On the Market: Contemporary Condo Hideaway in Society Hill
This bi-level Abbotts Square condo for sale offers not only style but also peace and quiet, as it faces the development's interior courtyard and away from the Head House Square hustle and bustle.
One thing many Society Hill residents prize is the neighborhood’s tranquility. With only a small shopping strip in its center and no mixed-use main streets, it’s the most uniformly residential of all Center City neighborhoods.
One corner of the neighborhood is an exception to this rule — its southeast corner, home to Head House Square. This restaurant and entertainment district just off South Street does attract crowds and noise, though neither reach objectionable proportions.
Fortunately for those who want easy access to that bustle but don’t even want to put up with that, there are plenty of places to live just off the square that offer peace and quiet. This handsome bi-level Abbotts Square condo for sale is one of them.
You enter it via a landscaped gated lane off Lombard Street. By the front entrance you will find a fenced-in patio that offers privacy on top of the tranquility.
Inside, this condo for sale features striking contemporary style in every one of its rooms.
It has a spacious and well-equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar that adjoins the dining room.
The equally spacious living room has a sliding door that opens out onto that patio.
You’ll find another sliding door in the upstairs master bedroom. It opens onto a private balcony overlooking the courtyard. The master suite also has another unusual feature: a custom-designed home office space.
The second bedroom features a large arched window.
And all of this is just steps away from South Street, Head House Square, the Delaware riverfront and SEPTA transit service to points beyond. But you wouldn’t know it by just looking around when you step out your front door.
