Just Listed: Renovated Tri-Level Condo in Rittenhouse
Living at the top has its privileges. Especially when you live at the top of a beautifully restored, historic 1860 mansion with one of the most sought-after addresses in the city.
How’s this for a bargain? $1,000 per square foot?
Once you’ve seen how elegant and loaded this tri-level condo for sale in a sensitively restored 1860 mansion on Delancey Street is, you might well agree that it’s a bargain at twice the price.
The team who brought this mid-19th-century mansion into the 21st century gave it not only an architecturally sensitive makeover but an environmentally conscious one, as this building is now LEED certified.
Which does not mean that they skimped on the quality of materials or the creature comforts.
One of two units taking up the top two floors of this townhouse, it features a spacious, open, 24-foot-wide main floor.
The rehabbers took care to make this open space a unified whole, with Pennsylvania white oak floors, hand-cut mahogany walls and 15-foot-high ceilings.
The kitchen has Kahle cabinets to match along with a host of goodies: A wet bar. A built-in wine rack and wine fridge. A 10-foot-long marble-topped island with bar seating. Top-of-the-line appliances, including a 46-inch Viking six-burner-plus-grill gas range with double oven. If you’re not an accomplished chef when you move in, you will be one soon enough. (Or you can just hire one — they’ll have everything they need to turn out spectacular meals here.)
Upstairs, each of the two bedrooms has a wood-burning fireplace and large windows that let in plenty of light. The south-facing master bedroom suite also has a sumptuous bathroom with a double Carrara marble vanity and a jetted soaking tub in the classic clawfoot style.
The hall bathroom’s no slouch either.
Atop all this is a fabulous private deck. Besides great views to the east, south and north, you’ll enjoy a Jacuzzi tub and an outdoor kitchen with wet bar.
An elevator takes you from the entrance hall to the grand foyer of your residence. And when you leave home, you’ll find Rittenhouse Square, shopping and dining on Rittenhouse Row and the eclectic mix of shops and restaurants on South 20th Street just about at your doorstep.
Dirt cheap, if you ask me.
