Welcome to the Onion Flats, one of Fishtown's first sustainable projects just a stone's throw from the shops, restaurants, boutiques and coffee shops of Frankford and Girard Avenues and public transportation.
With its brick facade salvaged from a mid-century rag factory, Onion Flats was featured in DWELL Magazine. The home's green atributes and unique architectural design incorporates three popular Philly styles: the rowhome, loft and trinity. An electronic gate allows access to the unit's common parking area with green pavers and a rainwater collection system. A stunning steel gate welcomes you to your private flagstone terrace with lovely low-maintenance plantings perfect for al fresco meals and cocktails. Two large sets of sliding glass doors make a seamless transition to open living and dining rooms for entertaining. The European gourmet kitchen boasts gorgeous locally mined ribbon slate and loads of cabinet space. The bamboo and slate floors feature radiant heated and the high ceilings and carefully placed windows allow light to abound throughout, all while saving energy. The second floor offers a Master Suite with plenty of closets, a full bath and additional sliders which open to a huge, sunny deck. Ascend the custom, locally-designed and welded raw metal staircase to the 3rd floor with two more bedrooms and full bath. Wait, there is more! Imported European split stairs lead to a roof deck and magnificent city views. The finished basement has a sustainable cork flooring, high ceilings, a laundry room, utility closet and a great space for a home office or studio. The entire house has been freshly painted. Other green features include solar panels with separate meters and a common green roof area.
