This week’s SoPhilly Spotlight starts with a question: Are people really paying nearly $350,000 to buy in Point Breeze?
Excuse the ignorance if this isn’t the anomaly we think it is, especially since this 3-bed, 3-bath home (yes, that’s a lot) has about 1,800 square feet (also a lot), a finished basement (nice) and a roof deck (oh, yeah). It’s at 1924 Manton St., which is in a booming part of Point Breeze and around the corner from an OCF Cafe and Breezy’s Cafe.
But that just seems like a lot, right?
From the listing by BHHS Fox & Roach:
Top quality, new construction. This 3 bedroom, 3 bath town home offers a spacious top floor master suite leading to a roof deck with spectacular city views, a full finished basement with laundry, bath, and 4th bedroom or den. Hardwood floors throughout, spacious eat-in kitchen featuring stone tops and stainless appliances. A generous enclosed rear yard offers space for entertaining. 2nd floor has two bedrooms with shared large bathroom & Laundry. 3rd floor master suite with large bathroom and walk-in closet. Priced to sell quickly with time to customize. A can’t miss, so don’t. Property also has 9 ft ceilings on each floor and a finished basement with 7 ft ceilings.
None of those cool features in bold are actually pictured (though there are half a dozen pictures of the kitchen).
So, what do you think?
