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 breaking out of the norm and looking at homes for sale—rather than rent—and there’s a lot at the $300,000 price point, all offering a different style and size.
Logan Square (1 bed, 1 bath)—This 1,200-square-foot bi-level condo on 2025 Arch Street offers plenty of light in the main room. A lower level holds a spacious living space separated from the kitchen by an arched brick wall. There’s plenty of storage space and laundry in-unit as well as some killer curbed appeal. The home, which costs $325,000 is being shown by Matthew Greene of Coldwell Banker.
West Passyunk (3 bed, 1 bath)—Tucked away in West Passyunk on 2225 South Lambert Street, this three-bed home has hardwood floors throughout, as well as a newly updated kitchen and bath. There’s tons of light throughout the space, and a skylight in the bathroom lets in even more. The home just shy of our price point at $275,000. It’s being shown by Kevin Murphy of Main Line Executive Realty.
West Mount Airy (6 beds, 2 baths)—Believe it or not, you can actually get a six-bed house just shy of this price point at $295,000. This spot at 6924 McCallum Street is a brick twin home with a lot of interior (and exterior) character. There are built-in cases, hardwood floors, and unique ceilings, along with a cute garden and stone steps outside. The place is being shown by Jennifer GrossKopf of Keller Williams.
Chinatown (2 bed, 1 bath)—Right on the edge of Chinatown is this 800-square-foot apartment, offering high ceilings, exposed brick, and massive windows for $285,000. The home has that industrial loft style interior that’s so popular in apartments through Philly. It’s one of 92 units in the building and it’s being shown by Thomas Groll of Keller Williams.
Fishtown (3 bed, 1 bath)—This 920-square-foot brick rowhome opens with a tiled foyer, and a sunny front room. There are hardwood floors throughout the house and a brightly lit kitchen area in the back of the first room leads to an enclosed back patio. The three bedrooms on the second floor have tons of light and wood-lined windows. The whole home, which sits at 810 Mercer Street, asks $339,000. It’s being shown by Frank DeFazio of BHHS Fox Roach.
