I cover so many ridiculous, palatial manses on the CENTERfold that it can sometimes be easy to forget the fact that, sometimes, simplicity is the most attractive thing in the world. I am over-the-moon crazy about 2508 South Street, located over in Graduate Hospital. It’s a roomy (almost 2,500 square feet!) 3-bed, 2.5-bath townhome nestled in the coveted Greenfield school […]
