On the Market: Stylish Modern Condo in Old City

This striking bi-level condo occupies the ground floor and basement of a renovated 19th-century commercial building on Old City's northern edge. Its price tag is just as striking.

Picture this: A stylish, modern bi-level condo in historic Old City, in one of those handsome 19th-century commercial buildings that give the neighborhood its character.

It has three bedrooms, two full baths, a spacious open main living area, a high-end kitchen, and a rear patio.

And it has a sale price under $500,000.

Having a hard time picturing all that together? Well, then, look at these pictures, for here it is.

It’s got lots of style, especially in the living room. That space features a spiral staircase and balcony overlook from the ground-floor corridor leading from the front door. (This unit has its own entrance directly from the street.)

But the bathrooms and kitchen are no slouches. The downstairs bath has a vessel sink in its vanity while the upstairs one has dual vanities with frosted-glass-top sinks.

And the kitchen combines all the familiar elements of modern style.

In the back of the master bedroom upstairs, a sliding glass door leads to a spacious back patio.

And you’re a short walk away from all of Old City’s art and furniture galleries, shops and boutiques, and fine and casual dining establishments.

You’re not likely to find all this in a single package for this price anywhere else in Old City. If you’ve been hankering to live in one of Center City’s hippest neighborhoods in style, this may be your best chance to do so for quite some time.





SALE PRICE: $474,900

OTHER STUFF: Not only do you get all this for that price, you get parking for one year at the Parkominium across the street, paid for by the seller, starting on the date the sale closes.
