SoPhilly Spotlight: Killer Master Bedroom edition

This is possibly our favorite of all the houses that have ever been featured in the  SoPhilly Spotlight — classic rowhouse feel with plenty of space, and without all the prefab crap that developers love these days.

And my god, check out this closet.

This is connected. Too bad there's no bathroom up here, though.

    I think a deck with no view that’s right on top of a neighbor’s window is a sorry excuse for a deck. But: lovely floors!

    That’s an awesome closet, until you realize it’s a bedroom.

    This is a good deal for a 3 story house in the neighborhood. And those wide plank floors are amazing!

    Not easy to find that kind of square footage, layout and details in a house that is actually updated for under 400k.

    Think this house would sell quickly at that number….it would be interesting to see what the homes featured on here actually sell for and how long they stayed on the market.

    The two properties near 11 and federal that started out asking over 500k come to mind.

      You mean 12th and Latona? Between $400K and $500K. You can use Redfin to filter for sales.

    Seems reasonable given area/updates. Most of what’s selling now is much more updated and people feel comfortable buying new construction. Things like the outdated Ikea kitchen and the standing water on the roof will scare off many first timers. It’s a trade off with all the charm of an older house.

      Yeah. Likely the reason it hasn’t sold yet. Good not great block, probably needs work.

      Price point seems high. Likely why it’s still on market.

      I think it’d be great for the site to revisit some that have sold.
