Stephen Girard Home Complete with Bat Cave Asks $2.4 M

New, 8 comments


This 1830s-era Stephen Girard home at 3rd & Spruce in Society Hill is fresh on the market after a recent remodeling. The location is prime; mere steps from Delancey Park and just a few blocks from the waterfront, although buyers might not want to venture out away from the home's beautiful confines.

The four-story home at 332 Spruce was last sold in June 2012 for $1M, but some top- notch renovations have brought the listing up to $2.4M. Perhaps the most unique feature is the basement, which looks like the ideal spot for a bat cave hideout. Hardwood floors, exposed brick and stone give the basement a look unlike any other on the market right now, so superheroes-in-training might want to give this one a look.

Size: 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, 4,300 square feet
Outdoor Space: Back yard garden/patio
Decor: Original red pine floors, King of Prussia marble mantels, cabinets by Pappajohn Woodworking
Price: $2,400,000
· Listing: 332 Spruce Street, Philadelphia [Estately]
