Just Listed: Spacious Condo and Terrace in Logan Square
From the terrace that spans almost the entire length of this spiffy high-rise condo, you get an up-close-and-personal view of LOVE Park and City Hall.
Looking for a room with a view?
You’ll be hard pressed to find one as nice as this one.
And I’m speaking of both the room and the view.
The room is the expansive living room of this top-residence-floor condo for sale at The Phoenix in Logan Square. And the view is the one of City Hall and environs you get from the expansive 960-square-foot terrace just outside it.
That terrace, facing 16th Street, is one of the largest in the city, and from it you get an unobstructed view of City Hall and LOVE Park.
It’s attached to a breathtakingly beautiful modern condo with deluxe amenities.
Its owner, Pamela Doggett, had rented the unit that makes up most of this condo in this building’s earlier incarnation as rental apartments. After a round-the-world cruise in 2009, she decided there was no place like home, so she bought it when she found it was on the market. A few years later, when her second child was on the way, she bought the unit next door and reconfigured the entire ensemble.
The living room, dining room and kitchen of the original unit got combined into a single open space that gets plenty of light through the French doors that open onto the terrace. It combines elements of a library, a lounge and a living room with its crystal fireplace.
The kitchen, which is integral with this space, features a restaurant-style Sub-Zero refrigerator, an induction cooktop, a huge Viking wine fridge and a walk-in pantry.
Doggett turned the unit next door into a sumptuous master suite. The old living room became the bedroom, and the old bedroom became a large walk-in closet.
It has its own private terrace with the same spectacular view.
The former kitchen still has its espresso maker, which means you can rise and enjoy your morning coffee without leaving your bedroom. There’s also a huge Fort Knox safe in this space for your valuables.
And the stylish master bathroom includes a shower with a huge rain head as well as a regular shower head and body sprays.
Two other bedrooms flank the living room.
And if your own terrace isn’t enough to accommodate your party, there’s an even larger wraparound terrace on the amenity floor one floor above you. That’s just one of the many top-notch amenities the building offers.
Another amenity you enjoy here and in no other Center City apartment building: The ability to leave your home and walk to offices, shops, restaurants and City Hall without getting wet when it rains. The Phoenix elevators head directly to the concourse leading to Suburban Station next door. From there, you have access to the Penn Center concourse system, the South Broad and Market Street concourses, and both Comcast towers.
Of course, when the weather’s nice, you probably won’t want to take the elevator down at all.
