Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various Philly neighborhoods. This week we’re looking at homes for sale asking around $400,000. Is one person’s townhouse another’s studio? Let’s find out!
Queen Village (2 beds, 1 bath)—This two-bedroom, one-bath home has great curb appeal at 720 Front Street and has historic pedigree as it’s listed on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places. It’s an expanded Trinity, so there’s a bit more room to spare, including a small roof deck with Center City views. It’s asking $399,000.
Point Breeze (3 beds, 2.5 baths)—Over in Point Breeze is this recently renovated property that clocks in at 1,577 square feet. With its new look there are finishes like subway tiles, open shelving in the kitchen, as well as custom sliding barn doors and exposed brick and shiplap. It’s asking $399,000.
Fishtown (2 beds, 2.5 baths)—Here’s a home on the edge of Fishtown that’s part of a new 24-unit condo development, so it’s never been lived in before. Along with all of the new finishes, there are multiple outdoor spaces, including a balcony off the master bedroom and a roof deck. It’s asking $399,000.
Brewerytown (4 beds, 3 baths)—Like the Fishtown home, this Brewerytown rowhome is a new build. The three-story home has pretty large bedrooms, including one on the lower level, and there’s a roof deck and back patio. It’s spot at 1238 N. Hollywood Street puts it a few short blocks from the Girard Avenue retail corridor.
Overbrook Farms (6 beds, 3.5 baths)—Saving the biggest home for last, with this 3,551-square-foot house for sale in Overbrook Farms. It’s the only stand-alone home on the list, and there’s a wrap-around porch, multiple fireplaces, and bedrooms to spare. It’s asking $395,000, coming out to $111 per square foot.
