Why Won’t This Sell?: 6BR Townhouse at 1816 Delancey

bokdelanceySure, the wallpaper is a little … dated. And the kitchen walls are sort of severe. But this is Delancey Street! And the original home of Mary Curtis Bok – yes, that Mary Curtis Bok. Why in heaven’s name has this home been on the market for more than a year, Philadelphia?
In addition to its historical singularity, this home boasts more than 4,600 square feet of space on the city’s swankiest street. The four-story townhouse includes six bedrooms, five full bathrooms, three powder rooms and an entryway that looks fit to welcome Mary Poppins. Plus more fireplaces than you can shake a stick at and several metric tons of marble. And an elevator for good measure.
According to Estately, this place has been on the market for more than 472 days. Get it together, buyers!
