On the second floor of a Washington Square brownstone sits this well-lit home, which just dropped on the market for a mere $270,000.
The price is almost unheard of in the Washington Square neighborhood—one of the most popular Center City residential neighborhoods—and there’s a reason for it. The home only clocks in at 720 square feet and offers just one bed and one bath.
But that should hardly be a deterrent. The home’s main living area seems roomy with soaring ceilings and bay windows that let in plenty of sunlight. Dark hardwood floors and crown molding add to the apartment’s elegant and historic feel (the building was constructed nearly a century ago, after all).
A small, curved kitchen sits at one end of the apartment, offering wood cabinets and a dishwasher—a great find in any Philly home.
But the real draw is the bedroom, which sits at the other end of the living area, opposite from the kitchen. It offers a lot of open space, similar to the living room, with hardwood floors and Victorian-era bay windows.
The home, which is one of the Strickland Court brownstone apartments on 10th and Spruce, requires a $401 HOA fee in addition to its listing price.
