This week’s SoPhilly Spotlight is a home currently on the market in Newbold (or whatever the neighborhood is being called these days).
The “uniquely renovated” house at 1818 S. Hicks St. features modern upgrade throughout, but you’ll still spot some quirky details, like the bathroom tile in the entryway and the mural painted on the fence in the backyard. This three bedroom, three bathroom, 1,200 sq. ft. home is currently listed for $324,900.
More from the listing:
Uniquely renovated 3-story home located on one of the best blocks of Newbold- right down the street from South Philly Tap Room! Tastefully restored home with a nod to modern design aesthetics and function while maintaining historic charm.
Enter through the vestibule into an open first floor- big living room and dining room with industrial modern pendant light. Powder room on first floor and basement entrance outfitted to serve as coat ‘closet’. Bright and lovely kitchen with large window, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, slate tile floor, tile backsplash, pantry cabinet and breakfast bar/computer nook.
Exit to your private patio with a one of a kind mural painted by nationally acclaimed Philly-based street artist. Two amply sized bedrooms on second floor- both with closets- and a large, fully-tiled bathroom that houses your washer/dryer so you don’t have to schlep to the basement!
