Property Description

Welcome to 503 Fairmount, the most unique property on the market in Northern Liberties. This home has now been completely renovated with high-end finishes while maintaining original architectural features and character. Consider an early 19th Century historic home renovated in 2014, with subsequent upgrades including a gourmet kitchen with wood burning brick oven; finished basement including a powder room, home theater and a wine cellar; and a beautifully landscaped patio. There is no house in Northern Liberties that can compare. Featuring 4 bedrooms (one currently used as a den)and 3.5 baths, the volume of indoor and outdoor space will have you mesmerized. When you enter, the 12' high ceilings and natural light will immediately welcome
you as you take notice of two of the four fireplaces with mantles carved from King of Prussia marble; a quarry which is no longer in existence. The pair of fireplaces provide elegance and distinction to the living and dining areas. Follow the original wide board pine floors that run throughout the house to your brand new custom chef's kitchen showcasing Wolf and Subzero appliances, granite counter tops and a wood burning oven direct from Italy. The view from the kitchen is absolutely breath taking as you overlook your outdoor oasis on the composite and brick patio which includes an outdoor kitchen with a tandoor oven, wine chiller, and custom grill. The dining area is covered with a pergola for summer shade and privacy and the garden area is walled in historic brick. Just off the kitchen the elegant staircase leads you to the master bedroom with en suite bath, custom built-in closets as well as a walk in closet and 10' high ceilings. On the same floor is a hall bath with tiled shower and the den. The third floor features a large 2nd bedroom, a laundry room, and a spacious bath. The fourth floor houses the 4th bedroom under the eaves with north and south facing dormers and a utility closet with one of two HVAC systems. After dinner, an unassuming staircase leads you to your retreat: a state of the art 10 seat home movie theater complete with 9 channel in-wall digital sound. If you're not in the mood for a film, you can spend the evening in your 600 bottle wine cellar complete with dual zone wine refrigerator and highlights of the home's original architecture. This renovation was designed by an architect and an interior designer. Two years of pre-paid parking is included in the purchase price of this extraordinary home.
