Stately 121-Year-Old Spruce Street Stunner

feat

Rittenhouse Square: where the stately elm trees are almost as old as the 19th-century homes and where a fully finished basement level is marketed not just as an in-law suite but as potential au-pair quarters.

This nearly 6,000-square-foot home features four floors above ground as well as the underground suite. There are seven bedrooms with five full baths and a powder room. Of course any home in Rittenhouse worth its salt also includes a library and a garden, and this one comes with its own 100-year-old elm.




The rest of the finishes in this extraordinary home are similarly luxurious. Beautiful crown molding and ceiling medallions abound, along with other custom woodwork. The home includes a three-zoned HVAC system (and obviously its own security). Topping even the meticulous bedrooms, though, are the baths. The enchanted garden powder room is only eclipsed by the pink marble soaking tub.
