Sitting between Passyunk Square, along the banks of the Delaware River, and close to Queen Village, resides a neighborhood known for its gentle character, secret treasures, and many friendly neighbors. Enter Pennsport, a section in South Philadelphia that despite being as tucked away as it is, still maintains a strong presence in Philly. This is probably due to its diversity and high number of restaurants, unwavering dedication to its parks, and welcoming attitude of many brand new and immaculate homes- 105 Manton Street being one of them.
Located close to the waterfront, just minutes away from the Delaware Expressway and Center City,105 Manton Street is a contemporary tribute to Pennsport that holds many intricate details associated with the neighborhood, while adding another facet with a modern day spin.
This 3 bedroom 2.5 bath corner home features flawless bamboo flooring throughout, and a wide open living and dining room, perfect for entertaining. It’s also home to a gorgeous kitchen with custom cabinetry to store and present delicious party appetizers and drinks. And with the tons of natural light that it provides, the sun and stars will be sure to provide the beautiful lighting and ambiance.
Complete with 2 bright bedrooms with a plethora of closet space and a 3rd floor master suite, it also includes a contemporary master bath that features double vanity granite countertop and a tile stall shower with glass enclosure.
Head to the beautifully finished basement with high ceilings and charming powder room, and you’ll also be surprised with an amazing space open to being turned into a den, office, or family room.
Climb upstairs to the huge roof top terrace, and you’ll find why the exterior gives the interior a run for its money. Sunrises and sunsets, stars, and fireworks have never been so easy and so comfortable to watch! Yet step out of the one of a kind home and you’ll find an endless amount of shops, restaurants, and parks that give Pennsport its fun and bold character.
What to do?
Enjoy the modern luxuries of Ikea. Surrender to the handy fixes of Home Depot and Lowes. Or call upon the tech savvy geniuses at Best Buy- all minutes away from the gorgeous property.
Love food? Head to “The Ugly American” on Front and Federal Streets, a “New American Bistro” serving local and delicious foods with a funky, new- day edge with nuances of Latin American, Mediterranean, and Asian cuisine. Or, visit “Federal Doughnuts” located at 1219 S. Front Street, which offers everything from mouth watering doughnuts with too good to be true toppings to savory, fried chicken (and every order of chicken includes Japanese cucumber pickles, a honey donut, and is served with your choice of dry seasoning, wet glaze or naked). Or, get a closer look at the Waterfront, all while enjoying Southern rhythm and blues, warm hospitality, and premier dining and nightlife at “Warm Daddy’s.” Its 100 seat dining room sits in full view of the 18′ x 18′ main stage where live music is held nightly. And every Tuesday you can enjoy local talent as they bear their southern soul and talented hearts out.
Perhaps you enjoy more down to Earth play. If so, head to the Mummer’s Museum on 2nd and Washington. A dedication to the Philadelphia celebration of the new year, the museum houses a rich collection of mummers’ paraphernalia and memorabilia, including spectacular costumes- a few of which date back to the turn of the 20th Century. For greener pastures, head to newly redone Dickinson Square Park, with a “turn-of-the-century layout” and beautiful features, that prove to be picturesque any time of the year. Or wave in your family and friends at Herron Park Spraygroud, where sets of sprayers spout from the pavement, pour down from poles, or arc across the space. It also features places to climb, skateboard, spin, and more!
As one can see, this neighborhood has plenty of hobbies, menus, and play to offer. Handpicked, the newly constructed 105 Manton, is the perfect compliment to Pennsport.
