Sunny condo in historic Frank Miles Day building asks $740K

With two private entrances

A condo in the historic Frank Miles Day building in Center City has hit the market, and like its neighboring units it comes with plenty of character.

The 1,700-square-foot condo is a 2-bedroom, 2-bath property located in the Italianate building at 1215 Locust Street. It was designed by Day, an apprentice of noted architect Frank Furness in 1982. Recently converted into live-work condos, each unit taking up an entire floor of the five-story building.

That means each condo has private elevator access. But this unit is slightly different in that it has two separate entrances, which may appeal to those who really want to separate their live-work spaces.

The two beautiful fireplaces are showstoppers of the condo, but the small dining nook, steps down to the bedrooms, and large arched windows hold their own, too. And there’s a patio off to one side of the condo that’s small, but big enough for a grill.

The asking price of this condo is $740,000, plus $259 monthly HOA fees.
