In the heart of the Art Museum Area on a low-traffic picturesque street stands a rare detached STAND-ALONE rowhome. There are no shared walls! This new construction contemporary brick home with a facade designed in a classic Philadelphia rowhouse style was CUSTOM BUILT for the owners and includes a four-stop ELEVATOR and remote-controlled deeded TWO-CAR GATED PARKING directly in the back of the home. One of the parking spaces is OVERSIZED for large vehicles. The home has wide plank natural white oak flooring, 10-foot ceilings on the first floor and 9-foot ceilings throughout, large casement Andersen 400 series windows, two-zone HVAC system upgraded in 2020 each with its own dehumidifier to keep you cool and comfortable-controlled remotely via Honeywell thermostats-and is pre-wired with an ADT security system with keypad door locks, including a front and back camera and Ring video doorbells. The front and back entry are protected with LARSON security doors and SecurePro™ security screens for windows which is the toughest screen on the market, keeping your views intact while protecting you from unwanted guests. There are custom window shades throughout the home and blackout shades in all of the bedrooms. Enter through the front door into the open concept living room, dining room, and kitchen with a huge center island with quartzite countertops, custom cabinetry, and a glass backsplash. Top-of-the-line appliances including a Wolf gas range and hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator with a built-in water filter, ASKO dishwasher, and a built-in drawer microwave round out the modern chef's kitchen. Also on this floor is a powder room for your convenience. Walk up the floating metal staircase to the second floor where you'll find two generously sized bedrooms with extra-large closets and a shared marble bath with heated floors. The laundry room features an Electrolux washer and dryer and is also located on this floor. The third floor encompasses the master suite and includes a sitting area/home office, two custom California Closets® systems with built-in soft-close drawers, and a SPACIOUS master bathroom with a large standing shower with a seating area, whirlpool bath, double sink vanity, and heated marble floors. The private roof deck with views of city hall and the art museum features a stainless steel and stone countertop kitchen which makes dining under the stars-and watching the Fourth of July fireworks-a breeze! On the home's lower level is a finished basement with a FULL MARBLE BATH making it a perfect gym, home theater, play area, or in-law suite. Every floor of the home was thoughtfully designed by the current owners for easy city living. It is child and pet-friendly, too, with custom retractable built-in gates at the stairwells (though the home is pet and smoke free). The sellers recently improved upon the construction of the home by correcting window installation deficiencies, installing a sump pump in the basement, upgrading stucco with James Hardie fiber cement lap siding where needed, putting an additional coat of fiberglass and gelcoat on the roof, and thoroughly testing existing stucco to ensure that the home is properly protected from water intrusion, a common but costly problem in Pennsylvania. The Fairmount neighborhood is mixed with long-time residents and young families and is walkable to museums, parks, coffee shops, restaurants, and shopping. One block walk to the 48 and 32 bus stops and easy access to major highways. Two hours to DC or NYC by Amtrak train. TAX ABATEMENT GOOD THROUGH JUNE 2027. Move right into this spectacular one-of-a-kind home where pride of ownership abounds and enjoy city living at its finest!
