No. 3 of 14 reasons 925 Clinton Street is a knockout.
Said it before and we’ll say it again: Clinton Street is simply one of the most beautiful in the city, and its homeowners tend to feel great pride of place. “Clinton Street is magic,” says Dan McQuade, a local journalist (and Philly Post contributor) who lives on the 900 block. “It’s a gorgeous small side street that’s somehow wide enough for enormous houses and two lanes of cars. The only downside is pizza drivers don’t know what street you’re saying, but they usually get it when you say ‘like Hillary and Bill.’”
When a Clinton Street house comes up for sale, it’s assuredly beautifully taken care of and filled with period details, as is the case with this Clinton Street house for sale, a 3,700-square-foot four-bedroom. But you’ve heard that before, so let’s get more specific. What are the key things that make this great? Let’s start outside.
Clinton Street is the East-of-Broad Delancey–pretty and historic, narrow and shaded by trees. It runs for two blocks between Ninth and 11th, and Spruce and Pine. Rentals are very hard to come by on Clinton. Why would anyone on one of the city’s best streets in one of the city’s best neighborhoods ever want to move? And why would anyone in this exquisite townhouse with its luscious marble bathroom want to get out of the tub?
Well, who knows, but let’s not look a gift horse in the mouth. This mid-19th-century home in Washington Square West retains all kinds of delicious period details, including stained glass, marble fireplaces, marble mantels, antique light fixtures and original wood floors. But all the modern conveniences are there, including a Viking six-burner range, a seamless shower stall and a gated parking spot.
