“Uber-luxe”–that’s what the listings says, and who would argue? On the heels of a glowing write-up in the Inquirer for its remarkable Carl Dranoff-guided turnaround, 10 Rittenhouse lists this two-bedroom/two-and-a-half bath penthouse that has north and west views. The photos give an idea of what the unit looks like, but the buyer of 3103 will be able to choose the color of the kitchen cabinets, countertop, and backsplash; the hardwood floors; the bathroom marble; and the carpeting in the master bedroom.
In the most recent Philly Style, Rittenhouse brokers Mary Genovese Colvin and Laurie Phillips were asked what appeals most to buyers of city condos. Genovese Colvin said, “[O]ne-floor living, security, and on-site parking. Many of the condos offer large windows with great views and on-site features including a gym and security.” This penthouse fits that bill, though the listing says garage parking costs $60,000.
Other amenities include a gorgeous saline pool, a “gathering salon,” wine storage, bike storage and a yoga studio, as well as one of those 10-year tax abatements that makes people so angry.
