This Philadelphia gem is the best value for the dollar, with an asking price more than $700 cheaper per square foot than the most expensive home on our tour. It features a whopping seven bedrooms, two full bathrooms and one half-bath. Built in 1908, it's a three-story Tudor revival located in the West Philadelphia section of the city. The first floor includes a living room, formal dining room with bay windows and a mud room that doubles as a laundry room. The eat-in kitchen includes standard appliances and solid-surface counter tops. Four of the bedrooms are located on the second floor, while the remaining three are on the third floor, which also includes a study and walk-in closet. A renovated bathroom features a restored, original claw-foot tub. And you'll enjoy a private backyard with a large patio and a wrap-around porch in front.
