Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for a certain dollar amount in various Philly neighborhoods. This week, we’re checking out homes at or around $1,700 a month, and there’s a ton in terms of style: from brand new construction, to renovated rowhomes.
Brewerytown (2 bed, 1.5 bath)—Brewerytown is an increasingly popular Philly neighborhood, and as a result, new construction, like this spot at 1225 North 28th Street have begun appearing all over the neighborhood. This home offers a lot in the way of bright, open layout, and features windows that run nearly wall-to-wall.
Point Breeze (3 bed, 1.5 bath)—Tucked into Point Breeze, this 1,500-square foot space at Cedarbrook and 23rd offers an entire house, with exposed brick walls, laundry in unit, and bay windows that shed tons of light.
Pennsport (4 bed, 3 bath) —On the other side of Broad Street, down in Pennsport, this newly renovated four-bed home at 2nd and Sigel has a ton to offer in the way of amenities and look. That includes a large kitchen, original hardwood floors, and garage parking (notoriously difficult to find in this city). Plus, you can bring your (small) cat or dog along.
Bella Vista (1 bed, 1 bath)—While the size of this 600 South 10th Street place is a stark change from the others—this one offers only one bed and 850 square feet of space—it has a ton of killer qualities. Like massive windows that look out over the neighborhood, a kitchen with a ton of cabinet space, and it’s walking distance from the Italian Market.
Old City (1 bed, 1 bath)—In terms of a classic, industrial aesthetic, this bi-level at 225 Church Street ticks all the boxes. It has stained hardwood floors, exposed brick, and plenty of wood beams. Plus, the upstairs balcony looks out over large, factory-style windows.
Which would you pick for $1,700?
