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.

Beds: 5
Baths: 4 Full, 3 Half
Square feet: 13,000
Estimated taxes for 2014: $17,622.50
