It is one thing to boast a few fireplaces in your federalist style home. It is another to have a decorative one in your bathroom. That’s a stretch even by Society Hill standards. By our count there are at least six others throughout the 1811 townhouse.
The 22-foot-wide home features a double-door entryway leading to a stained-glass foyer. Random-width pine flooring is original to the six-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home, along with the nearly 12-foot ceilings and heavy doors. The kitchen, of course, has been fully updated with Sub-Zero, Wolf and Miele appliances.
Off the family room lie a patio and vibrant garden. The already lovely outdoor spaces are completely outdone by two-car parking that is included with this property.
