Like many on the 2000 block of Pine Street, this home makes a good impression. Outside, its brick & stone exterior sports lovely features like an elegant bow window. Inside, possibilities abound for what to do with each floor. The first-floor apartment can serve as an office space or in-law suite. The garden entrance could lead to a small kitchen.
The second floor is reached via original staircase from the main landing. It has an open living room/dining room with high ceilings. Ample storage and workspace can be found in the light-filled eat-in kitchen overlooking the street.
Meanwhile, the third-story has a living space, hall bathroom, and the potential for a rear study or bedroom.
There is a full wall of closets in the fourth-floor master suite, and a veranda that offers views of Pine Street.
However, for all its appealing qualities, the selling point for this Rittenhouse townhouse could be the rooftop potential. After all, the words "elegant Pine Street house" don't typically connote "inspiring skyline view." But this home makes it possible.
