The journey of Edgemont street has meant a lot to Jana and Steph. After small cosmetic upgrades, a full fledged kitchen renovation and a neighborhood that has become family, their need for space for their growing family has led them to a spacious home with a backyard in Collingswood. But the memories here are forever cherished. Watching Addie grow into a comical genius - don’t knock this until you hear her animal impersonations. Grabbing an ice cream cone to round out their Sunday running errands around Port Richmond. Seeing their animals scurry through all three floors of the house. Here’s the story of 2834 Edgemont. The home of Steph, Jana, Addie, Bellini, Ayo, Sweetie and Zulu (animals not pictured).

Our block is very tight-knit. The neighbors are always looking out for and helping one another. There are constantly new bars, restaurants, and coffee shops within walking distance popping up. Our toddler loved the newly renovated playground that's just a few blocks away.
What was your non-negotiable when it came to finding your dream home?
A kitchen is comparable to our beautiful Port Richmond home.

Kitchen! We tore it down to the studs/floorboards, combined two smaller rooms, and made it our dream kitchen. That is the room we socialize in. We love all the space we have to cook.
