New, 2 comments


? This 6,488 square-foot house at 18th and Pine—formerly the Civil War Museum of Philadelphia—has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, 10 fireplaces, a library, a wet bar and a two-car garage. There's also a courtyard for reenactment parties too. Price: $2,390,000


? This single-family home at Eighth and Morris—formerly a firehouse—is 5,890 square feet of space just waiting for your creative genius to descend upon its open floorplan. The property includes a courtyard and parking for at least four cars. There's a wine cellar in the basement, which we assume is not an original detail. Price: $550,000


? This 37,854 square-foot concrete building at 16th and Catherine—formerly a YWCA—could be anything you want it to be: a school, an apartment complex, your own personal sporting palace. It includes an inground pool and a parking lot with space for 15 vehicles. Price: $2,250,000 · Listing: 1805 Pine St. [Prudential Fox & Roach]
· Listing: 808 Morris St. [Howard Hanna]
· Listing: 1607-15 Catharine St. [CBPref/Avenue of the Arts]
