East Passyunk Victorian Stunner With Minimalist Studio

Sometimes, “updated” in South Philly can mean “renovated in 1980.” Not here. This 1,992-square-foot, four-bedroom townhouse retains a lot of old charm (think: Victorian interior features and moldings) alongside a new kitchen and bathroom. Design combines curlicued white woodwork in the living and sleeping spaces with sleek butcher block in the kitchen and a modern timbered patio.

The third floor is completely open, nearly screaming for a photographer or another artist-type to turn it into a proper studio. Hardwood floors, exposed brick and ceiling beams have all been painted white and the windows feature a skyline view. Looks like the perfect spot to pull up a chair and write the next great Philadelphia novel.

The house is listed at $399,000 by Holly Mack-Ward & Co.
