SoPhilly Spotlight: Best. Neighborhood. Ever edition

For this week’s SoPhilly Spotlight, we bring you a charming, rehabbed home in the heart of all that Passyunk Avenue has to offer.


It’s in the Best. Location. Ever — tucked away on a quiet, tree-lined block — in the Best. Neighborhood. Ever — with more than 30 places to eat and drink within a three-block radius.


This 2-bedroom, 1 bath (with an extra toilet and sink in the basement) home at 1821 S. Camac St. has about 1,100 square feet in a renovation that preserves gorgeous historical details like crown molding and wide-plank oak floors. The Berkshire Hathaway Home Services listing is going for $299,000. 

More from the listing:

Fantastic newly rehabbed home in booming Passyunk Square. This home is nestled just around the corner from the great Passyunk Avenue restaurants and cafes, take your pick, Laurel, Fond, Marra’s, Le Virtu, Bing Bing, the list goes on and on.



Wonderful curb appeal and contemporary look and feel as you enter. Restored original gorgeous oak plank floors throughout, open staircase with cool exposed brick walls all the way up the 2nd floor landing. Separate living room plus dining room with cool light fixtures.



Spacious eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances, glass tile back splash, granite countertops, contemporary cabinets and plenty of counter space. Great extra large windows in the kitchen and living room give off wonderful natural light throughout.



Nice size backyard great for entertaining with a tall privacy wall. Basement is very clean and spacious, great for extra storage or to finish off down the road, has plumbing and an extra toilet. Mechanicals have all been updated, including a brand new 97% efficiency CENTRAL Air and Heating system.



Upstairs is a treat, with an extra large extended bathroom with high end porcelain tile shower/tub bath with glass enclosures, subway tile floors and extra large vanity and sink. The bedrooms are also surprisingly gigantic and have tons of storage space, and the master has its own California closet with built-ins.



Newer windows throughout. This home is tight. It was extended years ago and is much larger than the 840 square feet listed on the public record. So close to Center city just a bike ride away!!


This neighborhood is the most convenient around, every major shopping center just 2 blocks away, Walkscore gives this a 98!! Very easy to show. Come be a part of the Passyunk Square life.

    Shouldn’t you disclose that this is your house, Mr Farnsworth?

    Nice house but there’s just not much space in those side st homes…even if it was pushed back they still feel cramped to me due to the low ceilings.

    Although I’m not a fan of exposed brick the house is pretty. They did a nice job in the bathroom. But that kitchen, ugh. Why didn’t they replace those dreadful cabinets and fake brick back splash? And a toilet in the cellar isn’t a powder room.

    Very nice and very good location. But, not best ever. Two blocks north, yes. Saw last week two homes sold on 10xx block of Fernon and Mountain for under $200K, that’s a steal for half a block from the Fountain.

    This house (exterior) was in the new Philadelphia Magazine article on Rowhouses.

    why why why would you waste money on slapping granite counter on those nasty old laminate cabinets??

    Otherwise, really nice, especially the window in the old AC hole on the second floor…creative!!
