What’s better than one beautiful unit at Rittenhouse Square’s Dorchester? Two combined units taking up one massive corner space at the iconic high-rise.

The current owner has lived in the building for 25 years in different units, which makes him a Dorchester devotee. “It’s a special place to me and my family,” he says. This particular suite is unique, he notes, because it combines a two-bedroom facing Rittenhouse Square with a south-facing one bedroom for a three-bedroom with views of both the park and South Philadelphia. And the skyline views are amazing as well. In fact, the dedicated website has a gallery comprised of view photos alone.


The owner says there are over $350,000 of updates in this home­, which includes a master suite marble bathroom (separate soaking tub, of course) and a kitchen with Sub Zero, GE Profile, Bosch, Hans Grohe and Kohler appliances.

Two terraces provide about 200 square feet of additional living space as well as those aforementioned views. And one of the Dorchester's best amenities is a lovely rooftop pool with its own panoramic vista.
