About 2517 MEMPHIS Street

Renovated by a husband/wife design-build team for their own family, this home was customized with a mix of new and reclaimed materials that create a super cool and super functional space; add to that the off-street parking and an entire buildable lot for a backyard, and you've got the whole dream of a package. The main floor is designed to create maximum utility and storage galore, with multiple zones for lounging, working, cooking and dining within the open layout. Both the floors and ceilings are finished with unique wide-plank wood, and theres a mix of recessed and industrial-cool lighting throughout, plus a sleek wood ceiling fan over the living area. The expanded galley-style kitchen with loads of clean white flat-front cabinetry, one of which is a Fisher &Paykel dishwasher drawer, has custom concrete counters with integrated drainboard. Past the kitchen there's a proper mudroom with bonus cabinets, a laundry area and a full bath with steampunk shower fixtures, ceramic tile shower surround and built-in shelving. The rear door leads to the too-good-to-be-true outdoor space: an additional 18x45-foot lot composed of a large yard and private parking separated by a fun reclaimed wood fence. Garden tools, yard games and grilling gear can be kept in the attached shed, which has a utility sink and bonus fridge. Want even more outdoor space? The second floor has a lovely private rear deck perfect for enjoying morning coffee or sun salutations. The largest bedroom sits at the front with farmhouse-chic painted wood floors and ceiling, a double-wide closet and two windows. The other two bedrooms are similar in size and share the same wood floors and ceiling. The hall bath has fun teal penny tile floors, a frosted window for privacy and a perfectly fitted white vanity with vessel sink. The sellers also took the time to update the less-glamorous items, so the new owner can enjoy the high-efficiency HVAC system, updated electric, newer roof and replacement windows throughout. The full basement has a middle room with retro-cool wood paneled walls perfect for setting up a workshop, while still leaving plenty of space for separate storage. A stone's throw from Memphis Taproom and Greensgrow Farms, this Fishtown compound is in an ideal spot for leaving the car in the driveway and staying local, but multiple bus lines and I-95 are nearby when youre ready to venture out.
