Sunny home in Washington Square brownstone asks $270K

The home, which is one of the Strickland Court brownstone apartments on 10th and Spruce, requires a $401 HOA fee in addition to its listing price.

    Sunny home in Washington Square brownstone asks $270K
    On the second floor of a Washington Square brownstone sits this well-lit home, which just dropped on the market for a mere $270,000. The price is almost unheard of in the Washington Square neighborhood-one of the most popular Center City residential neighborhoods-and there's a reason for it.
