SoPhilly Spotlight: A new kind of bay window edition

This week’s SoPhilly Spotlight is actually two Point Breeze houses side-by-side, 1344 and 1346 S. 17th St., both for sale for $355,000 and both recently reduced by $14,000.

1346 S. 17th

Both are also having open houses this weekend, Saturday from 5 to 6 p.m. So, you can see for yourselves what that kind of dough gets you in this part of town.

It gets a lot: 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 2,600 square feet, a bright, massive finished basement with a ladder up to the back yard and a roof deck with a stunning view of Center City.

This new home also features a full finished basement w/a tile flr, a video monitored intercom system and a built-in security system. There is ample street parking.

That is one big-ass basement

By the way, what do you think of those angled bay windows?

    Nice design. Nice house. I thought parking was required on all new homes? Still wouldn’t feel 100% safe in that area at night, especially parking on the street.

      parking is not required – in fact the new zoning code actively discourages (and perhaps even prohibits) street front garages

    My wife lived on the 1400 block of Bancroft from 2008-2010. It was pretty tough around there.

      Have these new constructions been lived in (hence the furniture) or is this a staging?

      • September 20, 2013 at 2:38 pm

        I think that’s staging because they were both recently completed.

    I think the angled bay windows would mean I wouldn’t have to put up the screen and stick my torso out the window to see what was going on up the block.

    Hideous design choices. Tough neighborhood. What a shame.
