One of a kind Mixed Use: store/office and 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 half baths, residential duplex located in the hottest part of East Kensington/Fishtown. This century old 3 story, with charming curb appeal is a dental office on the 1st floor and residential home on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Let's start from the exterior. This brick front home retains all of its original beauty with an outstanding decorative cornice, a large decorative bump out bay window on the 2nd floor and we absolutely adore the arched transom front door. Enter in through a common vestibule. To the left is the office. It is approximately 1,000 sf with waiting area, several rooms, and a half bath. The rear yard is accessible from the pedestrian alleyway. The alleyway is completely covered and enclosed and very well constructed. It leads out to the backyard. We love the yard! It is vine covered, fence enclosed with a 30+ year old weeping Japanese Maple - very highly regarded tree. The full unfinished basement is accessible from the office. From the vestibule there is also an entrance to the 2nd floor residential portion of the property. The residential portion is approximately 1,620 sf. The 2nd floor has an enormous front living room (18 ft wide) with hardwood floors that stretch to the kitchen and hall, a working fire place and mantle. The dining room is in the middle of the home with ample space and plenty of natural light through 2 windows. The kitchen is well maintained with original wood cabinets, an electric cook top an built in wall oven and pantry. Plenty of counter space and abundant floor space to create an eat in kitchen. There are two full baths, one on the 2nd floor and one on the 3rd floor, both have mostly original tile work and finishings and there is also upper level laundry. The 3 bedrooms have mixed flooring materials and we believe the original sub floors are probably solid wood. This home has is approximately 2,620 sf in totality, the lot is 18'x85' deep, it has separate utilities, radiator heat, and some ceiling fans. Located in an area that is absolutely exploding with 1/2 million dollar+ new construction being built. It is close to an emerging commercial corridor on Frankford Ave. that provides cafes, restaurants, fitness, and a variety of shopping venues. All of this makes 2132 E Cumberland a very walk-able, bike-able, and enjoyable location to live.
