The Hoopskirt Factory is a six-story 1875 building, which once housed the Klosfit Petticoat Factory, and was converted into apartments in the 1980s and condominium units in 2006. Walking through the long hallways, one can imagine the petticoat/hoopskirts swinging from the giant rafters above. The space between each floor is vacuous with soaring ceilings anchored by enormous wood beams--a perfect setting for carving unique residential loft spaces. The units have at least one lofted space and most embrace the rich exposed brick of the original factory. This unit boasts tall oversized windows, allowing east light to flood the space in the early hours, melting to soft natural hues later in the day. Lustrous wide plank wood floors run throughout the space, and a handsome brick wall towers along one side of the unit. A kitchen runs along the back wall with lovely espresso colored cabinets, a white subway tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances. A laundry closet with stacked units is nestled into the space next to the staircase. The dining area and living room spread out in the open floor plan comprising the main living level. The steps upstairs lead to a sleeping loft, a testament to industrial character with huge beams accenting the wood ceiling and floors. An attractive bathroom meshes contemporary style with old world character and features a white subway tile surround over a tub and shower combination within the natural wood space. Old City is a vibrant neighborhood that showcases Philadelphia's rich history, with towering brick and concrete facades lining the streets and cobblestone alleys. It is also a hub for public transportation, making it easy to get around the city. The neighborhood is home to cultural and historic institutions, as well as a wide array of boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and retail options. It is also the site of the Annual Fringe Festival and First Fridays, where galleries open up to showcase their new exhibits. Overall, Old City provides all the benefits of an urban lifestyle with a unique historical charm.
