    Description

    Welcome to 2538 Brown Street. A rare opportunity to not only own an incredibly beautiful and charming brownstone in the heart of Fairmount within walking distance to the art museum, Kelly Drive, and countless incredible cafes and restaurants, but a home that has been completely renovated from head to toe by the renowned builder Kostas Macos as noticeable by this home?s timeless architecture and historic details. As you enter your new home through the quintessential Philly style vestibule, you are instantly greeted by an abundance of natural light that fills the first floor open concept layout where you will find your living room, dining room and kitchen. The first thing you will notice as you enter this home are the prominent and meticulously maintained original wide plank hardwood floors from the 1920's that extend throughout the entire house. You will also notice how spacious this home feels with its 9ft ceilings and oversized 18ft width. As you walk through this home, you will also see the meticulous attention to detail that preserves the spirit and history of this classic home from the Spanish inspired tile lining the gas fireplace to the chair rail and wainscoting throughout. You will also find that there was no expense spared with a top of the line kitchen with GE Monogram Pro Range / Range Hood, Stainless Steel Appliances, granite countertops, double sink and a French door to a wonderfully updated and private patio, perfect for a home garden and all of your entertaining needs. On the second floor, you will find two spacious bedrooms with ample closet space, an office that was converted into a laundry room and a fully renovated bathroom with granite countertops, travertine floors and full soaking tub. On the third floor, you will find a humongous master suite as it spans the length of the entire house with separate and private access to a roof top deck with views of center city for days! The master also boasts 3 closets, 2 with built-in closet systems, a large bathroom with his and her sinks, oversized shower, and custom cabinetry. The house does not stop here. There is also a fully finished basement complete with extra storage space and closets perfect for a child's play room or man/woman cave! The basement also has additional hook ups for your washer and dryer should you want to convert the upstairs laundry back to an office. With a new roof that was just resealed in 2019 and newer mechanicals, this house will be maintenance-free for years to come. Come see it today as it won't be here long.
