SoPhilly Spotlight: Industrial kitchen edition

Not only does this home have your run-of-the-mill renovations, but it also some special details that set this home apart from the rest. With an industrial-style kitchen and some kitschy detailing with decoupaged newspapers, this week’s SoPhilly Spotlight has some pizazz to it.

This three bedroom, one bathroom, 1,076 sq. ft. home at 528 Watkins St. is currently on the market for $195,000.

More from the listing:

Here’s what happens when a super-stylie European renovates what was once a typical South Philly rowhome. Sure, you get sensible updates including new hardwood floors throughout, main-floor laundry and a so-fresh-and-so-clean bathroom update.

But you also get a kitchen archway decoupaged with vintage newspaper found in the house (!), great light fixtures and ceiling fans throughout, and a one-of-a-kind industrial-cool kitchen.

A sweet vestibule with vintage tile and glass-paneled door leads into the bright, wide-open living/dining room which flows into the large eat-in kitchen with a restaurant-grade freestanding stainless steel sink, pro-style gooseneck faucet, Liebherr bottom-freezer refrigerator and Boos butcher block.

Out back is a patio easily twice as big as most in the area, without the concrete block walls you’ve come to expect–instead there’s horizontal wood-plank fencing, and a rain barrel for container gardening.

Upstairs is the spacious front master bedroom, a sweet south-facing rear bedroom and a middle bedroom that’s usable as an actual bedroom–the current owners expanded the closet to help create a killer dressing room.The hall bath has crisp white beadboard walls and pedestal sink and nice oil-rubbed bronze fixtures.

This home’s awesome Dickinson Narrows location, with Dickinson Square Park and Grindcore House coffee a couple blocks from the front door, means you can also take advantage of everything in East Passyunk, as well as Pennsport’s ever-growing number of businesses: Moonshine, the Industry, the Beer Boutique and soon-to-open Wild Burrito, to name a few.

    Cozy, warm, love the choice of colors. And that kitchen-wow!

    Interesting house but the kitchen is not for me. It lacks storage and counter space.

      I agree w/ Constance, kitchen is horrible, merely “flashy-looking”, not functional; however, the house is not bad for the price, surprised it’s still available.
