If a big house sounds like too much to handle, then this cute rowhome in South Philly might be worth a look. Clocking in at less than 1,000 square feet and asking less than $250,000, it makes for an ideal starter home.
The house sits on a narrow street just three blocks from East Passyunk Avenue. Behind the brick facade, which was recently repointed, is a 960-square-foot home that immediately charms with its architectural details, like the archway that frames the dining room.
On the second story, there are two bedrooms and one bathroom, plus a smaller room that could be used as a den or office.
Aside from the fact that the home lacks central AC, it’s pretty much move-in ready thanks to previous upgrades made over the past couple of years. The galley kitchen is located at the rear of the home and has new cabinetry and appliances. There’s also new in-unit laundry, a remodeled bathroom, and new electrical outlets.
And for what it’s worth, there’s extra breathing room out back beyond the kitchen: The tiny back patio is at least big enough to fit in a grill.
The asking price of the home at 1515 S. Beulah Street is $243,900, coming out to $254 per square foot.
