There’s something alluring about a circular kitchen.

This home has a lot to offer for a five-bedroom, single-family Center City home priced under a million bucks. To wit: several fireplaces; a yard; one-year prepaid gated parking; a separate au pair suite with a full kitchen; multiple skylights, including one that leads to the roof via ladder; a covered portico balcony with great views; plenty of storage space; period details like tile and wood built-ins and hardwood floors; central air; a wood-burning stove in a bathroom; and a circular kitchen.

Why a circular kitchen should appeal is a mystery, but I find it very attractive. I suppose if I were a good cook, rather than a proficient microwaver, I would like the way a circle could facilitate a certain order to my food prep. But as it is now, I simply find it a comforting architectural detail. Like I kind of want to sleep in there.


This four-story-plus townhouse is in a good location too: Ninth and Spruce. Low crime, proximity to superb restaurants and hospitals, and just a few blocks from the Broad Street subway. Gallery below.
