While uncertainty surrounds the future of Cliff Lee on the baseball diamond, two things are certain for the Phillies ace. One, his full-floor condo at 1706 Rittenhouse is now on the market for a downright filthy $6.9 million. Two, the place is gorgeous–plain and simple.
We’re not sure if the southpaw had a hand in decorating the spacious pad, but it’s certainly not the typical digs of an athlete. You’ll understand when you see the gallery below.
Located on the 20th floor and accessed by private elevator, the unit paints all the corners–north, south, east and west– in the view category and boasts a lovely open living space that takes advantage of the natural light from the large windows. The fireplace is a choice addition to the living room, which also offers access to the terrace.
What’s not to love about the kitchen? Those big windows lighten up the deep wood floor and cabinets and the huge center island is a great spot for entertaining. The globed overhead lamps are an elegant touch as well.
Finally, the master suite is exactly what you’d expect from an ultra-luxury unit in one of Philly’s premier addresses. It’s spacious, light-filled and features a marble-clad master bath that’s miles ahead of the ice baths in the clubhouse at Citizen’s Bank Park.
