Connor Barwin, everyone’s favorite world-changing, bike-riding, Jane Jacobs-quoting member of the Philadelphia Eagles, just listed his super-cool condo in Rittenhouse for $1.25 million. Don’t freak out, Eagles fans. We know the past few weeks have been wild and crazy, but Barwin’s not going anywhere, except for some new digs of course.

As you know, Barwin’s style skews towards a hipstery/millennial/guy-with-great-hair kind of vibe, and it certainly shows in his home (note the Miles Davis poster and eclectic furniture). Located on the corner of 18th and Pine, the home is one of three condos in a former mansion. It has its own private entrance, large windows and, yes, there’s a basement featuring an original bar that dates back to the 1920s. It was featured in this video from ESPN, which shined some light on Barwin’s revitalization efforts with Urban Roots at Ralph Brooks Park in Point Breeze (not Breeze Point, c’mon Rick Reilly).

So if you’re looking to live in the former home of an athlete with an insanely cool bar near Rittenhouse Square, this is probably your dream home. The first floor features a bright open floor plan with custom scraped hardwood floors. The large L-shaped island with granite counter tops defines the kitchen area, which has flaunts high-end stainless steel appliances and an over sized sink.

Upstairs, the fireplace, tall windows and master bath with white marble tiles help make the master suite a real standout. Kelly Betley, listing agent on the property, thinks this place will sell quickly. If you’re interested, give her a call at 610-212-8975.
