SoPhilly Spotlight: 19148’s priciest listing

For this week’s SoPhilly Spotlight, we just searched 19148 and this was the home at the top of the list.

1008 Tasker

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.

And another breakfast nook at the back of the kitchen?

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?

    Hmm… don’t see it selling for that price. Though, I’d have to say I’d rather be right down the street from the Fountain than on the park, and considering this place will most likely sell for around $375K, it’s $50K cheaper. More than I’d pay, but I’m definitely not shelling out $426K for the other.

    The Tasker house doesn’t have central air.

    @ Kat, yes it does. It’s Trulia listing says yes for central A/C. But on the same note, I have seen houses close to the $300K mark in this neighborhood that have window units. It boggles my mind.

    Neither of these houses has “central” air. They both have the modern wall unit a/c’s. That being said, while I like a/c, it is hardly a deciding factor. To allow such a minor issue influence whether or not you spend $300K+ is foolish.
