Northern Liberties Modern Townhouse Condo for Sale
This very spacious townhouse condo boasts a unique layout, original design and space, and features that make entertaining a delight.
On the outside, this Northern Liberties courtyard townhouse condo for sale might not be much different from the multitude of Modernist townhouses that have sprung up in neighborhoods across the city.
But the choice of materials on the exterior and its location should tell you that this is not your luxury garden-style townhouse condo. It actually has a design and a number of features that make it a real asset.
One of those remarkable features comes from its non-standard design and layout. In the photo above, this condo consists of the three-story garage wing that ends the yard and the four-story wing that is part of the row of townhouses to its left.
This means that upon entering the house you are not greeted by a small vestibule or narrow hallway leading beyond the garage to a den or guest bedroom. Instead, you enter a spacious den with the two car garage to your right and an en-suite guest bedroom to your left. This room also has its own cobblestone patio just outside.
The next attractive feature is the extra large ground floor of an upper level. The stairs to the ground floor take you to the dining room, which has a balcony and an adjacent shower room.
The chandelier above the dining room table should also catch your eye. This one and the one that is equally striking on the kitchen island come from Bocci, a Vancouver and Berlin-based manufacturer of unique, artist-designed custom lighting. Owner Jeremy Aikey says these two fixtures were designed by a Canadian artist who produces “unique works of art in blown glass.”
Sounds correct to me.
Coffer and tray ceilings and Shaker cabinets in the kitchen add a traditional touch to this otherwise highly modernist space. The kitchen has additional features for entertaining including a Wolf six-burner range, Wolf double wall and convection oven, Sub-Zero wine cooler, Scotsman ice maker and a 10ft by 10ft island sleeping eight.
The third floor contains a huge master bedroom and a second en-suite bedroom. The master bedroom includes two large walk-in closets and a sumptuous bathroom.
Like the fireplace in the sunken living room, the shower and bath in the main bathroom are finished in Porcelanosa tiles.
On the fourth floor you will find the fourth bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a living room with a wet bar and the first of the two roof terraces of this house.
The upper roof terrace features a partial green roof, gas fireplace, and panoramic city views.
On top of all this, there is a fully finished basement that could be used as a media room, gymnasium, home office or a combination of these.
Another very attractive feature of this house is its location near the heart of Les Libertés du Nord. You are just steps away from all of the area’s best restaurants, Liberty Lands Park, Freedom Walk and Piazza. A large supermarket, liquor store and two stations of the Market-Frankford line are further away and are also within walking distance. This makes leaving your car at home most of the time a real option.
This luxurious Northern Liberties modern townhouse condo for sale is one of the most intelligently designed and equipped modern homes I have seen in recent times. You would also be smart if you made this place your own. Especially if you like to cook and entertain.
