Property Description
Welcome to 2238 Alter Street! The first of 3 entirely unique, artisan designed townhomes, constructed of steel & concrete, is now available! Efficiency, sustainability & structural integrity form the foundation to the thoughtful design, beautiful materials & custom details throughout. At apprx 3200 sf, this property is 18' wide and 4 stories tall. Enter the 1st floor through the front door or pull into the 1-car, heated garage (complete w/100amp electric car charger). The first of 4 BRs, as well as a full BA w/shower, is located on the 1st floor w/direct access to the fenced backyard which has plenty of room for gardening. Continuing up to the 2nd floor, the wide-open living room/dining room/kitchen has wall-to-wall windows on the northern exposure, & 2 large windows on the southern exposure for an abundance of natural light from the front of the space to the back. A huge, modern kitchen features stainless steel countertops, a 9' cooking/dining peninsula & contemporary chandelier lighting. The custom exhaust hood & stainless steel cabinetry is inset w/solid, native PA hardwood. High-end, stainless steel, energy-efficient appliances (refrigerator, dishwasher, induction range) are included. Proceeding up the laser-cut metal staircase, the 3rd floor is portioned into 2 spacious BRs, a full BA w/tub & the laundry room, complete w/front-loading, full-capacity washer & dryer. Each BR provides space-saving closets which pivot out & unfold, providing an excess of storage. The front BR has wall-to-wall windows & the rear BR has a large, double-casement window. The 4th floor features the Master Suite, complete w/walk-in closet & en-suite BA w/Mirabelle deep soaking tub & shower. Walk out sliding glass doors onto the deck for one-of-a-kind views of the Center City skyline (the deck can also be accessed from the hallway w/out entering the Master Suite). The basement of this home is fully heated, insulated & waterproofed to provide another large, open living space for a family room, den, office, playroom, or clean, dry storage. This home is heated by a fully-enclosed, radiant system in each floor. Spray-foam insulation throughout the home further reduces excess heat loss. Cooling is efficiently handled by 2 hi-SEER split systems. The standing seam steel roof & architectural metal siding is highly durable & maintenance-free. Located one block off Washington Avenue in the northern Point Breeze neighborhood, this property also comes w/10-year tax abatement.
