Incredible condo in the historic Musical Fund Hall seeks $850K

28-foot ceilings!

A super chic and spacious condo in the old Musical Fund Hall building in Washington Square is for sale for $850,000, down a few thousand after hitting the market in March.

The first significant feature of note is the building itself, which was the biggest musical venue in Philly in the early 1800s. Over the years, it hosted musical acts, artists, and authors including Charles Dickens. In 1856, it hosted the nation’s first-ever Republican Convention. Eventually, the historic music hall was converted into condominiums, which resulted in the building being stripped of its National Historic Landmark status, though it's still on the National Register of Historic Places.

This particular unit is impressive in its own right. Clocking in at 2,400 square feet, it features three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The main living area’s soaring ceilings—28-feet tall!—are the main showstopper of the property. A working fireplace stretches from floor to ceiling and is flanked by big windows on both sides.

In addition to the multiple bedrooms, there’s a loft space that looks over the living area, and a parking spot.

It’s a similar layout to other condos in the building that have hit the market in the last year, but there’s a stark difference in the interior styles.

In addition to the $850,000 price tag, there are $696 monthly HOA fees.
