As one would expect from a home custom renovated by the firm Amburn/Jarosinski, this one is capped in high-end contemporary finishes. Random fact? Like another one of their spectacular creations we’ve covered on Property, it’s on South 6th Street, though further down into the recesses of Queen Village and with a tremendously polished roof deck.

Listed for $1.25 million, the property sits on a double lot consisting of 769 S 6th St. and 754-56 S Randolph St. Both are included in the sale. Inside, the home brags a Niles sound system and wide-plank hardwood floors throughout. The kitchen, outfitted with Viking appliances and Lagos Azul countertops, has an island with rare six-inch thick marble salvaged from Independence Mall. And as already alluded to, there’s that sweet roof deck, which boasts a hot tub, 360-degree views, and sitting and dining areas. Check out the photos below!

When David Amburn, one half of the well-known architecture firm of Amburn/Jarosinski, passed away in 2012, Jerry Jarosinski told the Inquirer the work of the designers of Kansas City Prime, River City Diner and Arroyo Grill had “significantly changed the face of Manayunk.” The firm’s work was also included in the book The Unexpected House in a City of Tradition, and Amburn was chair of the Historical Commission’s architectural review committee.

Meanwhile, Jarosinski was chairman of COLLAB in 1991 and 1993. In 2006, he was made an honorary committee member for his decade of service.

Right before Amburn passed away, he designed one last home in Harleysville, PA–for Jaronsinski.
