Last spring Tylenol heir Henry McNeil sold the famed “McIlhenney Mansion” at 1914 Rittenhouse Square to developer Bart Blatstein to serve as Blatstein’s private residence. A couple months later, his own home at 19th and Delancey was featured in a Wall Street Journal article about Philadelphia homes that are like real-estate jack-in-the-boxes: From behind a classic Philadelphia historic exterior springs an interior transformed into a wholly modern space.

McNeill put that home up for sale at a stupendous asking price of $8 million, of which we remarked at the time: “Best of luck to you, sir.”


Now McNeill has reduced the price to $6.85 million. Below, the specs of the home and a gallery.

    Now WHY would someone do something like that to what, I assume, was a lovely old home with lots of character?

      The house was previously used as a law firm so I suspect that most of the old character that you crave was removed for that user. At least it was reconfigured back into a single-family home!
