This is what you come to Fairmount for! 1940-42 Wallace is a bi-level 2-bed, 2-bath corner unit condo in a wider-than-average Fairmount brownstone with all of the original charm. It has deeded secure parking, a roof deck, enormous north-facing windows, and west-facing V bay windows, all of which are new energy efficient wood windows surrounded by original floor-to-ceiling molding. On the second floor is the master bedroom, which has more massive windows and a gorgeous working marble fireplace. Both bedrooms have updated full bathrooms attached, and the master bath also has a separate door to the main hallway. The large private roof deck with uninterrupted views of the skyline and the fireworks was rebuilt in 2017 with composite decking, custom iron railings, and an automated plant watering system. The kitchen has a double-wide granite counter that is great for prep space or for dining on stools from the living/dining room side. This unit is well-maintained and thoughtfully updated, from the new HVAC system and hot water heater (installed in 2013) to the no-maintenance planks on the deck and the concrete tile back splash in the kitchen. All this and your own private storage area in the basement. The only thing you need to do is schedule the movers!

Art Museum Area
The focus of the Art Museum Area/Fairmount neighborhood is self-evident: The Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Rodin Museum, the Barnes Foundation, the Franklin Institute, the Academy of Natural Sciences, and the Please Touch Museum — let’s see, have we forgotten any? — are all located in this vibrant, beautifully planned part of the city.
