SoPhilly Spotlight: Villa-inspired home edition

Have you ever wanted to live in a villa? This week’s SoPhilly Spotlight is a villa-inspired home right here in South Philly, located at 1823 S. 12th St. in East Passyunk Crossing.


The 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with 1,608 sq. ft. is currently listed for $389,900.

From the listing:

Welcome to this Villa Inspired 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, soaring 3 story brick front, tree lined, Passyunk Square home.



This property has upgraded features such as the finished basement, main floor full bath, recessed lighting throughout, and a gorgeous rear patio that makes you feel like you are in a European Courtyard.



Step on in to a tiled foyer entrance on the first floor which opens up to a large formal living room with gas fireplace, a spacious dining room, and an expansive eat-in style kitchen. We love the natural light from the windows in the kitchen because it shows off the polished granite counters and brick patterned backsplash.




The appliances are included, gas cooking, access to the rear yard for grill-to-table convenience, and a lot of cabinetry and work space.




One special feature to note is the Deco-like appeal of the custom modern metal stair/handrails and staircases leading to the second and 3rd floors as well as custom tile flooring throughout the halls and bedrooms.




Again, this property has 4 large bedrooms with tons of storage and the 3rd-floor bedroom has a charming corner positioned wood-burning fireplace; perfect to cozy up to on a winter’s day!



Potential to build out a beautiful roofdeck off 3rd floor. Location, location, location, and so much space to enjoy! It’s a great time to visit for a personal tour today.

    Nice place , but a “villa” ? lol. Been to Italy and sorry but does not remind me of any villas I saw even with the DYI fountain in the little yard.

    The third floor fireplace is certainly unusual. Would be a good family room but strange to position it as a bedroom especially since there seems to be no bathroom on that floor.

    Someone must know someone in the tile and marble business. The fireplace in bedroom is a nice touch, I bet that floor is cold in the morning!
