So often we'll gaze longingly at a rowhome in Society Hill and wonder what old-world goodness is hiding inside. Let's just say this is not what we expected to find inside this brick house on S. 2nd Street, now on the market for $1,292,500.
The 5-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home shows its true colors—literally—from the get-go, with its bold foyer painted in pink. Up a few steps the color changes to green in the spacious living area, yellow in the eat-in kitchen, and blue in the dining area.
Upstairs, where you'll find all five bedrooms, is a little more plain Jane. Real estate agent Jeff Block says, "The upstairs needs some updating for sure. That is what provides the value."
At 4,300 square feet, this property really offers an incredible amount of space that's accentuated in the step-down living area. It features floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors that open to a brick patio. Upstairs, there's another private roof deck.
There's also one other unique feature included with the property: it comes with an electrical vehicle parking spot.
Not that you'll necessarily need a car. The home is in the heart of Society Hill, just one block from Headhouse Square and down the road from I.M. Pei's Society Hill Towers.
Intrigued? Might want to act fast. Block says, "We already have some preliminary interest after just a few days."
