Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

Palmer Street. Your dreams are a reality. This jewel box of a home is positioned on one of the most coveted 90' deep lots in the heart of Fishtown. That's 40' deeper than your standard lot size in Philadelphia. In addition, the exterior of this home has been updated including freshly re-painted brownstone and a shiny coat of paint to the front door. The exterior facade is a beautiful example of classic row home architecture with pretty details from the past. Many features and desirable amenities have been lovingly preserved both inside and outside this 19th century townhome. Upon entering, find a sweet sitting room for formally receiving guests, or for use as a quiet seating room lit naturally by the oversized windows and adorned by an antique Second Empire mantle-piece and built-ins. Beyond the stairs and French doors find a second living room that opens to a large, brightly lit kitchen and dining area that seamlessly extends to the garden. The kitchen is stocked with extras including a high end Italian Bertazzoni oven and range. Imagine your indoor/outdoor living. The parties and holidays you can host for your bubble will flow throughout your first floor. Just outside the home, don't miss a gardening shed convenient for outdoor storage. The yard is easy to maintain and can be your oasis in the city. BBQ, safely hangout with friends, and plant flowers and vegetables. Upstairs you'll find a spacious bedroom with a fancy nook you could use for sunning houseplants, as a classic vanity for getting ready in the morning, or a nice quiet built-in office. The 2nd bedroom has a deep closet and transom windows for extra light. Just beyond, there's an extra large bathroom with storage, great light, and plenty of room to move around. More value can be found in enjoying period-specific hardwood floors throughout, new windows, new roof, and a freshly parged basement. The heater is old but works great. To quell any concerns, the seller is providing a home warranty to cover issues that may arise during your first year of ownership. All this and a spectacular location near the gorgeous new play yard at Adaire and the scenic walk around the cemetery via Belgrade, Palmer, Memphis and Montgomery. You'll only be 150 steps from outdoor dining at the bars, shops and restaurants on Girard and Frankford. Ditch the car or keep it. Parking is manageable or take public transit if you need to go further than a stroll. Busses and subway stops are very near. In Philly, this house has all you can ask for and more.
