SoPhilly Spotlight: Taxidermy living room edition

This week’s SoPhilly Spotlight is a bit of a fixer upper at 1010 Tasker St.


The home has an odd charm to it, with a lot of taxidermy and out-dated wood paneling. The 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1,502 sq. ft. home is currently on the market for $399,000.

More from the listing:

Large home half a block from Passyunk Square.


Newer front, modern kitchen with granite counter top, laundry room and powder room on 1st floor.



full finished basement with powder room, 3 large bedrooms with ceramic tile bath and large walk in closet.



Pella windows throughout, newer central air unit, new rubber roof.



Home was a 4 bedroom converted to a 3 bedroom which increased the size of the bathroom and walk in closed.

      I share an alley with this house…it’s right behind mine…I really hope they get $399,000…I’m not sure they could even get $275,000, but I’m hopeful!

    Wow, this needs an adjustment in price or it will sit on the market for a LONG time. The house needs some upgrades, but it could be a good sell for $340k IF cleaned up, redecorated, appliances were all upgraded, etc. They may love animal heads, but most buyers at the $400k level may not.

    Sweet collection. That’s a TON of money is taxidermy.

    Yikes. This house needs a total renovation. I know the neighborhood is hot, but $399,000…I do not see it happening. Maybe $200,000.

      @Susan, while I agree that the asking price is too high, I can assure you it will sell for WAY more than $200K. Look at the comps……

    If that house sells for 399,000 as is, I’ll eat my hat.

    Oh, and I really hope there is some sort of taxidermy sale!

    But where will I go to look at Deer heads in South Philly? Seriously though, $399 seems high for the square footage, but I’d be curious to see how high it goes for. It’s not like buyer has to keep the animal heads. It’s a great spot and if the house has good solid bones and mechanicals it should sell or a solid price.

      • November 10, 2015 at 2:32 pm

        Yes but who wants to live in Jersey, is you love the city you gotta pay the price…….

    A lawn and 2 car garage sounds boring

    My god, if someone is dumb enough to pay that price. Do people honestly believe that the property values are going up from this peak? Cool restuarants and bars can’t compete with the logic and embedded frugality of the upper middle class i.e., the intended audience for such housing, I mean right?
