Northern Liberties ‘designer home’ with deck and two dishwashers asks $1.2M

A developer built and then inhabited the 4,272-square-foot townhouse at 1009 North Orianna Street in Northern Liberties.

    Northern Liberties 'designer home' with deck and two dishwashers asks $1.2M
    A developer built and then inhabited the 4,272-square-foot townhouse at 1009 North Orianna Street in Northern Liberties. The spread is a modern-contemporary hybrid, with plenty of clean lines and light-filled capaciousness. There are four bedrooms and four bathrooms, and touches such as a 15-foot island in the kitchen (and double everything there, too-two dishwashers, two sinks, and two ovens).
