For this week’s SoPhilly Spotlight, we just searched 19148 and this was the home at the top of the list.
A 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath renovation at 1008 Tasker St. is on the northern border of that ZIP code, which isn’t surprising, but the price was, a bit: $399,000. Thought a few other places might get higher than that, but it beats out the next competitor on the market right now by $50k.
The way it’s staged, this 1,650-square-foot home skips a dining area in exchange for an extra sitting area that makes the main room look like a retro-inspired hotel lobby.
From the listing by National Realty Old City:
Looking for space but not willing to sacrifice taste? Rush to see this redesigned, renovated and expanded classic 3 bedroom, 2 & 1/2 bath Passyunk Square town-home. No expense has been spared and no detail overlooked. Enter the home into the original tile foyer opening onto the living room bathed in natural light. From there move on to the cozy library and separate dining room. Adjacent is the completely remodeled kitchen featuring copper sink, glass mosaic tile back-splash and updated appliances.
Upstairs one of the original bedrooms has been removed to open up the master bedroom, add a new master walk-in closet and new master bath with rain shower and double vanity. Downstairs the basement has also been completely finished further adding to the expansive living space. Excellent residential location close to Passyunk Square Fountain, restaurants, shopping and schools.
So, good deal or not?
