SoPhilly Spotlight: Killer Dining Room edition

It’s not often we notice anything about dining rooms in South Philly – they’re rarely separate rooms at all – but that’s exactly what caught our attention for this week’s SoPhilly Spotlight.

The built-in shelving in this place, at 1236 Daly St., looks like it could have come out of a suburban basement wet bar.

And the outside is quite handsome as well.

The 3-bedroom, 1-bath house spread over 1,181 square feet  is going for a modest $189,000. Not bad.

Kitchen could use an update.

From the listing by Pru-FoxRoach’s Tina DeJesse (who helped us find Passyunk Post world headquarters, by the way):

Wonderful, Immaculate home in South Philadelphia with CENTRAL AIR. and BRAND NEW gas heater !! Just a 3 block walk to Hip Passyunk Square as well , open and spacious floor plan with separate liv/din room, Grand oak curio cabinet built in, beautiful hardwood floors upstairs and down, reset lighting through-out, large eat in kitchen with great cooking space with oak cabinets, tile floors, newer appliances, backyard space as well.. 2nd Floor: has 3 bedrooms, middle room can be your office or dressing room, all with hardwood floors, extra roomy bathroom with gorgeous subway tile and pedestal sink, nice tight home. Right off of 13th and Jackson one block from Starbucks also in the famous Jenks School district, incredible value and very close to all major transportation, get in on the ground floor in this next new hot neighborhood!

Dark hallway could be spruced up with some paint on the doors

Assuming this is the master. With no pics of the other bedrooms, they’re probably going to be quite small.

And a teeny bathroom


How’s it look? Is $189k a good price for this kind of house in LoMo?

      You should split your 6% commission with them if you love them so much. 🙂

    Not LoMo. But a very fair price! The house looks reasonably
    well-updated. You can buy in the same area for under $100k, but
    someone just died in it and it hasn’t been updated since

      1236 Daly isn’t LoMo? I thought that was in the heart of it. Unless I made another mistake I’m not seeing…
