Description for 972 5TH Street Philadelphia, PA 19123
Astounding opportunity in Northern Liberties... A great price for over 2,500 sqft but there is a considerable catch: the meticulous renovation has ended and remaining projects will be your opportunity to customize. Handsome brick facade w/ sculpted brownstone water table, beautiful cornice, and the high quality Pella windows. Formal entry foyer crafted in custom marble slab with 8 foot Pella door & transom. Front parlor delights with a blend of old & new... Original heartwood pine floors, contemporary exposed brick, massive 10 foot x 10 foot custom built-in for electronics/library, in-ceiling surround speakers. A cozy ventless gas fireplace w/ formal mantle & marble tile hearth. An assertive lighting plan highlights your gallery wall with recessed cans, plus tasteful sconces for ambience. Wainscoting wraps the entire room plus a custom 5-piece(!!)crown moulding. Nearby, coat closet and a half bath, almost complete. Large dining room with china closet. Large eat-in kitchen (functional but ready for a facelift) with access to a laundry room/pantry. Huge windows overlook the back yard planted with mature grass and raised flower beds. Egress to side yard via quaint potter's shed, also connecting conveniently to street through shared breezeway. Situated in the heart of the home, a dramatically curved staircase soars all the way to the third floor. 2nd floor front features large, sunny bedroom complete w/ built-ins and ornate mouldings. 2nd floor laundry nearly complete. Plans for large hall bath... rough plumbing is in. 2nd Floor rear: huge bedroom suite, could be subdivided- largely original condition but some windows replaced. Some work completed on the third floor too: an inviting bedroom with a large connecting bath ensuite. Large unfinished basement storage space with remarkable ceiling height. Considerable efforts made to upgrade home's infrastructure. Spray foam insulation on exterior walls and between floors. A 2-zone 96.2 efficiency Lennox HVAC system currently services the rear of the home. Water heater was replaced with a large, efficient model. Roof was replaced in 2012. New electrical service line. So much more to see in person. When you pick up the momentum and complete the work with your desired finishes you will truly have an architectural gem in one on Philly's most desirable neighborhoods. Please note work will not be completed prior to closing, as-is sale. Cash purchase or construction financing required, not suitable for conventional loans.
