Fishtown real estate is hot. In fact, the trendy neighborhood was named Philadelphia's most competitive market for homebuyers in 2015 by Redfin, a residential real estate company. Surrounded by farm-to-table restaurants and coffee shops, homes in Fishtown spend a scant 23 days on the market before they're sold.
These two Fishtown spots were just recently listed on Zillow, and we think you'll find them...off the hook.
Backyards are rare, but a front spot of grassy space is a real gem in this city. Relax under your covered porch admiring the garden and watching passersby, or keep the kids and dog safe while still getting some Vitamin D in the summer.
This $300,000, three bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom house hasn't gone the way of current architectural trends of sleek, nearly ascetic simplicity. Instead, you'll find inviting details, like the hardwood floors and exposed brick, sliding pocket doors and a hand-crafted steel banister on the steps.
But it doesn't skimp on the modern amenities: the kitchen features stainless-steel appliances and a garbage disposal, and out back, there's a custom pergola and build-in stainless gas gril, sink and concrete countertop prep area
The master bath is like a personal spa, with radiant heat tile floors and his and hers closets.
Not like you'd want to, but if you ever had to leave, this home is conveniently located near Fishtown's restaurants, bars and outdoor spaces, and a quick drive to Interstate-95.
Two words: rooftop deck.
Yes, this two-bed, one-bath home has the ultimate in real-estate space. In addition to the backyard, which according to the realtor could get even bigger, the lucky homeowner can kick back on their rooftop spot and take in the Center City skyline.
On the market for $249,000, this townhouse features all the charming details a homeowner would love to have: spacious bedrooms and closet space, recessed and pendant lighting, subway tile walls, honeycomb tile floors, stainless steel appliances and leathered granite countertops.
Plus, Fishtown faves Loco Pez, Memphis Taproom, Pizza Brain and Greensgrow Farms are all within walking distance.
