Once in a lifetime opportunity to own a classic Philadelphia warehouse residence that has been renovated and restored to a modern piece of art. This is the site of the former Eskimo Knitting Mill and currently the first two stories is a fully functioning Architectural Salvage business housing reclaimed historic and classic treasures from days past. The top floor is a contemporary style oasis with 2,664 meticulously renovated square feet flooded with natural light from the four walls of massive windows that brighten and warm the totally open concept space that has a soaring 15 foot high cathedral ceiling with skylights. The kitchen is centered around the huge, curved island made out of reclaimed wood, maple cabinetry, and topped with a custom poured and stained concrete countertop. Other highlights of the kitchen are Grohe fixtures, 42" maple cabinetry, a natural gas cooktop, a double wall oven, hanging pendant lights, a stainless steel fridge and reclaimed pressed metal enameled countertop. The kitchen's Raja Indian Slate flooring extends through the 5 piece bathroom, laundry room and master closet which are divided by radius plastic and metal half wall partitions for an open air modern vibe. The bathroom features a cast iron floating tub with Grohe fixtures, a Toto toilet and bidet, a zinc paneled shower stall, and a wall hung Italian sink. A barn style sliding door made from reclaimed church windows opens to a massive walk-in closet/laundry room combo, which leads to the secluded master bedroom space with a juliet balcony. Radiant floor heating throughout provides a comfortable journey through your one of a kind home that could easily accommodate the addition of one or more bedrooms. There is a security and storage room and a vintage elevator shaft room with exposed brick for more of your storage needs. More incredible features of the top floor are birch wood paneling on the vaulted ceiling, mahogany paneling on all walls, spray foam insulation on all walls and ceiling for maximum energy efficiency, mahogany doors with Rocky Mountain Hardware, newer TPO roof, custom steel open stairs, super low utility costs and so much more. The first floor extends into a massive storage/workshop that was once leased by Temple University. Space is abundant and the ideas are endless. House the business of your dreams or create a mansion in an excellent location. So many possibilities await for the buyer that can truly appreciate world class features and design.
