dresser, with carved wood details.
The home last sold for $625,000 in 2018, and a listing at the time shows the stark difference thanks to the recent renovation. Gone is the carpeting and the former kitchen; and several details throughout the space have been touched up.
