SoPhilly Spotlight: Stately Funeral Home Neighbor edition

For this week’s SoPhilly Spotlight, we bring you 2210 S. Broad St., a gorgeous, massive townhome that may deter buyers who easily get the heebie jeebies (is that how you spell that?).

The real estate listing for the 3,800 square foot, 3-bedroom, 1-full, 2-half bath house happens to omit its neighbor, Carto Funeral Home, from the picture of the facade.

See the gray brick on the right?

Ah, but we know the truth.

Nonetheless, it is a beautiful home, if not a little dated. That’s understandable, though, since it’s had the same owner since 1978, when the man bought it for $55,000. Now it’s up for $469,900. And you’re not going to get this much house a block from the Snyder subway stop for that little money for long.

From the listing by Long and Foster:

1st floor, great for entertaining, with open floor plan, hardwood floor and newer 1/2 bath. 1st floor could be converted to office or retail. Take the oak staircase, up to the 2nd floor that has walnut inlay oak flooring. Large living room, huge kitchen with Jenaire and Subzero appliances, including dishwasher, trash compactor, double oven and microwave. Plenty of cherry cabinets. There is also a 1/2 bath on the 2nd floor.

Hmm, wonder what zoning allows there in terms of an office or retail.

Nice piano. Probably doesn’t come with the house, huh?

The kitchen, dining room and a parlor, we guess you could call it, are on the second floor.

Just past the dinning room is a beautiful den with skylights, wood burning fireplace, and custom built shelving. 3rd floor has 3 bedrooms, all with ample closets. Full bath on 3rd floor has jetted tub, double sink and stall shower. Partialy finshed full basement with 10ft ceiling, all plumbing for full bathroom. Home is fully insulated, with 200 amp 2 phase electric, 3 zone heating and 3 zone central air. Fresh air heat recovery system, intercom system and much more.

    Beautiful inside, was wondering why a house right there would go for almost half-a-million dollars…big too. Guy is looking to cash in there, $55,000! Geez.
