A premier residence on one of the City's most lovely blocks--Little Fitz--a quiet tree-lined street with colonial homes. 130 & 134 Fitzwater is an extremely rare Center City find on a double lot with a standalone garage, and a bonus building. Custom built and superbly curated for a most discerning owner (completed in 2015)--on two very private lots. This 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home also offers a capacious, open family room and a comfortable den; GARAGE Parking; a 34' x 19' rear yard; a huge, brand new roof deck (2020) with skyline views, outdoor kitchen, and hot tub; and an off-street courtyard entrance where family and friends can park their bikes, play, garden, and just enjoy the extra land. The lot also includes a separate one room structure with half-bath, perfect for an office or exercise room. It has a basement for extra storage or that could be fully finished (this structure could also be reconfigured or rebuilt, and the lot is a fully separate and buildable lot). The main house offers wide-plank Italian oak hardwood floors (sustainable from Stile) and artisanal and custom quality tasteful finishes and woodwork throughout the home. Designed for spectacular light throughout the day. Enjoy an open (1st floor plan) with 14' ceilings, a 35' x 32' footprint with a remarkable Henrybuilt Kitchen System (Miele, Sub-Zero, all custom) with family eating area, and a huge open living and dining space with a wood burning stove. All of this is open to a 35' wall of glass overlooking the huge, landscaped garden. Also, a large entry area with seating/shoe storage, a walk-in coat and large storage closet, and a half-bath. The high ceilings and hardwood floors continue on the (2nd floor), which offers a private primary suite with a spa bath with radiant floors and steam shower. Large, open den/office. The (3rd floor), also with really high ceilings and hardwood floors, opens to a huge family room and offers 3 large bedrooms attached to 2 full baths. The finishes throughout are superb, and offer the finest in taste, quality, and craftsmanship. The roof deck is the third significant outdoor space, as it expands the entire footprint of the home with full panoramic views. Constructed in 2020, the roof deck was built and designed by acclaimed Philadelphia design firm Tallulah and Bird (PHS South Street Pop Up Garden, Chestnut Hill Beer Garden). The trellis and side boards were built using partially reclaimed and refinished barn beam wood from upstate Vermont. The built-in garden box spaces include automatic irrigation. Enjoy the Northern Lights cedar wooden barrel hot tub as well as the outdoor kitchen with gas grill. This is truly an oasis with skyline views. With a 93 WalkScore, this location offers the best of all worlds- quiet street with colonial homes and virtually no car traffic (plus regular neighborly block potluck gatherings). Walkable to all that Queen Village and Society Hill have to offer. Notes: The home includes a deeded, totally private garage space on the adjoining lot. Enter the courtyard from a gate on Little Fitzwater Street. 3-zone HVAC. Nest thermostats. Lutron dimmable light switches throughout. Wired for sound with ceiling speakers throughout. Ample storage. An important Philadelphia residence in the MEREDITH School Catchment. TAX ABATEMENT through 2027.
