1712 Folsom St.
Folsom started as an exercise in maximizing living space on a small lot. Philadelphia is known for undersized lots in many of it's downtown neighborhoods, some of which are even 40' deep. These lots usually lend themselves to short, narrow homes, with awkward floor plans. As an exercise, Folsom reached and surpassed its goals. We managed to create a good size townhouse on an undersized lot. Folsom features all the typical amenities found in the larger, more expensive city home, while offering some new ones as well. The home was built during the Fall and Winter of 2010 and sold in the Spring of 2011. During the time of its short public exposure it was received with such high praise that it became very clear to us that this floor plan must grace more than one address. A single family home with one car garage, rear yard, and 1700 square feet of indoor space.
