SoPhilly Spotlight: Artsy edition

This week’s SoPhilly Spotlight has a bit of a melancholy tinge to it, but maybe it will prompt you to give thanks for your life. The late artist Thomas Beckett, who died in 2006, lived in the white house in the middle at 1532 S. Camac Street, a unique 1- or 2-bedroom, depending on how you look at it, that is high on amenities, location, and price.

Going for $1,800 a month, this 800 square foot charmer has a new kitchen and bathroom, central air and quirky features throughout. From the Craigslist listing:

A Must See gem in the heart of desirable Passyunk Square! Nestled on a quiet, no drive through street just one block from the Passyunk Square piazza and fountain,this … two story property is replete with custom artistic touches! These begin upon arrival at the repurposed confessional front door and hand crafted mosaic tile vestibule floor. Details continue in the dining area of the open floor plan, with rounded ceiling corners echoed in the inlay of the restored original hardwood floors. The newly renovated kitchen boasts a tasteful terrazzo floor, exposed brick walls, mosaic tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, white lacquer cabinetry, and lots of chic ambience.

The second floor features a modern bathroom with mosaic glass inlaid subway tile, and an open den area which can be used as a multi-purpose area or enclosed by owner as a second bedroom.

According to Curbed Philly, which has even more pictures, by the way, the house was previously listed for sale for $265,000. Ouch. For a 1-bedroom plus den? No wonder it didn’t sell. What do you think this house should go for?
