The next FIFA World Cup probably won’t be in Philly (not that many care, I presume), but for fans of the game, this custom-built stone residence could keep you hyped up for the next tournament: the 1,600-square-foot finished lower level has walls and ceilings made of rock fiber, a material the listing says “allows for indoor fun to swing a club or kick soccer balls.”
Take that, rainy days!
Club-swinging and ball-kicking aside, however, the basement also has walk out French doors. (So maybe don’t aim for the doors.) If the ball playing is designated to outdoors, the backyard offers privacy to do just that.
Back inside, the first floor is comprised of a kitchen with vaulted breakfast room, a formal dining room, and a living room with custom millwork and fireplace. A study, additional rear staircase, and vaulted conservatory with French doors and balcony views make up the rest.
Upstairs, double doors lead into the expansive master suite with a tray ceiling, his/her walk-in closets, and a bath with jetted soaking tub and tumbled marble shower with seamless door. The laundry and additional bedrooms, one of which has a Jack and Jill bathroom, are here too.
Also on the premises is a three-car garage.
