Seeing one of these little gems hit the market never gets old. Nestled in the shadow of the Society Hill Towers, also designed by architect I.M. Pei, lies a row of brick townhouses constructed as part of the Towers and Townhouses project, completed in 1964. This two-bedroom corner home features a garden, gated parking, and windows overlooking an expansive green space regularly littered with children and pets, and little to no riffraff. This is Society Hill, after all. Asking $1,197,000, the slightly if not charmingly outdated home (pretty much de rigueur for the town homes in this development, many of which have only had one or two owners since their construction), features a kitchen with granite counters, built-ins everywhere (including a built-in gas barbecue out on the patio), a balcony, gas fireplace, high ceilings, and truly spectacular hardwood floors.
