  • Description

    A 1906 school house now has loft-style condos.

    No doubt the residents at 246 Fitzwater are having far more fun in this space than the kids who attended school here had. Converted to 15 condos in the early 2000s, this elevator building with parking has been made into loft-style apartments. High ceilings, tall windows, wood floors, open-plan main living spaces — many of the units in this building have great flexibility in how the space is used. Some of the condos at 246 Fitzwater have outstanding skyline views of Center City.

    Kitchen and bathroom finishes vary from unit to unit – some have had upgrades since the building was converted about 15 years ago. Some of these apartments also have had custom features added, from huge ceiling fans to skylights to contemporary flourishes that stand the test of time.

    246 Fitzwater is pet friendly. Because it does not have a lot of units but does have off street parking and relatively low condo fees, it can be hard to buy into this building. There are quite a few other similar condo buildings created from unused school houses that have sprung up in the city. Many of them also have off street parking (former playgrounds and staff parking lots) and some have a wider array of amenities than 246 Fitzwater, so contact an agent in our Philadelphia office for assistance.

About this Area

Queen Village

Queen Village is considered the oldest neighborhood among all Philadelphia real estate and is still very  residential and very historical in its character. More than 800 structures in the neighborhood are on the Philadelphia Historical Register. This concentration of 18th- and 19th-century structures (along with a just a few unique-for-Philadelphia wood houses from the late 1700s) creates some very charming streetscapes....
