Welcome to 984 North 5th Street. Located in one of Philadelphia’s most sought-after neighborhoods, this home is a 4–5-bedroom home, with 2 bathrooms and is approximately 2500 square feet. Originally constructed in the 1800’s, 984 North 5th Street provides exquisite attention to detail and beauty, which has been treasured and impeccably well taken care of and flawlessly maintained over the years. The curb appeal abounds from this remarkable Federal-style 3 story 18-foot-wide home, offering beautiful brickwork, as well as all freshly painted exterior doors and trim work. As you enter this magnificent home, the 1st floor features a traditional foyer with Lincrusta wall coverings and two beautiful locally commissioned etched glass transom windows above the striking solid wood front door with large glass allowing loads of natural light flowing through and through the foyer area into the home. Just beyond the foyer are two huge solid wooden French style doors opening to a generously sized living room with a most spectacular marble mantel, as well as exquisite trim work and moldings. The recently updated kitchen with composite countertops offers all brand-new never used appliances and lies just beyond the living room, and it too has a marble mantel. The next room most recently served as a dining room with a locally crafted corner cabinet and has an additional set of stairs leading to the 2nd and 3rd floors. Slightly beyond the dining room, the home opens to one the most splendid secret patio sanctuaries that is glorious at all times of the day, complete with red brick pavers, tiered gardens with mature plants, trees and more, and offers a functioning fishpond and an outdoor covered dining area with a ceiling fan. Newer windows throughout the home afford copious amounts of natural light to flood this splendid home. Beyond that, the pumpkin pine flooring all of which was recently stripped, refinished and is in perfect condition. The radiators have exquisite details throughout the home & are gorgeous. As you move upstairs to the upper levels via the sweeping Federal-style stairs, there are a multitude of bedrooms and bathrooms. The first of two ensuite bedrooms is located on the 2nd floor and offers a lovely bathroom with penny tile floor with a full-size top loading washing machine and dryer. There are two additional rooms on the 2nd floor that may also serve as bedrooms, work from home space etc. Just off the 2nd floor there is a balcony with a trellis; simply delightful and is a great spot for relaxing, reading & coffee. The 3rd floor offers an additional very large ensuite bedroom with a charming clawfoot tub/shower combo, black and white penny tile floor, natural wood trim work and wainscoting. The 3rd floor also offers an artist studio that could conceivably be returned to a bedroom, playroom, home movie theatre, yoga studio, etc. There is also a small bonus room on the 3rd, complete with a refrigerator and sink, most recently used to supplement the artist studio. The home offers great storage throughout and if the 2500 feet of above ground living space isn’t quite enough, there’s an entire full basement. All mechanicals are positioned in the lower level, including a newer water heater and gas furnace. Many recent upgrades including a new roof, new double pane swing in windows including new trim and sills, all new kitchen appliances, range hood, faucet and more. For a list of improvements, please see attached. Perfectly positioned, this home is near some of Philly’s best restaurants, cafes, bars, breweries, parks, boutiques, entertainment and so much more. Very easy access to multiple grocery stores, markets, pet stores, as well as Interstate 95, 676 & 76 highways. There are numerous public transportation options, including Indego Bike Share, the Market Frankford El, trolleys, bus stops and others.
