Two Center City condos in a Frank Furness building have recently come on the market for less than $300,000 a piece.

The condos are in the Furness Flats, a building on 13th Street between Locust and Spruce that was converted in 2008.

Furness Flats is comprised of two buildings that were built by the Philadelphia-born architect in 1882. The two homes were originally called the John T. Lewis House and Edward S. Beale House, according to

According to listing agent Michelle Ashley, the built-in bookcase is the only original feature inside. She said some of the other units have original crown moldings and fireplaces. Per the listing, the condo has an open living room and dining area with high ceilings, hardwood floors, and two sides of expansive windows.

The other condo for sale - Unit F - is a bit smaller and is priced at $265,000. It has one bedroom and one bath, and is about 615 square feet. The unit has an open living room and dining room, a kitchen with granite countertops, and hardwood floors thoughout. It's listed with John Featherman of BHHS Fox & Roach.

Two other Frank Furness homes in Center City are currently available: a mansion on Spruce Street for $2.95 million, and a row home on Irving Street for $2,900 per month.
