Could This Be the Dark Knight of Philadelphia Houses?

Maybe. But there's a challenger in the Loft District.

Is the Bruce Wayne of houses in Passyunk Square?

To be clear, the comparison between this 7th and Wharton home and Bruce Wayne/Batman applies solely to the home’s exterior. From the front, the Scott Larkin-redesigned residence appears as your average South Philly row house. But past the airy interior rooms and out the glass garage door exposure is something none of us expected: a sleek, black façade that might just beat out that Dark Knight-esque Wawa in Princeton.

It’s a close call, but this Loft District home warrants some consideration for the title, too. What do you think?

The property is a winner regardless, though. Exposed brick and frosted glass doors are throughout, with American walnut, steel stairs and built-in wall pockets laying claim to space as well. The master suite, located on the third level, vaunts desk space, a walk-in closet with washer & dryer hook up, plus, a mini fridge pocket. “Originally selected in part for its southern exposure,” adds the listing, “the home takes advantage of the sun’s natural path.”
