Massive Compound in Queen Village Gets Major Price Chop
Queen Village is a classic Philadelphia neighborhood with a wide range of houses found on streets of many sizes. On one hand, you have the cramped and quirky Trinity, a style near and dear to our hearts. On the other, you have million-dollar rowhomes that offer a unique blend of old world flare and modern sophistication. 113-21 Bainbridge Street is on a whole different level.
Comprised of five parcels, the home is more of a private compound and actually $200,000 cheaper than when we featured in back in May. We’d forgive if you thought it was an apartment or condo building–it’s just that big. The listing remarks that the home is “imposing” from the street and anyone who has ever walked by certainly knows the address carries a sense of intrigue.
Everything about this place is over the top. The tall brick wall that meets you at the street. The double set of stairs in the courtyard leading up to the front door flanked by columns. The landscaping and wrought iron fences and gates in said courtyard and garden area, you almost can’t believe this place is in the city.
Inside the home is just as magical. Not only is the main staircase a sight to behold, it’s topped by a stained glass dome that also has enough swag to hold an ornate chandelier.
With expansive rooms, soaring ceilings, multiple fireplaces and a hot tub on the roof deck, the home is built for entertaining, inside and out. Features like Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, an elevator, security system and parking for up to four cars, the place is as luxurious as it is private, even if you end up replacing some of the wallpaper.
