Two homes, both alike in dignity in fair Society Hill where we lay our scene… Alike in dignity, indeed. These two homes, which sit side by side on the 300 block of South Third Street, are on the market, and I can’t decide whether it might have been an amusing happenstance the neighbors laughed off or if there’s underlying tension regarding who sells their home first and at what price.
Or maybe it’s no big deal. (Although, this thread on the etiquette of listing at the same time as your neighbor begs to differ.)
What the two have in common is an interior that’s at odds with their historic facades– but not in a bad way. They both appear as modern as the younger properties in Graduate Hospital, while still preserving charming historical notes. For example…
334 boasts a foyer with coat closet and stained glass windows; living room with built-in shelves and marble surround gas fireplace; and more built-ins in the second-floor bedroom. There’s also a roof deck, spiral staircase to a finished den with built-in bookshelves, and a third floor bedroom with roof skylight. Recessed and track lighting are in both the living and dining rooms.
332 enjoys a dining area with French doors leading to the back patio, living room with hardwood floors, crown molding, and a pillared archway; and a kitchen stocked with SS appliances, maple cabinets, and cast iron under mount sink. The second floor has an open area suitable for anything you want (office/bedroom/den), while the third floor has the master suite with access to a private deck. The listing notes this home has the added benefit of Bilco doors “to make moving in and out easier.”
Both homes have basements with laundry and extra storage space.
