A trio of custom-built, steel and concrete homes have been on the rise in Point Breeze for months, and now they’ve hit the market asking $780,000 each.

The homes on Alter Street were designed by Octo Studio’s Andrew Jevremovic, a sculptor and designer whose work is on display in various Philly restaurants including BingBing Dimsum and Kraftwork Bar. Jevermovic and his wife decided to use the vacant lot next to their studio in Point Breeze and turn it into Octo Novo, which they describe as “modern sustainable artistic residences.”

Each four-story townhouse is 3,200 square feet and features four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. Jevermovic’s craftsmanship is on display in each home via the laser-cut metal staircases that he designed.

Each residence is also energy efficient. Each floor is heated by individual radiant systems and there is spray-foam insulation throughout the home, which helps reduce heat loss. The homes also have one-car garages hooked up with an electric car charger.

Although 2238 Alter Street already has an offer, the homes at 2234 and 2236 Alter Street are still up for grabs, each asking $780,000.
