Privacy, tranquility and serenity are just a few words to describe what this rarely offered corner unit at The Residences of Dockside has to offer. This totally renovated 3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom flow-through condo of nearly 2000 sq ft offers some of the finest elements of today's most convenient and luxurious lifestyle. Coupled with combined waterfront AND city views, this condo is truly a one of a kind property! Starting with the highly sought after open floor concept, the unit has pristine hardwood floors throughout, a gourmet kitchen, custom fitted California walk-in closet and is book-ended by terraces and breathtaking views. The expansive Main Bedroom Suite features beautiful hardwood floors, LED lighting, custom sconces, large walk-in his/her California Closet and terrace just off of the main sleeping area. The Main Bathroom Suite features tiled shower with angular body sprays & glass doors, full length mirror, LED lighting & sconces over the vanity, granite countertops, tiled vanity wall and decorative basket weave floor tile. For those of us who are working (or schooling) from home, bedroom #2 is such a wonderful large area that it is presently being used as a professional office that can accommodate 3 full sized desk, bookshelves and even a sitting area. Bedroom 2 (or office) also has access to a terrace to step away from work for an outdoor breather or just to take in the beautiful days or starlit nights. Bedroom #3 is large in scale, has hardwood floors, large windows overlooking the city, window seating with excellent natural light, and custom overhead lighting, and is just across the hall from full bathroom #2 and laundry. The guest Powder Room does not disappoint with its modern design featuring glass bowl sink, sleek vanity and decorative tile flooring. The gourmet kitchen features granite counters, marble subway backsplash, under-cabinet lighting, bar nook, wine rack, Viking stove, stainless steel appliances and private terrace. The Main Living area is the true definition of a free flowing, open floor concept. With continued uniformed hardwood flooring, the combo living area features an in-wall electric fireplace, crown molding with cove lighting, overhead LED lighting, window seating and breathtaking wrap around views of the waterfront, PA, NJ and the famous Philadelphia skyline. Exit the main living area via sliding glass doors to a large terrace where you can entertain friends and family with views that cannot be replicated elsewhere in the city. Imagine the feeling of having your own personal space year after year to witness unobstructed sky views of fireworks from "The Birthplace of America" on the 4th of July! Or host gatherings and/or special celebrations in the newly renovated Clubhouse with its wraparound outdoor deck or inside with kitchen (for catering), entertainment area, billiard area and sound system accommodating approximately 130 guests. In addition, Dockside is conveniently located minutes from the Philadelphia International Airport, 30th Street Station, public transportation, routes 95 & 76, bridges to NJ and steps (or an Uber/Lyft ride) away from famed restaurants, bars, museums, entertainment venues, walking/biking trails, historic sites and so much more!! Last but certainly not least, this fully renovated condo comes with TWO (2) deeded parking spaces and 24hr gated security. If you are looking for easy, luxurious living with gracious outdoor spaces, private parking and you do NOT wish to be amongst the many crowded high rise buildings in the city...this is the one for you! This gem of a building sits alone on the waterfront and this particular corner unit gives you the feeling of openness as you are not staring at the side of another building, construction or obstructed views. This unit offers a true sense of open space, peace, tranquility and serenity within the city limits. Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity. A MUST SEE!!
