Converted Corner Duplex on Waverly Street in Rittenhouse Asks $800,000
Lookin’ for some space near Rittenhouse? Here’s a converted duplex tucked away on the corner of Waverly and Capitol Streets at the southern edge of Rittenhouse. In case you need to place it in your minds’ eye, it’s between 20th and 21st Streets and Pine and Lombard Streets. Are you all set now? Good.
The current owners renovated the building into their personal residence. So while the two entrances leading out to two different tiny streets may be a tad quirky, it’s true to the spirit of the home and there’s a good reason for it. The first floor is currently used as the guest room (rental for the Papal visit, anyone?) and comes complete with its own galley kitchen (Wolf range, Sub-Zero ‘fridge), full bath, gas fireplace with custom paneling and French doors that lead to a patio area. Hardwood floors are found throughout the home.
Upstairs on the second floor is where you’ll find the main custom kitchen (GE Profile) and a bedroom suite with sitting room. Off of the formal dining room room area is a wall of windows with sliding doors that lead to a covered deck with a wood burning fireplace. A similar layout awaits on the third floor of the home, including the south-facing deck in the bedroom–just swap the kitchen for a linen closet and a stacked washer/dryer from Samsung and your set.
THE FINE PRINT:
Price: $800,000 on the nose
Additional Info: Nearby parking is also available with the sale ($150/month)
