Are you sitting down? Please, take a seat–a rare piece of Philadelphia real estate just hit the market. Listed for $7.5 million, 1910 Rittenhouse Square is so gorgeous that it was once dubbed “Philadelphia’s Most Extravagant Townhouse” in a video done by Plum TV.

While the video was merely a showcase of the stunning home, you can now own the 4-story gem that’s a few steps from Rittenhouse Square. In fact, it boasts unobstructed views of The Square and so much more.

Trust us, you’re not going to want to miss this gallery.

Enter the home through the front door (which comes complete with custom iron work from Bob Phillips) and you’ll immediately be taken aback by the grandeur found in each and every room. No luxurious detail was spared in designing this home: glorious chandeliers, multiple working fireplaces with intricately crafted mantles, fine marble and hardwood floors and stained glass windows.  There is even a mural on the ceiling in the dining room that was hand painted by a “well-known European church painter,” according to the listing (and in the video).

The atrium runs the height of the home and is topped by a custom installation from Charles Ross that spreads colorful prisms around the grand staircase at various times throughout the day.

At the top of that staircase is the master bedroom and it’s one of the most uniques rooms we’ve seen.  Encompassing the entire fourth floor, the room has curved walls–an unusual architectural detail for the time it was built–and also flaunts three rounded porthole windows. You can look upon Rittenhouse Square as if you were on the most exclusive of luxury liners.

The contemporary kitchen features high-end finishes such as custom stainless steel cabinets, granite counter tops and a Sub Zero refrigerator.

The third floor is also one of our favorites. It consists of three bedrooms, a full bathroom and a media room, which has a large projection screen and beautiful built-in wood cabinets. The rest of the home is decked out with two study areas, an entertainment room with wet bar and a two-car garage built into the basement.
