An historic, 150-year-old home designed by famous Philly architect Thomas Ustick Walter, just dropped on the market for $499,900.

The two-bed, two-bath place sits in the heart of the neighborhood, off 908 Spruce Street, and offers a greek revival entrance, that leads into a spacious living room with a fireplace and hardwood floors. A kitchen nook is connected to the dining room (with enviable countertop space) via a passthrough window.

The condo is one of several historic homes on Portico Row, which were designed by Thomas Ustick Walter in the 1800s. Ustick is an iconic architect, known for designing the central dome of the U.S. Capitol building. The 1,370 square-foot-place may not be as large as its Portico Row counterparts, but it’s spacious nonetheless. The HOA fees are $340 per month.
