Weekend Open House Roundup 9/5-7: North By Northwest


Trendsetters, listen up! We’re taking a look at some open houses in northwest Center City today – arguably the hippest quadrant around. If you’ve been seeking a nest in red-hot Brewerytown, Fairmount, or the Art Museum Area, one of these beautiful homes could be just right for you.

922 N Bambrey St
2 beds / 2 baths, 648 sqft
Open House: Sunday, September 7th: 11:00am to 2:00pm
Adorable, cozy home in trendy Fairmount! I absolutely love that there’s a rear patio – outdoor space is the best. Also on my list of favorite things: a cute kitchen. This townhome has it. There’s also a full basement, which is ideal for storage. None of this is even to mention how close you are to everything here.

884 N Stillman St
2 beds / 1 bath, 840 sqft
Open House: Sunday, September 7th: 1:30pm to 3:00pm
Possibly the cutest house in Fairmount, seriously. From the cheery yellow downstairs to the tree-shaded back patio, I’m fairly certain this is about the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen! There’s lots of details original to the 1914 construction, but with all the modern updates you could want. I’d consider this a “must see.”

859 N 27th St
4 beds / 3 baths, 1,804 sqft
Open House: Sunday, September 7th: 1:30pm to 2:30pm
This home is as lovely and elegant as a fashion plate, with built-ins and crisp white crown molding galore. Three floors of gracious spaciousness fill the interior, which has been beautifully restored. There’s a back garden through French doors, the perfect space for entertaining. It comes with six months of prepaid parking as an added incentive!

2707 Cambridge St
3 beds / 3 baths
Open House: Sunday, September 7th: 12:00pm to 2:00pm
New construction! A 10-year tax abatement! A roof deck overlooking Brewerytown, easily one of Philly’s most exciting up-and-coming nabes! Complete customization options! It’s hard to speak about this home without abusing exclamation points, that’s for sure. Love the finished basement with heated tile floors, along with just about everything else going on here.

792 N Pennock St #1
2 beds / 1 bath, 1,030 sqft
Open House: Sunday, September 7th: 12:00pm to 1:00pm
This two-level condo in the Art Museum Area offers the best of city life with the quiet and privacy you crave in your personal enclave. It’s ready to shine with a bit of loving care, making it the perfect investment, or just a great bargain to turn into your dream home. I really love the airy light well, which sends sunshine down to the lower level.
