Walk the lovely streets of Washington Square West long enough and you’ll find yourself on the 900 and 1000 blocks of Clinton Street.

Seemingly tucked away from the world between historic Pennsylvania Hospital and Louis I. Kahn Park, these two blocks–lined with stately homes with polished shutters, brick sidewalks and gorgeous trees that hang over the street–conjure up many of the romantic visions of why you live in Philadelphia in the first place, and why you love it oh-so-very much.

Newly listed at $1,795,000, 924 Clinton Street certainly merits a long look by high-end buyers, and not just for its address. The dramatic center hall entry commands attention from the street, and you might not want to leave once you’ve checked out the inside.

The entryway divides the first floor into pleasant rooms (a living room with a cozy fireplace and library with built-ins) and is mirrored to create the dramatic access point to the circular staircase, which the listing states is original to the home.

Pine floors are found throughout and the gourmet kitchen features high-end appliances from Viking, Bosch and SubZero. The kitchen kind of extends into an entertaining/family room, thanks to to a large bar area built into the room. A private deck is also accessible from the kitchen, so outdoor dining is a piece of cake.

Even more Vitamin D can be had in the lovely sunroom, which features wall-to-wall windows and a set of French doors. The room gives you the opportunity to really bring the outside in all year round and overlooks a wonderful garden/patio area.

Travel up the circular staircase to the second and third floors and you’ll find well-appointed rooms and decked out bathrooms, including a thoroughly modern bath attached to the third floor master suite.

One thing that really makes this home standout is its flexibility. The lower level features a den and a kitchenette, and the listing states it could be an ideal spot for an au pair suite, in-law suite, or even as a separate apartment (Hello, Airbnb!) that currently rents for $1,085/month.
