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 $235,000.
Rittenhouse Square (0 beds, 1 bath)—You may know the Warwick as a hotel, but there are also the rare units that hit the market as condos, like this 417-square-foot studio. Located one block from Rittenhouse Square, the pet-friendly unit has a kitchen with a small fridge and a dishwasher, plus a renovated bathroom. There’s also access to the building’s fitness center and hotel room service. Along with the $235,000 price tag, there are $276 monthly HOA dues.
Roxborough (3 beds, 1.5 baths)—For the most bang per buck, look up the Schuylkill to Roxborough. This 1,632-square-foot home is asking $237,500, making it the largest home for sale at this price point. There are hardwood floors and new trim moldings, plus a front porch and a back yard with a fish pond.
Marconi Park East (2 beds, 2 baths)—Hiding away in this South Philly neighborhood is a 840-square-foot brick rowhome. It’s been updated, namely in the kitchen and the living room, where there is a floating staircase and a fireplace. One of the bathrooms is located in the basement.
Fishtown (1 bed, 1 bath)—Into that loft life? Check out this 895-square-foot condo in the Ribbon Factory Lofts. Natural light is not an issue here, since there are seven 10-foot-tall windows. It’s a big, open layout with the bedroom tucked into the corner, and there’s in-unit laundry, too. Monthly condo fees come out to $178.
Brewerytown (2 beds, 1.5 baths)—This cute gray home on a corner in Brewerytown wants $235,500 after getting a fresh new look. There are new hardwood floors and windows all throughout and a completely new bathroom and kitchen. Some extra living space is possible with the finished basement, too.
