Any wine drinkers out there? The recently listed Jewel of Passyunk, a house so called in the listing, is owned by a celebrated wine aficionado who has a custom-built wine cellar inside the home.
A double-wrought iron gate bars the entrance to this five-story property, guarding an interior that consists of a vestibule entryway with closet and bathroom, custom kitchen with a 6-seat, granite-topped island, sunken living room with French door balcony, and a fitness center with sauna and hot tub.
The game room (located on the fourth floor) currently sports a pool table, video games, and custom-built wet bar with stained glass inlay. Wide-planked hardwoods are throughout the home, while an elevator hits up each floor. Other features to note: roof deck, two-car garage, stucco yard with garden and storage shade, and views of the Ben Franklin and Walt Whitman bridges.
