SoPhilly Spotlight: Convent edition

The nuns would plotz. So, this week’s SoPhilly Spotlight is in Bella Vista, a bit out of our traditional range. But it’s so cool that we don’t care.

Yeah, that’s pretty

Built in a former convent, this 3-bedroom, 3-bath condo at 730 Montrose St. (Unit D) is going for $469,000 and being offered by PruFox Roach. The 1,542 square foot gem has a neat entryway, kick-ass kitchen and cool details throughout. From the listing:

This exclusive 5 unit condo building is all owner-occupied and features a dramatic common hall, assigned parking, common basement and shared BBQ deck!

There is a $225 monthly condo fee, but that takes care of a couple bills and that pesky winter bugaboo of home ownership – shoveling. “Fee includes: water, sewer, trash + snow removal, exterior maintenance, interior maintenance on common area, common insurance.”

It’s certainly an interesting building. We just did a half-assed search for some history about it and couldn’t find anything. The stone building next door says “Ecclesia Catholica Paroch Ital” and that it was dedicated in 1891. Other than that wealth of Latin, anyone know anything about it?

    I wish the inside has as much character as the outside. Alas…
