Real estate: Luxe life in NoLibs

Home-buyers drawn to Northern Liberties are no doubt enticed by the neighborhood’s diverse, eclectic makeup, so why build high-end homes that ignore that reality and pose as staid suburban dwellings or faux-Colonial throwbacks? Four Squared, a new development on the 800 block of N. Fourth Street, offers a quartet of luxury town houses that fit NoLibs’ contemporary personality.

“One of the things that’s been a little disappointing to me as a realtor is that a lot of the new construction in the city has had a suburban aesthetic,” says Michael Garden of CITYSPACE, the property’s broker. “It’s the 21st century; there’s no use building with an 18th-century aesthetic that doesn’t even live up to that standard.”

The 2,600-square-foot homes feature three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and an additional loft space with a wet bar that opens onto a deck overlooking Fourth Street, with a spectacular view of the Philly skyline.

Each unit also includes two-car garage parking.
