Once upon a time I died and went to heaven … real estate heaven, that is.
Regardless, I imagine the two to be fairly similar—fun, fluffy and absolutely fabulous. And, while I’m still alive and well, I promise you my heart skipped a beat (or two!) when an uber-chic and indescribably elegant apartment in Rittenhouse Square caught my eye.
Situated in the heart of the City of Brotherly Love, the 2,209-square-foot unit responsible for my momentary loss of consciousness is a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom condominium apartment in the Robert A.M. Stern-designed 10 Rittenhouse Square tower overlooking Center City. Sounds great, but there’s more. Once past the foyer, you enter a living space accented by floor-to-ceiling windows, making the view worth the big bucks—2,795,000 big bucks to be exact.
Hardwood floors and textured wallpaper keep the main living space fluid and airy, perfect for entertaining guests. The granite kitchen and bathrooms along with brass hardware give the space a contemporary and fresh vibe. Complete with a fabulous breakfast nook and simple yet unconventional light fixtures in every room, this property is a versatile backdrop for a mixture of timeless and timely design pieces.
The master bedroom is truly indulgent with his and her walk-in closets, a double vanity, an enclosed rain shower and a deep jet bathtub. The home features two additional bedrooms with en suite bathrooms that are modeled in similar vein as the master.
The lucky homeowner to move into this upscale pad will have a wide range of building amenities at their disposal. These perks include a swimming pool, state-of-the-art gym, on-site parking, 24-hour concierge service and more.
The prime location, gorgeous interior and exceptional aesthetic make for a home that will keep jaws dropping for as long as unit 2702 shall live.
