SoPhilly Spotlight: $345k in Point Breeze edition
This week’s SoPhilly Spotlight starts with a question: Are people really paying nearly $350,000 to buy in Point Breeze?
Excuse the ignorance if this isn’t the anomaly we think it is, especially since this 3-bed, 3-bath home (yes, that’s a lot) has about 1,800 square feet (also a lot), a finished basement (nice) and a roof deck (oh, yeah). It’s at 1924 Manton St., which is in a booming part of Point Breeze and around the corner from an OCF Cafe and Breezy’s Cafe.
But that just seems like a lot, right?
From the listing by BHHS Fox & Roach:
Top quality, new construction. This 3 bedroom, 3 bath town home offers a spacious top floor master suite leading to a roof deck with spectacular city views, a full finished basement with laundry, bath, and 4th bedroom or den. Hardwood floors throughout, spacious eat-in kitchen featuring stone tops and stainless appliances. A generous enclosed rear yard offers space for entertaining. 2nd floor has two bedrooms with shared large bathroom & Laundry. 3rd floor master suite with large bathroom and walk-in closet. Priced to sell quickly with time to customize. A can’t miss, so don’t. Property also has 9 ft ceilings on each floor and a finished basement with 7 ft ceilings.
None of those cool features in bold are actually pictured (though there are half a dozen pictures of the kitchen).
So, what do you think?

Pretty much confirms that there is a sucker for everything.
Hmm.. I seem to recall “grandma houses” near the Fountain going for $250K. This is not a hard decision.
If they can sell for more than 250, more power to them.
I think the realtor’s definition of ‘priced to sell’ is quite different from mine.
Those kitchen countertops are hideous.
I agree. And they really clash with the blue backsplash.
Must agree with both of you. The contractor/designer must have been color blind.
And while it’s lovely to have three bathrooms it would be even better to have put in a powder room on the first floor and not built a full bath in the basement. How many residents of that house are going to want to head to the cellar for their morning shower?
I do like the walk in shower which I guess is the master room bath but, hello, where is the shower door? Or, at least, a pole for a shower curtain. And they could have added a built in seat.
Yes, I guess I’m picky.
Regardless of taste don’t hate they will sell this place for close to asking. Watch.
Really?? It’s Point Breeze. I could buy a house near the Fountain for a leat $100K less…
Again, not a difficult choice.
You can buy an 1800 sqft gut renovated house near the fountain for 240k? Please do share…
No, you can get a house that needs renovated for $240K, update it to your liking. Still cheaper and in a MUCH better location.
Location. Location. Location.
