You Can Huff and Puff Over Our Brick Picks!

We all know the story of The Three Little Pigs and that it did not bode so well for the pigs who built their houses out of straw and sticks. But the big bad wolf? He could not blow down the third pig's brick house.  Why? Because brick is strong, smart, and classic.

There are homes out there that are just not built to last, but solid brick homes can stand strong for a long time if maintained well. We have a few brick listings that particularly stand out, and even something for those with a modern brick taste, so read on for our Brick Picks!

1140-44 N. Orianna Street and 1146 N Orianna Street is a series of  New Construction brick homes in Northern Liberties. These 4 Story 3 Bedroom Homes are simply stunning with enclosed private rear yards and square footage ranging up to 3,000 sf.  The neutral brick on these homes is sleek and subtle, incredibly clean-looking.

2415 S. Reese Street (at left) is a completely updated brick 2 Bedroom Home in South Philadelphia. It has a private rear yard and a nicely maintained and handsome brick front.

1903 N 2nd Street (at right) is a 3 Story 4 Bedroom Rehabbed Home in Old Kensington with a rear yard. In addition to a brick exterior, it also features some interior brick.
