ONE OF A KIND VINTAGE FISHTOWN MANSION - They just don't make them like they used to. Built in 1899 by J. Macauley's Sons, this absolutely beautiful 3-story Victorian features stunning original woodworking in almost every room, original tile, hardwood floors, stained-glass windows, and an ELEVATOR! Lovingly preserved, you just don't find opportunities like this every day. In its current configuration, the 5 bedrooms are being used as 3 bedrooms and 2 changing rooms for a sense of luxury not often found in today's cramped city living. This is an absolute must see. You'll begin in the foyer, greeted with original tile inserts and charming stained glass french doors. To the left you'll see the parlor/living room with original wooden molding, trim, and fireplace with tile insert. Pass the masterfully carved banister, beyond the working elevator to your right, and enter the formal dining room. Marvel at the craftsmanship of the tile and woodworking of the second fireplace and corner china cabinet. Through the kitchen you'll find a mudroom, half bath and quaint patio space to complete the main level. Take the elevator or the stairs to the second floor where you'll find a full bath and the first three bedrooms. The largest with a lovingly preserved built-in wardrobe made with the same attention to detail you've become accustomed to here. On the third floor are two more bedrooms, great as is, or large enough to potentially combine into a sprawling master suit. In the partially finished full basement you'll find ample room for all your storage needs and perhaps a late night card game with a speakeasy feel. Located near SEPTA, 95, and all of the shops, restaurants, and cafes that make Fishtown the "hottest neighborhood in America," you can be in the thick of it, and still feel light-years (or at least centuries) away from the cookie cutter crowd. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, don't let it pass you by.
