SoPhilly Spotlight: 6-bedroom edition

The SoPhilly Spotlight is now brought to you by Valley Green Bank, now open at Broad and Tasker.


You ever think, I need more bedrooms? Well, this week’s SoPhilly Spotlight has you covered. Coming in at a whopping 3,072 square feet, this 6-bedroom, 3 bathroom at 112 Federal St. has plenty of space to house a prohibition-era brothel, a fraternity, or if you’re more chaste, a big, loving family. It’s going for an even $500,000.

Federal style on Federal Street.
Nice detail

It also has a 4-car garage, seven fireplaces original from circa 1835 and refinished pine floors, a finished basement and a wine cellar, according to the listing on Estately. Too bad it’s already under agreement.

Kitchens just weren’t that big in 1835
Or is that a continuation of the kitchen?

The listing also says it was the home of a former Philadelphia mayor, though it really does a disservice by not saying which one. How would we find that out?

That’s where they’ll haze the new pledges
Maybe it fits more than four cars
