SoPhilly Spotlight: Stone basement edition

This week’s SoPhilly Spotlight is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home at 710 S. Marvine St. 


The 2,352 sq. ft. home is currently on the market for $599,000.

More from the JG Real Estate listing:

710 S Marvine Street is a stunning single family home with over 2,000 square feet of living space, right in the heart of Bella Vista on a quiet, tree-lined side street near 11th & Bainbridge Sts. This is not just an average rowhome, however, as there are unique architectural details throughout which give it a ton of character.


1st floor consists of an open floor plan living room, dining area and kitchen with hardwood floors throughout and exposed brick accent walls. A doorway from the dining area on the side of the house leads to a private side alley great for bike storage or garbage/recycling and you can exit the back onto S. Sartain Street, plus there is a very small back patio area for outdoor planters.


The side alley also means that there are windows all along the dining area which brings in natural sunlight. The kitchen comes equipped with refrigerator, gas range stove, built-in microwave, dishwasher and garbage disposal. White cabinetry all around, tiled backsplash and a breakfast bar complete the look.



Finished basement serves as additional living area/den or office with stone walls and a half bathroom with front-loading washer & dryer. There is also a gas powered fireplace here.

The stone walls give the space a kind of cool, medieval dungeon vibe.


The stairways leading to the 2nd and 3rd floors are all open with wrought iron railings.


The full bathroom on the second floor is on the hallway but is split so the shower stall area is in a separate room from the wash room.


Two bedrooms are on either end of the house, both are very large with ample closet space and exposed brick walls.


The 3rd floor consists entirely of the master suite with large master bathroom which has separate shower and bathtub with white tiled surround on the walls.



Then there is an open room perfect for an office, sitting area or dressing/changing space with a smaller set of stairs leading to the bedroom which has vaulted ceilings, a gas fireplace and leads directly to the private roofdeck with unobstructed Center CIty skyline views.
