Bella Vista Condo in Old Grocery Store Asks $435K

The 2-bedroom, 2-bath unit has a whole lot of old-world charm

We spotted this condo building in Bella Vista two weeks ago when one of its units hit the market for $569,000. It didn't last long—its status is now contingent. But not to worry, because another condo became available a week later, for a lower asking price, but stocked with just as much old-world charm.

First, some history about the property: It was actually a grocery store in the early 1900s before it became a residential building.

This pet-friendly unit clocks in at 1,534 square feet and has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. A light and airy stairwell leads to the living area and kitchen, which both feature Edison bulb light fixtures, exposed brick, and salvaged wood.

Downstairs, there's a spacious office, and a bedroom that's hidden behind a wall of industrial-style windows and double doors.

Says agent Jeff Block, "This condo is just really cool."

It's in a cool neighborhood, too. Though it's located on a mostly residential block, it's close to the always popular brunch spots like Morning Glory and Sabrina's, and about two blocks from East Passyunk Avenue.

The asking price of this home is $435,000, plus $250/month HOA fees.

Editor's note: A previous version of this article stated that this property was located in Queen Village. It is located in Bella Vista.
