Stop What You’re Doing: The Anne Tyng House in Fitler Square Is On the Market
Yes, we spazzed out too! Because though the “crash course history” sphere may have relegated her role in the field of architecture to simply being “Louis Kahn’s muse”, we know better: Anne Tyng was an architect and theorist of renown in her own right. And even if we didn’t know that, this mid-century modern jewel would certainly set us straight.
Nestled in Philadelphia’s Fitler Square neighborhood, the home is one of wonderfully striking details. Case in point, a hidden Murphy bed on the second floor, where two rooms offer built-ins and a full bathroom with separate tub and shower. The third floor, meanwhile, has a seating area, fireplace, four Juliet balconies, and a loft bedroom with 360-degree view of the city. (To be frank, that bedroom alone has our inner house hunter salivating!)
Rustic exposed beams, top of the line appliances, and a custom-designed sink are all present in the kitchen, where Heath Ceramic tile and a Viking range are also featured. Listed for $615,00, the home offers just over 1,300 square feet and is within walking distance to the Schuylkill River Park, Rittenhouse Square, and several restaurants.
