Coca-Cola Bottle House is Off the Market; Its Neighbor is Not

It seems that the endless saga of the Society Hill Coca-Cola Bottle House has come to an end. For now, at least. After popping on and off the market for the better part of two years, the 1972 home, last listed for $950K, was taken off the market in June of 2013. Originally designed for the CEO of the Coca-Cola Corporation, the lowermost exterior window is made from Coca-Cola bottles.

But a block away, this five-bedroom, two and a half-bath town house takes those bottle tops and does you one better: your very own greenhouse. This 3,000 square-foot home, listed for $1.2 million, boasts a living room with Pennsylvania blue marble mantle over a gas fireplace, pine floors throughout, and the pièce de résistance — a glassed in, climate controlled English conservatory overlooking a landscaped English garden. OK the listing photos leave a lot to be desired, but use your imagination, and for the love of all that is good and holy, ignore that green velvet chaise.
