This $3.5 Million Rittenhouse Square Penthouse Is Wonderfully GGG

This beautiful penthouse at 220 is described as “Grande, Glamorous, Gracious” in its listings copy–hence GGG. When it comes to living on Rittenhouse Square, those are pretty much the three adjectives that count (even with an extra “e.”) GGG is also the way that wise relationship columnist Dan Savage characterizes a perfect partner: “Good, Giving and Game,” aka, kind and generous and willing to try something once. Three Gs are good.

Of course, more than three Gs are required to take possession of this exquisite place, which has more than 6,000 square feet of living space, private elevator access, a glass-walled solarium, wrap-around terrace, marble and built-in everywhere you look, and painted ceilings and elegant decorative touches in the circular reception room and similar spaces.

    It looks like Liberace threw up all over this place, my God! You can absolutely see the potential for a sleek, modern penthouse beneath all that goldleafing.

  • You Can’t Buy Taste

    I’m with Justin–this place is awful. And calling it “gracious” has got to be some kind of joke.

    3 G’s = gross, grosser, grossest. And if ugly isn’t enough of a description, one could say that it’s VERY dated.

    It’s not the modern taste, but it is far from ugly. It’s an absolutely lovely example of my Italian grandmother’s dream house.
