SoPhilly Spotlight: The spiral staircase edition

We’re starting to realize just how many roof decks there are in South Philly. Or maybe it’s just that a higher percentage of roof-decked houses are for sale right now. Not that we’re complaining!

This 2-bedroom, 1.5-bath house at 1315 Sigel Street- less than a block from Lucky 13 and Passyunk Avenue – has a roof deck, central air and a fully finished basement. It’s going for $299,900, listed by Plumer & Associates. It’s a little on the small side at 1,036 square feet, but clearly the roof deck was not used in that calculation!


If you could winterize this deck you could rent it out on airbnb. Seriously, this could become an old-fashioned sleeping porch!



There will be an open house this Sunday, April 7 from 12-2pm for anybody that wants to snap it up!

Love that kitchen island!


How’s this for broker babble? The listing says the “second floor features a Zen like bedroom with lots of crisp and peaceful light, ample closets and space.”



Ooh, look how crisp that light is!

Brown is a daring choice for a bathroom, but we think it works really well with the all-white tile. The listing says there is a jet bathtub in here somewhere.


A basement this nice is rare. The real question is how short you would have to be to hang out down there comfortably.
