It’s fitting that this house comes back on the market a day after the world celebrated the 111th birthday of Theodor Geisel, a.k.a Dr. Seuss. As you’ll see from the gallery, it’s definitely one of the most imaginative interior decorating jobs you’re going to see. Call it what you will, but the fact is that this home sits squarely on the 200 block of Delancey Street in Society Hill, meaning it’s on one the finest streets this city has to offer. Remember, it’s all about location, location, location– even Seuss knew that!

While we’re excited to hear all about the high ceilings, leaded glass, flooring of both marble and wood, a bi-level den and a “charming red brick patio”, the other fact is that even the listing can’t seem to get past the overabundance of wallpaper and artwork:

This home is completely personalized throughout with many creative, artistic paintings, wallpapers, tile and more– please bring your designer to create your own masterpiece out of the tremendous space this home offers!

We’ll wrap this up with one of our favorite quotes from Dr. Seuss: “Why fit in when you’re born to stand out?”
