Nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac in Germantown, Krummstes Haus is an incredibly picturesque carriage house. Plucked from a fairytale, this home is move-in ready! Visitors are welcomed to Krummstes Haus by a lovely custom art installation in the foyer. The installation is an homage to the work of Louise Nevelson, and was supervised by famed French artist and poet, Louise Bourgeois. Beyond the foyer lies an open plan living area, complete with original wood floors. The spacious kitchen spills into the generously proportioned living room and dining area. Upstairs, is the master suite, complete with full bath, bedroom, and sitting room. All three rooms on the upper lever are quite spacious, and some clever reconfiguring could easily yield an additional bedroom. On the lower level of Krummstes there is a second bedroom with access to the rear courtyard, as well as an immaculate and bone-dry storage room/workshop, which contains the half bath. Krummstes Haus has been extraordinarily well-maintained over the years. The building, which functioned as a garage and plumbing supply shop during most of the 1900s, was converted in the late 1980s to a recording studio and archive. During the conversion, the entire building was gutted and thoroughly soundproofed, resulting in a nearly silent retreat from city life. The current owner had plans drawn to build a third floor on the property, which would result in a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home, if executed. The current roof has views of Center City, so the potential 3rd floor could have stunning views. The entire roof was replaced in 2018, stripped to the rafters and rebuilt. Think Krummstes Haus sounds like home? Call/email/text Alex today to schedule a showing!
