There's 'Philadelphia Style' Now in Greater Boston

New, 6 comments

Welcome to Triple-Decker Thursday, a new feature on that Greater Boston institution, the three-level apartment building.


We'd heard of New York style. Or, even more specifically, Manhattan style. Now this number just north of Teele Square, which hit the sales market earlier this month, is described as a "spacious Philadelphia-style, three-family home." Any Philly transplants wanna take a stab as to what that means?

The 3,328-square-foot spread is asking $949,000—or a relatively low $285 a square foot. As is seemingly de rigueur for Hub triple-deckers, the Griffin Properties listing for 176 Powder House presents it as a "great opportunity for a home with income, investment property, or potential condo project." That last part intrigues us. What would a Philadelphia-style condo be like?
