Delancey Street zigzags east to west through Philadelphia and we are of the opinion that just about every block of it is near perfect. The blocks around Rittenhouse Square get a lot of press, but West Philly Delancey is lovely and Society Hill is no slouch, either.
This corner home has been on the market just shy of two weeks. It features a fireplace made from original Pennsylvania blue marble that dates back to 1831. The fireplaces and built-in cabinetry throughout are excellent period details but the kitchen truly stands out. The copper hood, exposed beams and brick hearth combine for a striking colonial effect. But of course the kitchen is full of modern luxuries and high-end appliances.
The master bedroom includes access to a deck and there is a fourth bedroom that spans the entire fourth floor in the home. Outside, the home also includes garage parking for two and recent re-pointing of the brick exterior. Windows, roof and heating are all new. In conclusion, all bedrooms should include chandeliers.
