When an interior designer puts their personal touch on a newer construction home by one of Philadelphia's best builders, magic happens. Add an urban oasis in the form of an attached (buildable!) lot and you've officially found The One. Gone are the sterile, run-of-the-mill finishes associated with new builds and in their place is a truly custom, warm and welcoming home with a gathering space at every turn. Spread out over multiple split levels, each family member gets their own private space while glass panels lining the stairwells, large windows and tons of community areas keep everything connected and cohesive. Built by Roland Kassis and outfitted by the Widell + Boschetti design firm, the home features many to-the-trade-only light fixtures, specialty wallpaper and hand-painted tiles you won't find anywhere else. Starting with the entrance off sweet little Myrtle St, you're welcomed into the formal living room where custom wallpaper, built-in storage and blinds set the tone for the luxury and style found throughout. Head down into the gourmet kitchen featuring a full-wall soapstone accent--this is no mere backsplash--and countertops, warm wood flat-front cabinets, a miles-long center island highlighted by three stunning pendant lamps, and stainless steel appliances including a Viking Professional refrigerator and cooktop alongside Bosch range and cabinet-front dishwasher for seamless integration. This ultimate chef's kitchen is paired with a nice-sized dining room with matching floating cabinets and sliding doors leading to the huge yard, creating perfect flow for indoor/outdoor entertaining. The attention to detail carries over here as well; with an ipe wood fence and matching custom banquette, pet-friendly ForeverLawn and perennials, all you need is a projector for movie nights on the opposite wall. Back inside, the lower level of the home, while technically below grade, can hardly be described as a basement; its soaring ceilings, stone accent wall and large windows make it an inviting den or playroom. The powder room on this level has Phillip Jeffries vinyl wallpaper, a marble-topped wood vanity and sleek geometric sconces. The bedrooms occupy the top three floors with the ultimate master retreat at the top. Starting with a dressing area, there are custom built-in closets and a luxurious en-suite bath with freestanding tub, extra-wide walk-in shower and dual floating vanity. The sleeping area wows with a metallic Phillip Jeffries wall mural, and the adjacent landing and balcony provide the perfect yoga nook to complete the serene setting with a vaulted ceiling and porthole window. The other two bedrooms are spacious and sunny and share a gorgeous hall bath with Kelly Wearstler hand-painted tiles to complement the reclaimed wood accents and vanity. There's an additional open-landing den/TV room with another sweet balcony and custom ceiling wallpaper. Even the laundry room, which is tucked behind a custom barn door that matches the one in the master, is perfectly appointed, with its large window overlooking the yard, built-in cabinets and crisp houndstooth wallpaper. As if over 3,000 square feet of meticulously designed living space weren't enough, enjoy off-street parking in the attached garage to enjoy a car-free commute to all that Northern Liberties has to offer.
