There’s a Spanish-Style Mansion In Rittenhouse – And It’s For Sale
Well, we didn’t see this one coming! Nestled squarely on the corner of S 17th Street and Delancey Place (map) is a Spanish-style townhouse mansion with three-car gated parking. What the what? Indeed, the 5,400-square-foot residence actually runs from 17th (its front) to cobble-stoned Chadwick Street (its rear) and comes with a single-bedroom apartment that can be opened up and adjoined to the main floor living space.
Let’s take a look inside…
First up, that impressive living and entertaining area, which truth be told, appears to be the “Spanish” portion the listing refers to. Details here include mercer tile flooring, a fountain, and an immense stained glass window. It also boasts a stone staircase leading up to a formal living room with fireplace. The rest of the four-level home is similarly grand, although with little of the European flair we found initially.
No matter, though: the home has Juliet balconies overlooking Delancey Place, plus an old-fashioned tile bath on the floor housing the formal living, dining and kitchen areas. The third level, meanwhile, consists of a master suite with balcony and two addition bedrooms, one of which has French windows facing Delancey too. A family area/guest suite is on the fourth floor.
Hardwood pine floors are throughout. Specs and photos below.
