SoPhilly Spotlight: Whole lotta light edition

For all its charms, rowhouse living can sometimes be a dark endeavor, but this week’s SoPhilly Spotlight is a corner property that has windows and then some.

1533 Federal

The new-construction home at 1533 Federal St. comes in at $259,900 for 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. For some reason it doesn’t list square footage, but if we were to make a random stab in the dark, we’d guess about 1,000 including the finished basement. Living room seems kinda skinny (feel free to dispute any of that in the comments).
