Last time we checked in on 1737 Chestnut, it was at the lovely 11th floor unit that offered you a chance to get in on the Rittenhouse views without necessarily breaking the million-dollar mark. Today is decidedly different, as unit 1200 has been revamped by Philly’s own Cecil Baker and Chris Beardsley Architects to provide a heightened experience at 18th and Chestnut.

Sure, it’s one floor higher than 1100, but at 2,974-square-feet, it’s also much bigger than the unit below and, at $1,690,000, it’s a lot more expensive as well. To literally put the cherry on top, there’s a massive deck with skyline and Rittenhouse Square views.

We don’t get much in the way of a gallery (there are only 9 images), but what we do see is a chic, contemporary unit that incorporates the pre-war architectural touches that make 1737 Chestnut so lovely, including tall ceilings and arched windows.

Those of you who are looking for style, head to the master bath, which is decked out with a sliding privacy door, dual vanity, glass encased shower and a separate bath. The listing also states that there is a separate seating area with western city views–not bad, if we do say so ourselves.
