One of my favorite ways to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon is to look through the real estate listings and visit Open Houses. I like to post some of my best finds on my Facebook page but thought it might be fun to mention them here on the blog from time to time, too.
Leah, who writes the blog House Obsession, is moving to Brooklyn and selling her house in Philadelphia.
You may recognize some of the rooms because her house has been featured around the blogosphere.
It’s one half of a Colonial Revival twin that she lovingly renovated
and has 4 bedrooms and 1.5 baths.
Her kitchen was featured in Country Living magazine, which was very cool:
I’m surprised they didn’t include the eat-in area
with the chalkboard wall that’s been so popular in the blogosphere:
Asking price is $200,000 $194,900 (price just reduced!).
More photos and information at House Obsession. And best of luck to Leah on her move!
Leah @ House Obsession says
Hey Julia! Thanks so much for posting our house!! We actually JUST lowered the price today to $194,900. I can’t stress enough to your readers how awesome our house, block, and neighbors are. I wish we could take it all with us!

Thanks, Leah! I just updated the post with the new listing price. Sounds like a bargain to me! -Julia 🙂
Beautiful house. If I were moving th Philly, this would be on the short list for sure.

I think I see some paint by number art which I love! I’ll be following in the footsteps of these bloggers soon (Leah…, young house love,…) once the listing with the local realtor expires (end Nov), and post my home for sale by owner! Worth trying!

Love it! Makes me want to move to Philly!

What a beautiful house and all this for only $194,900… Oh how I wished I lived closer, instead of NJ… The hubby has to live close to NYC and boy do you pay through the nose, for a house the size of shoebox… case in point… our run-down shoe box… humph….

I just sold my house in less than 3 wks by owner using a website I designed (www.3006105th.com) & some other free or low cost resources. I wrote a series about it, if you’re interested. https://www.detailgalblog.com/2010/09/how-i-sold-my-house-in-3-wks-so-you-can.html

Great series, Tina. Thanks for the link! -Julia
Her house is adorable and I love the pictures she took. I think it’s cool that her kitchen was featured in Country Living…..I’m going to have to look it up!

I can’t believe the asking price—that is an AWESOME deal. Her kitchen is swoon worthy. Love that chalkboard wall. 🙂 Her dining room furniture is very, very similar to what my Nannie has…except that my Nannie’s is “original” and pretty much looks the same as it did when I was growing up and before my time too. 😉 I LOVED seeing how Leah updated the set and made it look fun and modern.

Oh, oh, OH! Saw this on your facebook page and had to come over for more pics. I love that kitchen, and still have the tear sheet from Country Living! I just love Leah’s house and style…I’ll link to it from my facebook page since I’ve got a lot of friends in the Philly area. I’m also dying to see what Leah does with her Brooklyn pad. 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Julia! And hope you’re well…my blog sabbatical has certainly become more of a leave of absence. Somehow life got totally in the way of bloggy good times.

What a deal!!!
Sara @ Russet Street Reno says
Wow, it’s a shame they can’t get more for it – what a lovely home!
.-= Sara @ Russet Street Reno´s last blog ..Mmmm cupcakes =-.
I can’t believe this house is only $195,000!!
In AUS you couldn’t even get an apartment for that much, let alone a 4 bedroom house of this caliber! Not even a shack in the outback for that much!
Wish it was easier to move o/s!
What a beautiful home Leah, goodluck with your move- can’t wait to see what you do with your pad in Brooklyn 🙂
Her house is quite brighter than the usual rowhouse. Hers is a double it seems. When I first visited Philly to meet my fiance’s family, I couldn’t get over that people mostly lived in these 12 ft. wide rowhouses. Rowhouses going back to the 1700s and maybe earlier are all that just about line the streets there, all an idea from England. I couldn’t live that way, I can’t share walls with others and wonder how people can do that.
Courtney @ nesting instincts says
her house is really charming! I’d consider asking her if she could sell the whole thing furnished…wouldn’t that be a treasure? Too bad I’m way over on the West Coast…

Cannot believe the price for that house – it’s a steal! I wish I was moving to Philly, because I’d totally want to buy that one.
