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 $300,000.
Germantown (6 beds, 2 baths)—For the most bang per buck, look to this Germantown home for sale, clocking in at 2,604 square feet. The Victorian twin, listed at $298,000, has lots of original charm, from the wood-burning fireplace to the hardwood floors to the clawfoot tub. Its location puts you smack dab in the middle of the Chelten Avenue stop on the SEPTA Regional and the Wissahickon.
Brewerytown (3 beds, 2.5 baths)—This price point still goes far as we make our way down to Brewerytown, where this recently renovated home awaits. The 1,630-square-foot home features an electric fireplace built into an exposed brick wall, a finished basement, and a back patio. East Fairmount Park close by, too.
Old City (1 bed, 1 bath)—Want waterfront property? A 1,075-square-foot, one-bedroom condo is up for grabs in the Pier 3 condominium, located right on the Delaware River. This particular unit is located on the top floor of the building and by the edge of the pier, so expect big river views. There’s an additional $560 in monthly condo fees, which offers access to the building’s fitness center, pool, and community deck on the water.
Passyunk (2 beds, 2 baths)—Down in South Philly by East Passyunk Avenue, $309,900 buys a 1,056-square-foot brick rowhome. It’s described as an ideal starter home for a first-time buyer, with the option to turn an extra living space on the second floor into a third bedroom. The basement, while not finished, has a full bathroom, too.
Spruce Hill (1 bed, 1 bath)—Spruce Hill is known for its big and bold Victorians, but recent new construction has brought some condos to the neighborhood. This condo clocks in at 675 square feet and is asking $291,500, plus $203 monthly HOA fees. There’s a community roof deck for when you need extra breathing room.
