House vs. House: Rittenhouse Square Neighbors Edition

So they’re not technically on the same street, but given that you can get to 1725 Lombard from Addison Street (it’s part of Addison Mews so an easement allows for this), not to mention they’re almost back-to-back location, we think it’s safe to deem these two neighbors. Here’s what each has to offer:

1725 Lombard is in possession of a three-story stairwell with a skylight, landscaped brick patio, and renovated kitchen with mahogany cabinets, granite tops, and stainless steel appliances. Its open floor plan living area comes with a working fireplace and there are two rooms with a refurbished bathroom on the second floor. The third level contains two more rooms, one of which is the master suite with a brand new custom-designed bathroom (it has a walk-in shower and radian heat flooring). A full basement is also available.

1737 Addison comes with parking and many of its original features have been refinished, including its original random-width hardwood floors. Then, like the Lombard home, it has outside rear access from its lower level where there’s a guest bedroom and office/den area (a wood-burning fireplace is here too). The dining room has deck access (and a second fireplace) and another office is on the third floor, along with a laundry area and master bedroom with skylight, wall of energy-efficient windows, and newer bathroom. A custom-built wine storage area is on the main floor. Read more »

Spotted on Spruce: Six-Bedroom Brownstone Relisted for $450,000 Less

Jetted blue tub aside, this home feels ready-made for a period film starring Kate Winslet, naturally, and Bradley Cooper in his first stab at an early 20th-century piece dealing with the lurid entanglements of Philadelphia’s high society. In other words, it’s a pretty fancy house. (Also, if you laughed at my latter casting choice, the Academy has nominated the guy for acting three times. You’re telling me he couldn’t do it? Pshaw!)

If the home seems familiar, that’s because we featured it last April in a Brownstone vs. Brownstone showdown. Back then it was listed for over $2.2. million, followed by an August removal from the market. Now it’s been relisted for $1.78 million. Know any production companies ready to shoot a prequel to a retelling of the Stanford White murder? His killer, Harry K. Thaw, lived three blocks up from this very residence, which could serve as Thaw’s home in this imaginary movie, am I right?

In any case, here are the home’s specifics:

About two-three blocks from Rittenhouse Square is this 17th Street townhouse, a home situated between Pine and Spruce that’s been appointed with, by the looks of the photos, a pristine renovation by Adam Zangrilli of Zangrilli Design – Build.

Granite envelopes the kitchen’s island and counter tops, while the custom cabinetry is made of solid cherry wood, and stainless steel appliances boast manufacturers like Dacor and Bosch. Each of the three bedrooms has the luxury of having an en-suite bathroom, but it’s the master suite that lucked out: full floor bedroom, exposed brick, walk-in closet, a “spa-style” bathroom, plus, a small bonus room (might we suggest a potential office? newborn nursery room?).  Up on the third floor is one of the washer/dryer sets (the other is in the dry unfinished basement). Additional info and parking details below.

Single-Bedroom Condo Available in What Was Once a Victorian Mansion

Okay, so the kitchen may be just like any other room where one prepares food these days (see: stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and potential room to make it an eat-in kitchen) and the bathroom, which includes the washer and dryer, is also a modern day space, but we must say the rest of this restored luxury unit at 2024 Spruce has distinctly Victorian touches.

Of course, that is to be expected as the building it’s housed in was once a Victorian mansion. Today, the structure boasts six condo units that were restored six years ago. This one, available for $449,500, offers over 900 square feet and has high ceilings (over 13 feet), curved leaded glass, moldings throughout, and a decorative fireplace in the living room.

Art Lovers Are Moving Out of This Rittenhouse Condo. Anyone Interested?

If property records are up to date, then the lawyer duo who bought this home back in late 2009 are now parting ways with their art-filled condo at 1900 Rittenhouse (Seriously, we don’t remember the last time we actually saw genuine artwork hanging in a bathroom, as opposed to, you know, a stock landscape image from IKEA or something.)

The unit offers over 2,000 square feet of space and is comprised of a living room with fireplace, newer kitchen, two bedroom suites, and dining space. And who knows, perhaps you can even talk someone into letting you have that Warhol Grace Kelly print? It may or may not be real, but given that this place is going for $1,725,000, we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt.

There Is a Single-Bedroom For Rent Near Rittenhouse Square

A roof deck and high speed elevator of some of the things residents in this “boutique building” on Walnut get to share, but the biggest bonus is probably its location: the residence is right off Rittenhouse Square.

This unit–no. 7–also has the added measure of brand new appliances in its quartz counter-topped kitchen. Bathrooms consist of porcelain tile flooring and shower surround, as well as wet bed shower floors.

Remember back in December when we featured this home at 1937 Panama Street? Back then, you were probably gushing over the chance to live on a quaint, tree-lined street in the heart of Philly’s top neighborhood. If the Juliet balcony overlooking Panama Street didn’t help you get beyond the near-million dollar price tag a few months ago, perhaps the recent $70,000 price cut will.

Here’s a refresher on what this place has to offer:

Wouldn’t you like Claude Giroux as a neighbor? This unit at 10 Rittenhouse, the same condo building the Flyers’ captain is said to have been moving into last year, is on the prowl for a new owner.

Noteworthy features specific to this unit are its sleek Poggenpohl-designed kitchen (they make very, very, nice kitchens, we must say), bathrooms made of marble, and a sweet balcony. Meanwhile, building amenities include gym, pool, garage parking with valet service, as well as 24-hour concierge and doorman services.

Further details and listing info below!

New Floors, New Kitchen, New Deck … All on One of Philly’s Prettiest Streets!

Remember when the Huffington Post called Addison Street “arguably the prettiest street in the entire Northeast”? Well, they did, which means this newly renovated residence on Addison’s 1800 block could really have something going for it even if it weren’t such a find in and of itself.

In addition to having its exterior reconditioned, the inside has both new and restored original pine floors, historic staircase with new pine treads/risers, revamped kitchen with SubZero and Wolf appliances (plus, farmhouse sink, shaker cabinets, and soapstone counters), and pendant and LED lighting. Exposed brick is also on the first level.
