Rittenhouse Modern Drops to $5.9M
Tylenol heir Henry McNeil (who sold the famed “McIlhenney Mansion” at 1914 Rittenhouse Square to developer Bart Blatstein) was featured in a Wall Street Journal article about Philadelphia-area homes that have historic facades but modern interiors. The WSJ slideshow indeed demonstrates the contrast, which may or may not appeal to every buyer. But at the high end, the initial $8 million asking price was too hot to handle, it seems.
Since that time, McNeill has reduced the price to $6.85 million and now to $5.9 million. Below, there are new photos of the home since the last time it was listed.
