SoPhilly Spotlight: Affordable 8-bedroom edition

You read that headline right. Yes, it’s eight bedrooms, yes, it’s affordable, and no, it’s not a dump nor in a shitty neighborhood.

Those beautiful floors spread through most of the house, which has all sorts of nice detail, like those French doors

Coming in at $289,900, this week’s SoPhilly Spotlight is at 1529 S. 15th St., less two blocks from the Tasker subway and a quick walk from all the other good stuff around here. It’s also huge: 2,800 square feet.

Lacks a bit in curb appeal, but that tired facade hides a well-preserved interior

A couple curiosities: 1) It’s listed as having 2.25 bathrooms, which probably means a toilet in the corner of an unfinished basement, no walls or sink. That setup was portrayed as a “1/4 bath” in the real estate listing for Passyunk Post’s world headquarters 7+ years ago. And 2):

2nd floor hosts 4/bedrooms front, middle and back bedrooms with nice light and closet space,original hardwood flooring in addition to a full tile bath off hall.

Four bedrooms on the second floor and a full bath? Those must be incredibly tiny rooms. But this one upstairs sure isn’t.

This is one of the bedrooms on the third floor

At this price and this size, we wouldn’t be surprised if someone tried to break the thing up into apartments, though the neighbors probably wouldn’t be too happy about that.

Or you could turn it into the mansion of you dreams. So, are you going to write a check for $289k, or what?
