Northern Liberties is the Philadelphia neighborhood where past and future mix things up most thoroughly. Laurel Court (above), now complete at Second and Laurel streets, fits right in that mix.
We’ve been following the progress of this project since ground was broken, and now that four more units in this nine-unit complex are on the market, we thought it was high time we gave you a look inside the finished product.
This uber-contemporary secure luxury development designed by Atrium Design Group features six townhomes with real personality and flair, as each unit has a distinctive layout, lots of space and loads of luxury features.
The unit you see here, for instance, includes a striking, two-story-high living/dining room with a gas fireplace, a balcony overlook from the floor above and plenty of light from the huge windows that help define the space and the sliding doors leading from the living and dining rooms to the rear deck.
Adjacent to the main room is a sleek, European-style kitchen fitted with stainless steel Thermador appliances, under-cabinet lighting, your choice of granite or quartz countertops, and an island with bar seating.
There’s also a family room, laundry room and hall bath.
Two more bedrooms are located on the third floor. One is the sumptuous master suite, outfitted with 10-foot-high ceilings, two walk-in closets and a spa bath with oversize shower and separate soaking tub. The fourth bedroom also has its own bathroom as well as plenty of light from south-facing windows.
Above all this is a sun-drenched roof deck, accessed via a pilot house equipped with a wet bar.
And below it all is a finished basement with a radiant heated floor and full bathroom that can be configured as you wish. There’s the option of a guest bedroom, or you can use it as a media room or home theater, or storage space, or some combination of these and more.
Throughout this luxurious home you will find hardwood flooring, recessed lighting, solid core doors and large windows. A dual-zone HVAC system ensures maximum comfort, and there’s garage parking for two cars via a car lift in the garage.
While the unit shown here has been sold, there are four equally stunning ones now available at Laurel Court. The location is as attractive as the home: Liberty Lands Park is just up the block, and some of the city’s best and liveliest restaurants are all around you on Second Street, at the Piazza, on Liberties Walk and on Third Street.
These townhomes are large and luxurious. We're featuring one of the largest of them: it has five bedrooms (including the optional guest bedroom), five full and two half bathrooms, and 3,975 square feet of interior space. It's like nothing else in Northern Liberties, and it lists for $1,125,000.
