Ever wanted to live in a real designer showcase home?

If you have, we’ve got one for you this week.

This home on Front Street in Society Hill, the end unit in U.S. Construction’s Adagio development, was Philadelphia magazine’s Design Home 2016, and it’s now on the market.

The photo above and those in the gallery below show what some of the region’s best designers did with this spectacular space. This time, however, you get to be the designer.

The home boasts spectacular amenities including a stellar roof deck which is accessible via the six-stop residential elevator. Complete with a plunge pool, wet bar, outdoor kitchen and ample seating opportunities, the rooftop is a sweet escape from hectic city life and an ideal entertainment location.

Dual HVAC systems, security alarm, video intercom system and a home automation system are a few of the more advanced perks in this home. Architecturally, the space has an airy and modern feel; it features Marvin windows, Grohe light fixtures, solid core interior doors and a metal handrail system.

This home also has a media room, finished basement with a laundry room attached and all new kitchen appliances. And here’s an added bonus: this residence is an Energy Star-qualified home with maximum efficiency.

Leave your cars behind in the two-car garage and take a leisurely stroll to the Delaware riverfront, Penn’s Landing Park (soon to get bigger and better) and the many restaurants and shops of Old City.
