Let’s count the ways we can tell this contemporary Chestnut Hill home was owned by a designer:
- There is a cut-out in the courtyard, allowing a tree to grow unimpeded
- Sleek, clean lines combined with midcentury modern furniture everywhere
- Dramatic light fixtures
The listing tells us this home underwent “significant cosmetic and mechanical improvements” while designers owned the home. We assume they include the magnificent kitchen, which features custom cabinetry, Durat countertops, cork flooring and luxury appliances. While everything in this home looks professionally decorated and designed, it may be most readily apparent in what we assume is the master bath. The spa-like atmosphere is emphasized with an oversized soaking tub that looks like something straight out of a Rescue Rittenouse dream.
Outside, the property has been designed just as thoughtfully. The central terrace boasts a built-in grill station, a fire pit and a dining area. A second flagstone patio also provides views of the grounds. The landscaped property also includes an attached two-car garage and a shed as well as a custom-made treehouse.
